You Should Really Listen to Amaarae's New Single 'Spend Some Time' Featuring Wande Coal

"A humble nod to the disco divas of the '70s."

Amaarae comes through with her brand new single and music video for "Spend Some Time," featuring Nigerian heavyweight Wande Coal.

The Ghanaian artist, who dropped one of our favorite tracks last year with "Fluid," now comes back with another highly-addictive new tune. "Spend Some Time" pairs Amaarae's hazy vocal delivery with light synth hits and sparse beat work produced by ØBED and Rvdical The Kid.

The new single is paired with a disco-era style music video, directed by David Nicol-Sey, that features Amaarae and a cast of "super nova video girls - The Intergalactic Strippers," as the artist mentions.

"Spend Some Time is a humble nod to the disco divas of the 70s; (ie. Donna Summer, Diana Ross) Featuring sensual solo vignettes (a la Donna Summer's 'Love To Love You Baby') and a mercurial neon club scene where the ladies dance the night away," Amaarae writes about the new single.


"The video brings together a group of women sharing their time and good energy with one another; They are enjoying themselves and abandoning the stresses of their everyday lives. Though it is moody and warm in its visual aesthetic, Spend Some Time is also a light-hearted and sexy take on friendship and intimacy."
