BET award-winning Ghanaian artiste, Stonebwoy, and South Africa’s Focalistic join forces for the first time. Together, the duo mixes their familiar cocktail of afrobeats, dancehall, highlife, and bubbly melody influences to craft an up-tempo ode Amapiano sound.
The song is a mash-up of deep house, jazz, and lounge music, with synthesizers, airy pads, and broad percussive basslines. It is characterized by high-pitched piano melodies, Kwaito basslines, low tempo South African house rhythms from the 1990s, and percussions from another local house subgenre called as Bacardi.
The track's cheerful tone stems from a spontaneous weekend journey from South Africa to Ghana on Focalistic’s end, which gave rise to the two African superstars' latest collaboration. Both men don’t stray far from their catalogs’ mainframe: feel good outputs to score moments of aural escape.
The song video was recorded in Stonebwoy's native Ghana, at a variety of indoor venues that depict Ghana's contemporary, dynamic and energetic "dance night culture" towards the end. Stonebwoy and Focalistic also serve us a joyful mood and aesthetic in the official video, created by prolific Rex.
