Brothers Theron and Timothy Thomas of the group R. City are back and ready to deliver a fresh set of flavors to celebrate their native roots in the Virgin Islands, the duo announced in a press release Tuesday.

They are best known for their smash hits, including Billboard Hot 100-charting “Locked Away” featuring Adam Levine and collaborations with music artists Drake, Rihanna, Usher, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, and Ariana Grande, just to name a few. Serving up a Caribbean twist on U.K. drill, “W.A.P.A.” is from R.City’s forthcoming mixtape, “This Is Not A Drill … This Is Really Happening,” according to the press release.

A tapestry of elusive raw energy, R. City skillfully melds music cultures together in this hypnotic track. “W.A.P.A.” embraces island rizz and the unique facets of identity that make Caribbeans the smoothest in the game, the release stated. With witty banter that takes a stab at pop culture, “W.A.P.A.” builds a rolling wave of momentum for the impending mixtape release, it said.

The Thomas brothers’ recent collaborations include Jung Kook, Latto, Ciara, Lil Durk, J. Cole, David Guetta, Arya Starr, and Justin Timberlake. They have contributed to numerous Grammy-nominated albums, including Rihanna’s “Unapologetic,” Jennifer Hudson’s self-titled album, and Ariana Grande’s “My Everything,” the release stated.

The ceiling is limitless for R. City, and they can’t wait to honor their heritage as proud Virgin Islanders with the release of their new single “W.A.P.A.,” it said.
