Video of the Week: Projexx Wants to Make You Sweat

Jamaican-born, Miami-based artist Projexx has released feel good single and video "Sweat."

The song is a banger, blessed with Projexx's blend of dancehall, Afrobeats, trap, and pop. "Sweat was born from text messages between me and a female, we were basically talking about what we are going to do to each other when we link up," the artist said in a statement. "So I basically said with all that talking you have, let’s link up in person and make our fantasy our reality.”

The video sees Projexx and a female companion in a boxing ring but, thankfully, they're not trading blows. Rather, Projexx is slouched in the corner while the lady twerks, dances and stretches. There's certainly a lot of sweating going on as he asks, "Can you shake your body-body?" The answer appear to be a decisive "yes."

"Igniting all senses, its steamy video (directed by Daniel Eguren) captures a private dance in the boxing ring for the young legend," reads the press release. "Projexx has an endless stream of compliments for the woman who moves to her own beat, singing the virtues of his star athlete's curves and swerves as she works out to his gentle instructions. 'Shake your bo-dy-bo-dy, brace your body-body, no lazy bo-dy-bo-dy,' Projexx says on the chorus."

Press Bio

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Projexx learned the fundamentals of music by sitting in and observing recording sessions of Jamaican dancehall greats like Bounty Killer, Elephant Man, and Vybz Kartel in his grandfather’s King Jammy’s legendary studio.  

At age 15, he started teaching himself how to produce, and at 17, he created his first song. Projexx grew up living between Kingston and Brampton, Canada, so his musical influences span from Drake to Dennis Brown and everything in between. In addition to Wizkid, he has also collaborated with producer Ape Drums of Major Lazer, Jamaican dancehall star Konshens, Grammy-nominated reggae artist Jesse Royal and Nigerian singer-songwriter Ruger.

His 2023 EP GRIM TAPE, VOL. II (Warner Records)  marries Projexx’s love for dancehall, hip-hop, and afrobeats and contains his buzzworthy single “Top Speed” ft. Giggs and Marksman. Previous projects include Queen Hill EP (2021) and GRIM & Family Vol. I mixtape (2020). His official full-length debut LP will arrive in 2024.
