Kwabs Casts London Under His 'Wrong Or Right' Spell

Kwabs 'Wrong Or Right' video marks the official coming of 'the Year of the Kwabs.'


It's only right that Kwabs, the second coming of soul-electro by way of London/Ghana, would make his video debut with a visual exorcism as goosebump-inducing as his crooning prowess. The video for the 90s R&B-nodding "Wrong Or Right," produced by SOHN, features our gospel-strength hero casting spells all over London. The man's pipes are a dose of spiritual awakening, as they cause a crew of nimble-bodied dancers to take to the streets. With this first video off his forthcoming EP, Kwabs has officially arrived. Watch "Wrong Or Right" below and stay tuned for more on the upcoming 4-track EP of the same name, due February 3. We're looking forward to what he has in store for us this year.
