Lao Ra unveils new single ‘Body Bounce’ ft. Konshens

Lao Ra
Lao Ra has unveiled her anthemic new single Body Bounce, which is available now on Black Butter Records. This song features Jamaican dancehall star Konshens, and is the first official single of a stand-out 2017 for Lao Ra, who has already opened for the likes of MØ, Crystal Fighters, Anne Marie and Rejjie Snow. We've got here another perfect summer track guys!

Body Bounce is a riot of uplifting global-pop, fusing dancehall, reggaeton, and the shared musical spaces between Lao Ra’s background in Bogota and Jamaica’s own breakout star, Konshens. The song's message is very positive, telling us to pick ourselves back up again, and keep on moving. Stream it below!



Speaking about the song Lao Ra says:
Body Bounce is about literally dancing your sadness away and moving on by shaking your body rather than dwelling on what went wrong. It is really a song about resilience.

Lao Ra has earned her reputation for twisting an eclectic array of underground sounds – and an at-times extreme upbringing – into songs with as much bite as they boast colour. The signs were arguably there on her first day of school when she ate a worm in front of her own class to exert her fearlessness, or later that year when she went on a protest because the school didn't have a girls’ football team. Lao Ra sought an escape from the looming talk of bombs and extradition in the playground by spending afternoons watching MTV, before discovering punk and deciding that if that scene originated in England, then Lao Ra would follow it over there once she graduated.

Body Bounce reaffirms Lao Ra’s innate ability to produce pop music with a lyrical sting in its tail; embracing the highs and lows of your heritage, and turning it into something unmistakeably yours. And this is unmistakeably Lao Ra.
