Listen to Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle’s 2-Track EP ‘I Want Something New’

Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle join forces as Rick Jade.

After collaborating on the song "I Pray," one of South Africa's most loved couple Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle drop a two-track EP.


The duo goes by the name Rick Jade, which comes from the artists' real names Ricardo and Jade. I Want Something New is a celebration of love, which makes sense why it is released on Valentine's Day. The project's cover art sees illustrator M4RK reimagine the Garden of Eden with Bontle and Priddy.

Sonically, I Want Something New combines R&B and Afrobeats, which plays as the perfect backdrop for documenting the highest order of emotion, love.

In the song "Sumtin New," R&B artist and close friend of Priddy Ugly's, KLY makes an appearance, and as you might already know, the man can't do no wrong.

I Want Something New is a thoroughly enjoyable project consisting of two beautiful love songs that will make your Valentine's Day a memorable one.

Bontle and Priddy continue to be everyone's #LoveGoals as they seem to be growing from strength to strength, having been together for approximately 10 years.
