Claye is a UK-based artist-producer from Kingston, Jamaica. Not too long ago, he released a contemporary dancehall single, entitled, “Murda”.

Claye – “Murda”

“I had an idea to write a song about a girl that’s cheeky and stunning as we’d say in Jamaica, ‘Badgyal’. It just so happened when I was in ideas mode I was watching an oldie but goodie, ‘Murder She Wrote’, and it all just clicked. I decided to go through some sound palate before attempting the production and the sample on the drum machine said ‘KILLA’. This was where it all began and when the music presents itself in such a way, I never fight it.” – Claye

‘Murda’ is the first single from Claye’s upcoming album. The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, harmonious vocals, and vibey instrumentation flavored with a tropical island vibe.

Claye’s musical influences include Timbaland, The Neptunes, Teddy Riley, and Hans Zimmer. The go-to songwriter-producer received his big break when he signed a publishing deal with Roc-Nation.

Shortly afterward, he co-wrote Sean Paul’s “Hold My Hand (I’ll Be There)” single featuring Keri Hilson. The song was featured on Paul’s Grammy-nominated “Imperial Blaze” album, and it has amassed over 50M streams online.
