Every so often artists are told to try out different styles/musical approaches if they want to remain relevant and after so many years, Kenyan rapper Timothy Owuor, alias Timmy Tdat has finally heeded the advice.

The Dus Nyau hitmaker has teamed up Ugandan dancehall singer Beenie Gunter on a new jam dubbed Uptown Girl and it’s getting a lot of love from their fans.

Well, the track is about a lass who is driving the musicians because she’s so damn beautiful. I know you’re wondering what is new here since the two, especially Timmy, are always singing about women.

One of the things that makes it different for Timmy is the vibe of the song. It leans towards ragga/dancehall and a bit of traditional Uganda rhythms and as you all know, he is new to these genres.

Surprisingly, he really came through. Seriously though, when has he ever disappointed us? Timmy’s style blends well with that of Beenie Gunter so much so that you will retain this song on your playlist for a very long time.

The beat did not affect his flow though I must admit that at some point, I found it strange that he was rapping to this kind of beat. Notably, Beenie Gunter also did a good job.

I have some concerns about the video because I didn’t like the execution. As I was watching it, I kept wondering why the director decided to centralise it in one particular scene yet there are beautiful shots that he could have taken.

Listen to Uptown Girl below and tell us what you think.
