Lyric Video Premiere: Casely Introduces Seductive “Tráfico”

Miami native Casely, aka Jean-Carlos Casely, unveils his brand-new single/lyric video “Tráfico,” followed by his full-length album, The King of the South, slated to drop in July.

On The King of the South, Casely connects to his Panamanian roots.

Speaking to his distinctive sound, Casely says, “I think now more than ever, people are scared to be creative and different. But it’s the people who step outside the box who are going to win.”

Casely’s previous hits include “Sweat” with Lil Jon and Machel Montano, “Emotional Remix” with Flo Rida, and “Is It You.” “Sweat” amassed more than two million streams.

The son of Trinidadian and Panamanian parents, Casely studied at the renowned Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship. A classically trained pianist, he’s performed at Miami’s Calle Ocho concerts, The Barbados Music Festival, and on a European concert tour.

Known for his polished vocals, Casely’s influences include Prince, Michael Jackson, Death Cab for Cutie, and John Mayer.

Casely has been featured by CNN, MTV, BET, Rolling Stone, Earmilk, Latina.com, and Seventeen Magazine. Previously signed by Epic Records under Sony Music’s umbrella and Ultra Records, Casely has collaborated with Pitbull, Flo Rida, Lil Jon, DJ Khaled, and Rick Ross.

“Tráfico” opens on a sensuous, thrumming rhythm, blending Latin and dembow savors into a deliciously provocative tune. Oozing accents infuse the melody with sexy tinges as Casely’s smooth voice imbues the lyrics with erotic, evocative flavors. Deep background harmonies deliver bumping tones, giving the song fat depth and dimension.

With “Tráfico,” Casely pushes out voluptuous energy, riding a titillating beat capped by the suave flow of Casely’s plush voice.
