Sauti Sol just dropped a very… intense… video for their new single “Nishike.” Against very minimalist backdrops, the Kenyan afro-pop crooners say sayonara to their shirts as they woo their equally banging leading ladies in the Enos Olik–directed video. There’s no question that “Nishike” (Swahili for “touch me”) is a bonafide slow jam sure to secure a spot on many a late night playlist, but the only question we have now is whether or not the video will be considered too hot for TV. Sauti Sol is currently nominated for Best Group at the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards, so we’re sure the fan votes will come pouring in after this gratuitous piece of eye candy. Watch the questionably safe for work video below, and keep an eye out for Sauti Sol’s forthcoming studio album.
