Watch Adekunle Gold's New Music Video For 'Young Love'
This sultry but upbeat track is the third single on his upcoming album, Afro Pop.
This year has seen the talented Adekunle Gold serving us some genuinely dope music. After he released the joint track "Promise" with his wife and fellow musician Simi, he followed that up with his first solo track of the year, "Before You Wake Up". He then went on to drop the Fela-inspired high-life track "Kelegbe Megbe" towards the end of June and accompanied it with a music video that boasted an incredibly avante-garde aesthetic. After recently announcing that he'd be dropping Afro Pop, his third studio album soon, he's just released a new single entitled "Young Love" and true to form, it's a definite banger.
"I know this is young love, feels like a lifetime. Although this is young love, don't ever leave my side," the Nigerian artist sings as he describes a new romance he's stumbled into with a beautiful woman. The lyrics speak about how he hopes to spend forever with this woman in a way that makes the track relatable to pretty much all of us in one way or the other. The catchy and up-tempo beat was produced by Okan, an upcoming beatsmith in the UK who has worked with the likes of Mr Eazi.
If you're looking for some new music to usher in the weekend on a high note, this pop-infused song is definitely the one to be listening to.
