Island-Pop star Conkarah is quickly proving a worldwide summer sensation with his breakthrough hit single, “Banana (feat. Shaggy) [DJ Fle – Minisiren Remix],” available now via S-Curve Records/BMG at all DSPs and streaming services. A playful take on the traditional Jamaican folk song, “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song),” the track – featuring Conkarah’s fellow Jamaican, 2x GRAMMY® Award-winner Shaggy – is joined by a brand new companion video, filmed earlier this month in Kingston, Jamaica by director Jay Will (Major Lazer, Third World) and streaming now via YouTube.
Currently climbing iTunes’ Pop Chart in 16 countries around the world, “Banana (feat. Shaggy) [DJ Fle – Minisiren Remix]” is now impacting at multi-format radio outlets across America. The track is shaping up to be among the top songs of the summer, with over 430 million total streams across an array of platforms. “Banana (feat.
