The music video to his new single offers a charming perspective of Kenya
Blinky Bill is back with a new single off his upcoming album We Cut Keys 2. The new jam “Jam now, Simmer down” offers the kind of relaxing soulful fusion of jazz and funk that you expect from Blinky.
We Cut Keys 2 will be Bill’s second album after 2018’s Everyone’s Just Winging It and Other Fly Tales which he launched at his own concert “Blinky Bill Live 3.”
The video for “Jam Now, Simmer Down” directed by CJ Pixels and designed by Ed Photoman offers an endearing and beautiful visual of Kenya. According to Blinky, the song is dedicated to “friends and family in these trying times.”

Also of note is Octopizzo’s appearance in the music video. The Kenyan rapper gives Bill a tour of where he grew up in the video but offers no vocals on the single.
