AKUA 'One's Company' Video + EP Stream

Watch the striking and morbid video for AKUA's "One Company."


Last we heard of AKUA she was dropping one of our favorite Player Xchange collaborations to date and singing in Solange's backing band. The Montreal-Ghanaian songstress pops back onto the radar with "One's Company,"  a striking and morbid music video that features AKUA driving a hearse through Harlem and performing an autopsy on herself.  As she tells Noisey, the song is "a metaphor for the death of a relationship... It's about death and rebirth... [and] a kind of slogan for independence." Watch the video and stream AKUA's One's Company EP below, available now on iTunes.
