2face Idibia & Bridget Kelly's ‘Let Somebody Love You’ Video

2face Idibia and Bridget Kelly release the Lagos-shot video for their bump-n-grind duet ‘Let Somebody Love You.'


Earlier this month Naija pop royalty 2face Idibia let loose the first single off his forthcoming sixth studio album The Ascension. Produced by Femi ‘Femdouble’ Ojetunde, slow-churner "Let Somebody Love You" sees 2baba link up on a bump-n-grind duet with Roc Nation's Bridget Kelly. The Nigeria-Jersey collaborators have now set their nostalgic, Ginuwine-esque love story to visuals in a video shot in Lagos from director Luke Biggins. The Ascension is due out this July.
