Joeboy Recruits Kwesi Arthur on New Remix of 'Door'

Joeboy Recruits Kwesi Arthur on Remix of 'Door' & Music Video

Joeboy enlists Kwesi Arthur on the new remix to his single 'Door' and shares the accompanying visuals.

Nigerian artist Joeboy has recently dropped the remix to his single "Door" as well as the music video. He recruits Ghanaian artist Kwesi Arthur on both the remix as well as the accompanying visuals for the track. The original version of "Door" features on Joeboy's 14-track debut album Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic which was released at the beginning of February this year.

Musically, the remix is fairly similar to the original version of "Door" with the addition of Kwesi Arthur's verses having stepped up the lyricism and overall atmosphere of the track. The synergy between the two artists is seamless and translates well visually.

The music video itself was directed by Andy Madjitey and was shot in Ghana. The opening scene of the music video is of Joeboy, a lovestruck young man perched outside of his love interest's house in the hopes that he can meet with her—much to the horror of her mother. The crisp visuals are replete with scenic backgrounds filled with nature and lush greenery. The high point of the video is, of course, the artist walking towards a door in the middle of a forest where he is finally united with his lover.

Speaking about how the collaboration came about, Joeboy says the following:

"I was in Ghana for a media tour for my album 'Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic' the atmosphere and vibe being there inspired me to want to feature a Ghanaian artiste on the video for the song and Kwesi Arthur was the first person to come to mind because we already have this synergy that is evident in the smash hit 'Baajo' by Kwesi Arthur featuring me, I felt like he was the right person for the song so I decided to send him the track, he loved it and recorded on it, a day later we shot the video in Ghana and voilaaaaa."

11 Rwandan Artists You Should Be Listening To

Musicians like Bushali, Kivumbi King, Rita Ange Kagaju, and Alyn Sano have been putting their mark on the ever-changing Rwandan soundscape.

The current landscape of modern Rwandan music is more dynamic than ever before, from updated versions of traditional folk sounds to the recent 'KinyaTrap' phenomenon that has permeated playlists across the country. For decades, Rwandan airwaves have been dominated by international hits — and by a handful of established Rwandan superstars — but now, as the country continues to develop and diversify, so does its musical setting, with new and different sounds ascending from the hills. The past five years have seen the emergence of an army of young artists eager to reclaim their languages (Rwanda has four official languages) and identity, interlacing their music with influences that stretch far and wide.

Here are 11 artists that have emerged in the past five years to put their mark on the ever-changing Rwandan soundscape.
