Jumanji

Album: Single release only (2017)
Charted: 13

Songfacts®:

  • Hailing from East London, B Young spent several years as a sound engineer during which he crafted his Afro-Swing sound. Young eventually came up with this banger, which became his debut UK top 20 hit.
  • The song finds Young engaging in some dirty talk over Antiwave's post dancehall beat:

    She fling fling off the panties
    And them tings extra fancy
    She know just what she came to do
    She wanna live life jumanji
    Girl you know I got just the place for you.


    Jumanji is an expression of euphoria when accomplishing a great feat. It originates from the eponymous jungle adventure board game in which the first player to reach Jumanji yells the city's name.
