Cover Drive: 'Dappy collaboration is amazing'

By
Cover Drive have released behind-the-scenes footage from the music video of their latest single 'Explode'.

The band, who collaborated with Dappy for the track, admitted that they were keen to team up with the rapper after supporting his recent UK tour.

Watch the backstage footage below:



Jamar Harding said: "Our first tour was actually with Dappy on his 'Rockstar' tour and after that we had such a good relationship with him that we figured we should do a song with him.

"'Explode' came about and he killed it."

Singer Amanda Reifer added: "We've wanted to work with him for a long time. We finally got a chance to work together and create this song and it's amazing."

Discussing the concept of the clip, which was shot in East London, Reifer explained: "We found this location that kind of reminded us of this pub in Barbados called Reggae Lounge.

"It's a sweaty party with Dappy. He's one of the judges in the battle of the bands show that we're entering in this club."

'Explode' marks the fourth single from the group's debut album Bajan Style, which has so far spawned top ten hits 'Lick Ya Down', 'Twilight' and 'Sparks'.

Reifer recently insisted that she was flattered by the media comparing her to Rihanna.
