Triple One have always had their eyes on international success. From their days of posting on the prolific Astari Youtube channel to cultivating their own cult-like fan base, you can’t deny their work ethic. With the video for their new song “Showoff”, you can definitely tell that they’re trying to paint a picture that’s bigger than a local scene, and they’re bringing their friends with them.
“Showoff” is a pop-laced, bass-heavy trap cut full of melodies and bars. It finds the boys in a high school alongside some of Australia’s best up and comers, including grime act Wombat and the incredibly aggressive Raj Mahal. It’s a comedic video that shows a bunch of people having a good time. Don’t let that take away from the song, however. Emcees Obi and Marty come with hard, flurrying triplet flows that culminates in a catchy hook from the group’s hook expert Dijon. It’s fun, it’s frantic, it’s banging.
