AKA Reminisces About His Ex on His Latest Single ‘Sweet Fire,’ And It's Pure Flames

Can't even front, "Sweet Fire" is a potent pop record.

Just before 2017 ended, AKA tweeted to his more than 2 million followers that him and his bae Bonang Matheba were calling it quits.


On his new single, "Sweet Fire," Supa Mega seemingly seeks closure from the relationship. He bears his soul, reminiscing about how the relationship started, and talks about how he feels now that it has ended:

"I remember when I used to love you/ Now I'm finna burst your bubble/ All the bad bads gon sub you/ Every mami in the streets tryna cause trouble."


"Sweet Fire" sees the rapper return to his forays into pop, which he took a break from when he released "StarSigns" with Stogie T earlier this week.

While AKA's pop attempts have been hit-and-miss, with this single, he seems to have found his pop voice. "Sweet Fire" sounds like money.

The artists shows just enough vulnerability to make the song emotive, yet he sings with such verve, it becomes such a pleasing piece of music.

"Sweet Fire" is the first single to the artist's third studio album Touch My Blood. It's promising to be yet another gem in his impressible discography.
