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."
