P-Square Share the Music Video for Their New Love Anthem "Away"

Nigerian duo, P-Sqaure, share the music video for their latest single "Away."

Naija twins P-Square are back with their first jam of 2017, and it comes just in time for Valentine's Day.


The group share the video for "Away," a pulsating love anthem, replete with sentimental lyrics and booming production. If you're still not ready for tomorrow's "festivities," give this song a listen.

The video follows the twins as they serenade their love interests in an empty, but lavish club. Traditional dancers and expensive sports cars are also in tow.

 

"Away" follows last year's massive comeback jam "Bank Alert." P-Square haven't dropped and album since  2014's Double Trouble, but we're hoping that this release is a sign of more to come from Nigeria's biggest pop duo.

Watch their latest below and grab the song on iTunes.
