Yemi Alade Drops the High-Energy Music Video for Her Single 'Bounce'

The Nigerian "Queen of Music Videos" is back with another one.

The music video for Yemi Alade's latest dance track "Bounce" is here.

The visual sees the singer hitting crisp dance moves to the song in a colorful bedroom, a space filled with multiple hanging telephones and even a laundromat—where things get really live as the singer and a group of back-up dancers deliver a choreographed dance number. The high-energy video is a fitting match for the song's pulsating production.

The video was directed by Sesan. Check it out below.

Yemi Alade is back, with a new track just in time for the summer.

The Nigerian singer has released her latest song "Bounce," a bubbly tune, tailor made for the dance floor.

"Shake body. Bounce," she urges listeners throughout the Edgarboi-produced track. The repetitive lyrics—which see the artist flexing her range and unique flow—and upbeat production make it easy to hit some of our favorite moves to.


In May, the artist teased the release of her forthcoming album Woman of Steel, which will be her fourth studio album to date.

She dropped the Rick Ross-assisted remix of her hit 2018 song "Oh My Gosh," back in April, which has further added to the song's visibility. She released the songs "Yaji," and "Oga" earlier this year, which both came with memorable music videos. We'll be looking forward to even more exciting new visuals from the artist, as she's known as the "Nigerian Queen of Music Videos."

With the type of vibrancy delivered on "Bounce," we're excited to see what the artist has in store for us with Woman of Steel.

Until then, listen to the track down below.
