It’s been nearly a whole year since 215 Collective released Feel About It. The track, strategically launched just before summer, went on to take Maltese airwaves by storm, gathering thousands of views on YouTube. Now, the young hip hop trio is finally back with a follow-up track, and it’s everything fans could have hoped for.
What You Want is actually the group’s third release, and it marks a slightly more aggressive sound. Chill Bill was the group’s first release back in November 2016, and the collective have been constantly dropping tracks since then. Adding a more punchy baseline to the chorus and a larger posse to the music video, the trio is set to go from strength to strength with this latest track.
The video sees the three young hip hop artists – Yannick, Eddie Fresco and Caro – do their thing in a couple of iconic urban landscapes around the island. There’s the nostalgic blue background of the old Trade Fair grounds in Naxxar, and the unmistakeable red neon of one of the island’s many petrol stations. Add a bit of rain in there, and you’ve got your hands on one of the first solid wintery bangers to come out of the island this year.
Even though it’s been nearly a year since the trio released a track together, the three artists haven’t really stopped bringing out solid tracks. Just last month, Eddie Fresco released a badass music video that saw him rapping on top of a BMW bonnet. In a cute cameo reference, in fact, Eddie’s back in the same BMW for What You Want.
“The track is yet again all about the chemistry between the three of us,” Eddie told Lovin Malta. “At the same time, three projects are being finished by different artists from the Collective.”
“We’re really thankful for everybody who came through for the music video shoot,” Eddie Fresco told Lovin Malta. “The fans, our friends, and Fabrizio Fenech’s team Anomoly are really the people who make all of this possible.”
