Road stopper Kranium has tapped rising Jamaican star Rytikal on a rambunctious single, “Block Traffic.”

“A savvy mix of sexual energy but not provocative, heartwarming feelings of love, and gaudy mist, the duo shine brightly with an amazing track,” Marie Driven, the Brooklyn-based Haitian American entertainment guru told Caribbean Life on Wednesday.

To go along with the track is a new music video that stars the duo in a natural setting, with Kranium swooning over a beautiful woman, according to Driven, managing partner of PlaybookMG.

“The video gives viewers feelings of a romantic film,” she said. “Rytikal joins in and professes his love for a woman as well in the most sensual of ways.”

Driven said the duo wanted to start 2021 with “a bang,” with the video providing “enough fireworks of love to have people tuned in from start to finish.

“Critics might even call the official video for ‘Block Traffic’ the Jamaican version hit, romantic drama film “The Notebook.”

Driven said Kranium is gearing up for “a huge 2021 with dropping potential record-breaking music.”

She said Rytikal — who has been pushed to fame with major co-signs and a feature on Audiomack’s visual series “Hold a Medz” — “has been tabbed by critics and fans of music worldwide as one of the next up in Reggae.”

“If you’re in the mood for feelings of bliss and vibrancy, then this new song and visual colombo is for you,” Driven said.

“Kranium ascends into worldwide stardom, while Rytikal embraces his newfound fame,” she added.

You can stream “Block Traffic” on all platforms and watch the official video on YouTube.
