All the way back in January, Towkio teased the song over text messages with the legendary Rick Rubin. Given the green light by Kanye, Towkio surely knew he had a hit and he wasn’t wrong.
The SAVEMONEY team member has been leading up to his debut album ‘World Wide .Wav’ with single releases of ‘Drift’ and ‘Hot Shit’. The third installment on singles was once again premiered on Beats 1 Radio, this time with an accompanying Zane Lowe interview. His drive for success on the album is evident on ‘Swim’ with lines such as ‘I found the light/now that’s all I see/so we ride that wave’. The visuals for the track play with some impressive camera techniques, as it appears Towkio is walking on water until we learn he is just at a basketball court at the end.
