FORMER Subkonshus recording deejay Darrio has shot his first official music video since his exit from that camp last year. The video is for the edgy and sexy single Friend With Benefits on Craigy T’s No Apology rhythm.

Recorded recently, Friends With Benefits is on Gafjam Records label. It’s available on iTunes.

Directed by Dameon Gayle, 1

video is scheduled to be released in days.

“It has been a process of revamping and reanalysing the new image and direction for my career, and organising the flow with the new members of PROJECTDarrio. We are now ready to churn out all the new material that I have been recording, and also getting the visuals out so fans can see a different side to me,” Darrio said.

Shot at various locations in Kingston, the video follows a girl, who is cheating on her boyfriend with Darrio in private. However, in public, she pretends to be just friends with him.

The Trelawny-born entertainer shared how the lyrics came about.

“Almost everyone, at one time or another, has had this kind of friendship or interaction, so it’s relatable to most, even my own experience — past, present or future. It’s not talking about any specific girl at a specific point in time, but people will speculate based on rumors who the song is about,” he said.

Darrio, whose given name is Darrio Johnson, is slated to perform at Trelawny Jerk Festival on March 27.
