2018 has begun with a bang for our top flight man band Sauti Sol. The group closed out 2017 on a high note with the release of the crossover hit, ‘Melanin’ that has garnered over 4.9millions views in under 3 months.
This morning the MTV EMA Best African act and AFRIMA’s Best group just released the highly anticipated banger, ‘Girl Next Door’ which features Nigerian pop star and Mavin Records first lady Tiwa Savage. The jam is the second video off their forthcoming collaborations LP, Afrikan Sauce. Word is that Sauti Sol will keep dropping collaborations from around the continent until November.
Girl Next Door is a funky reggae groove with some African instrumentation touch produced by producer extraordinaire Maleek Berry. The jam got the boys lining some witty and sleek lines to Tiwa Savage who in turn sings her part in agreement. The vocal variations, groove, and vibe of the jam is just music to the ears.
We all know Bein of Sauti Sol has proclaimed his love for Tiwa for the longest time. His lines on the jam he goes in heavy, “On the down low been I’ve loving Eminado tangu Enzi za maziwa ya Nyayo, niko tayari kukupenda January to December hold my hand and don’t let me go.” This record will be the perfect jam for the boys to shoot their shot in the future.
The Jam is co-written by Sauti Sol and the Phenomenal woman Fena Gitu while the audio was mastered by Supersonic Africa. I love the jam from the arrangement, vocal prowess, production and the video is simply an eye stunner. Good job Sauti Sol and Tiwa.
