Watch J Molley and Emtee’s Video for ‘Going Down’

J Molley and Emtee share the visuals for their collaborative single.

On what's an overdue collaboration, J Molley and Emtee connect for a banger that's easy to fall in love with. Both artists can sing as well as they rap, and on "Going Down" they exhibit both traits and the result is a potent single.


The song, which was released early this month, just got treated to visuals. Directed by J Molley himself, the video shows the two artists' performance scenes in different settings, from a movie theatre to what looks like a colonial military museum.

With "Going Down," Emtee makes yet another guest appearance which is part of an ongoing collaboration streak. Since leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment, Emtee has appeared on songs by the likes of Rouge, 25K, Focalistic and DJ Sliqe, among others.

The last time we spoke to J Molley, the young South African hip-hop artist told us he was releasing an album before the end of this year. It's not clear if the album is still coming out or if "Going Down" will be part of it.

J Molley has released two EPs Dreams Money Can Buy (2017) Leader of the Wave: a Playlist by J Molley (2018), and an album from him is the next step to formally introduce himself to the music industry.

Interview

Adekunle Gold Is Living His Best Life

We speak to the Nigerian star about how marriage and fatherhood have led him to find both newfound happiness and newfound freedom as an artist.

''I'm having the time of my life,'' says Adekunle Gold over a Zoom call while seated in his office in Lagos. ''I'm making songs that are so true to my current energy, my current vibe.'' When I got on the call with the 34-year-old artist on a Wednesday afternoon, the first thing I noticed was his hair tied up in little braids, the second was his wide smile. As we speak, the crooner laughs multiple times but it's his aura that shines through the computer screen, it lets you know better than his words that he's truly having the time of life.

Born Adekunle Kosoko, the popular Nigerian singer got married barely two years ago to fellow artist Simi. Last year, the power couple welcomed their first child. As we talk, Gold points to his journey as a father and a husband as some of the biggest inspirations at the moment not just as far as music goes but as his perspective in life and how he now approaches things.

''My [artistry] has changed a lot because being a father and being a husband has made me grow a lot and more.'' Adekunle Gold tells OkayAfrica. ''It has made me understand life a lot more too. I'm feeling more responsible for people. You know, now I have a kid to raise and I have a wife to support, to be a real man and husband and father for.'' He credits this journey with both his newfound happiness and a newfound freedom as an artist.
