MHD's Music Video for 'Bébé' Is a Glowing Celebration of Black Love

The cutest!

MHD's new music video for his new single "Bébé" featuring Dadju will brighten your day.


The afro trap king co-directed the visual with Stéphane Ridard, where we follow the makings of a wedding celebration between MHD and his bébé, played by Justine Kamara, the fourth runner-up of Miss France 2016.

Everyone in the video is dripping with effortless swag, and we honestly can't expect anything less. With a classic mansion as the backdrop, coordinated dance moves including the shaku between MHD and Dadju, and the cutest handshake between MHD and Kamara, this music video is indeed a glowing celebration of black love.

Feast your eyes below and be sure to revisit our interview with MHD, where we chat about his sophomore album 19, here.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
