Leftside and Tekashi 6ix9ine’s “NINI” is going viral on TikTok possibly breathing new life into the dancehall hip hop crossover banger.
Dancehall artiste Leftside received one of his biggest commercial hits earlier this year when American rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine tapped him for a sample of his “Phat Punani” classic for use on his single “Punani.” The rapper’s song has since garnered over 115,000,000 views on Youtube. However, the collaboration between Tekashi and the Jamaican entertainer was not over just yet, since Leftside also got a place on the album with a track “NINI.” That track has already had over 5,000,000 views on Youtube.
While Tekashi 6ix9ine’s TattleTale did not do the numbers the rapper would have hoped, it seems the track continues to be a favorite among users on the TikTok platform. Leftside has been keeping track of the happenings and took to Instagram to share various clips of persons dancing to the track from all over the world. “YES YES. NINI (@6ix9ine x @leftsideja ) IS NOW VIRAL ON @tiktok. #DAME. DOPE DANCE YOW. #Xcitement @kybba_ @limitless_tk. BIG TUNE,” he wrote in the captions of the recent post.
