The video explores feelings of flirtation, desire, intrigue, chemistry and how they tend to draw two people together. Give it To Me will be included in Miguel’s highly anticipated fifth studio album, Viscera, coming soon.
BABY STORME: SUNGLASSES AT NIGHT
Ahead of her halloween themed album “Forever Halloween”, Baby Storme delivers visuals for the infectious single, “Sunglasses At Night”. The record has that early 90s pop nostalgic to it and Baby Storme’s vocals coast with the ease and incredible smoothness. Sunglasses At Night is about the fear of being vulnerable with someone because they might break your heart.
Nigerian singer and songwriter Asake shares the music video for “Remember,” featured on his latest album, Work of Art. The music video was directed by Joshua Valle and Edgar Esteves of Blank Square Productions. The visuals starts at an orchestral performance then follows Asake around Paris as he reminisces on a love interest – ultimately leading to them reuniting.

Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer, Tems has blessed us with her new single “Me & U” which has been highly anticipated since her last release in 2020.
