LA-based Zimbabwean artist-producers Bantu and Dr. Chaii are here with their massive new collaboration titled DiCaprio. Featuring multi-platinum selling British singer and songwriter Bipolar Sunshine DiCaprio serves as the third single to be taken from the upcoming 6-track collaborative EP, following their breakthrough hit single Jackie Chan, and the summer hit featuring Soaky Siren called Summer Whine.
Bantu and Dr. Chaii have amassed over 200 million streams between them, thanks to their recent collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Anuel AA titled Familia from the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse film soundtrack. Bantu and Dr. Chaii have also produced and written for some of the biggest tracks of the year, including the UK Top 5 charting single Tip Toe by Jason Derulo and French Montana, and the Latin Grammy Award nominated Hey Ma from J Balvin, Camila Cabello and Pitbull.
Bantu and Dr. Chaii have also collaborated with the likes of Chris Brown, Rita Ora, Dua Lipa, Sean Paul, LAUV, Jonas Blue, Maroon 5, A$AP Rocky, Fifth Harmony, and Tove Stryke, among others and been supported by BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, Beats 1 Radio, MTV Base, VEVO, Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube Music, to mention a few, becoming two of the most exciting hitmakers in pop music today. Their intent to reflect their multicultural background in their music while making global impact, the trademark Bantu x Dr. Chaii sound is led by the authentic culture and colour, infectious sounds, rhythms and stories that both artists and producers bring to all their projects.
Speaking about the inspiration for their new track DiCaprio, Bantu and Dr. Chaii say, “This song is inspired by all the amazing sounds and genres that are coming from around the world. If we were to try and describe ‘DiCaprio’, we’d say it’s a fusion of Middle Eastern, African and Brazilian rhythm and melody. It’s the first time we’ve worked with Bipolar Sunshine, and it’s one of the most favourite songs we’ve ever been a part of. With this track, we literally said, ‘man let’s make something fun that people can dance to’, and that’s what happened, it’s one of those songs that honestly feels like it wrote itself”.
