DUBAI: US-Saudi rapper Skinny is back on track with a new music video produced by US record producer Swizz Beatz.
Released this month, the song is titled “Saudi Most Wanted” and is Skinny’s first clip after a two-year hiatus.
The three-minute video, which already has over half a million views, is a mix of the singer’s Arab and Western heritage. It features the music sensation, whose real name is Abdullah Al-Harbi, wearing traditional Saudi attire while rocking chunky golden chains with loose matching sets.
In a post he shared this week, Swizz Beatz teased a new album drop for Skinny. “Album coming soon. It was a pleasure to executive produce this Big Zone,” wrote the Grammy-winning producer to his 4.4 million followers, adding the Saudi flag emojis. “We’re just getting started.”
Skinny, 36, was born in Riyadh to an American mother and Saudi father. He released his debut mixtape “Ghetto Disneyland” in 2014 and has, since then, been taking the music industry by storm.
In 2019, the songwriter and producer released the single and music video for “Never Snitch (Alhumdulilah),” which charted No. 1 on Apple Music Middle East. He also released his album “Thank You For Nothing” in September of that year, and it was ranked first on the streaming platform.
Skinny is also the founder and CEO of 966 Entertainment.
