Watch Riky Rick and Mlindo The Vocalist’s Music Video For ‘You and I’

Riky Rick's latest single 'You and I' has a video.

Family means a lot to Riky Rick. The South African rapper and producer has rapped extensively about giving his partner a tough time in the past, and has even gone onto put a picture of himself and his son on the cover of his Family Values album, an album in which he raps a lot about his family.


His latest single "You and I" sounds like a chapter from Riky's past; he raps about messing up his relationship with his cheating ways. The video shows Riky partying it up with strippers in the club while his bae and their kids struggle to reach him on the phone.

"You and I" features the singer Mlindo The Vocalist who's gained popularity in the past few years for his nonchalant singing style and the relatable stories he tells mostly in his language IsiZulu.

It's not clear if the song will be part of an upcoming project from Riky. The artist managed to remain part of the larger conversation last year without releasing a lot of music, and earlier this year, he hosted the inaugural iteration of his festival Cotton Fest.
