Kobi Jonz' New Afro-Dancehall Jam Will Soundtrack Your Weekend

We premiere the new music video for "Anticipitation."

Rising Nigerian artist Kobi Jonz rolls through with a new video from his debut EP, Xylem.

His new single, "Anticipation," is a highly-addictive and well-crafted afro-dancehall tune that pairs smooth synthesizer stabs with Kobi's story of lovers who "are apart but not far at heart," as he mentions.

The song was produced by Yoshii and Joseph Appeah. It's new clip follows Kobi and a group of girls to a high-rise condo and pool.

Watch our premiere of the music video for "Anticipation" below and grab it on Kobi's Xylem EP, which is available now.
