Afro-fusion monarch Burna Boy takes a break from his more political, energetic releases to share a more intimate single titled ‘On the Low’.
Produced by Kel P, the song is very mellow but not devoid of the signature afrobeats bounce. Burna Boy serenades his “Angelina” with promises of a future together and the authenticity of his love. The intimacy of the song is further emphasized by the video which is set indoors. Directed by Meji Alabi, the video easily tells the love story through dance scenes featuring only the artiste ad one dancer. Each movement is inviting without being invasive, and we can’t help but be drawn in. The brilliant use of natural light also lends to the authenticity of the story, and enables us appreciate the privacy even more.
With the festive season just around the corner, ‘On the Low’ comes just in the nick of time. We fully expect to hear this jam at all the Christmas parties and hangouts.
