Blending Caribbean slang with Nigerian pidgin, Laycon brings the heat to us in New York City with his latest track, released with another song called ‘Fall for Me’ featuring YKB. The two records vary in style, but they are both carry a vibe. Has anyone ever doubted you? Well, Laycon packs the track with confident lyrics that may help you shake the haters (and the devil) off. If you are in the mood to dance with music filled with self-assurance, this one is for you.
