Watch Kojey Radical's Striking New Video For 'Can't Go Back'

Funk & soul-influences are paired with beautiful dance moves in this new video from the British-Ghanaian artist.

Kojey Radical is readying the release of his third project, which will look to explore themes of depression, god, family, self-worth, creativity, and love, according to his team.

The British-Ghanaian artist is now sharing the striking new music video for the album's lead single "Can't Go Back," a song we included in our favorite Ghanaian tracks the month.

The new music video for "Can't Go Back," directed by Kojey Radical and longtime creative partner Charlie Di Placido, pairs the song's funk and soul-influences with alluring dances performed in an empty warehouse. The track and video are both seemingly uplifting but also have a darker undertone as they address the artist's struggles with depression.


"This video feels like a return to form for me," Kojey Radical mentions. "When I went through the darkest parts of my depression I used dance as a sort of healing therapy I wanted to reflect the joy of losing your self in a moment and letting everything go. It's taking things all the way back to the basics to begin again and free yourself from past trauma."

Watch the new music video for "Can't Go Back" below and stick around for a snippet of new track "20/20" near the end.

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
