Asante's 'Drop Money' Is Your Weekend Soundtrack
Get into sleek boy, Asante's new afrobeats-meets-R&B EP.
Asante is releasing his new sleek boyEP today and to mark the occasion he's dropping the video for "Drop Money," one of the new release's highlights that's tailor-made for the dance floor.
The song's music video, which we're premiering here, is a lively affair that features some of Detroit's best afrobeats dancers.
"For the "drop money" music video, I worked with my go-to camera guru Cylent again... after seeing how well Run You Mad's music video was received," Asante writes to OkayAfrica. "I knew I wanted to highlight the growing African/Caribbean scene here in Detroit in it, so we shot some of it at a Jerk X Jollof party... an event brand I did creative strategy for [that's] become the premiere African/Caribbean experience in the city."
"We wanted the visual for "drop money" to be super energetic/dance oriented, so I gathered some of Detroit's best afrobeat dancers for a shoot. Uncle Azeez, Zawadi, Odili, Ifasooto,Pillah, Jide, Rika, and Francis have all been killin' it here in Detroit at the Jerk X Jollof events, so I had to give them a chance to represent!"
