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.

The 20 Best Ghanaian Songs of 2019

Featuring Pappy Kojo, Sarkodie, Amaarae, Kwesi Arthur, Shatta Wale, Efya GuiltyBeatz, Joey B, R2Bees and many more.

2019 was definitely an exciting year for Ghanaian music.

Right from the top of the year, we saw both new and established make their mark with songs that would soundtrack the nation's airwaves, functions, and nights for months to come. In 2019 we got to experience an E.L comeback, Shatta Wale and Beyoncé on the same song, numerous solid Ghana-Naija collaborations, and bop after bop by old and new artists alike.

We also saw the rise of brand new artists, starting from the likes of J.Derobie's wave making debut in January, to Kofi Mole's widespread trap anthem, to Fameye's declaration of brokeness, to the promising future superstar Sam Opoku. As far as projects go, 2019 was a good year for that in the Ghana music space as well. We were blessed with an EP from Sarkodie, an album by the superstar duo R2Bees, talented singer King Promise's debut album, Ko-Jo Cue's stellar debut, and M.anifest's 7-track feel-good EP, among several others.

Ghanaian music has been stepping its game up lately, and there's only one way to go from here. Below, we give you the rundown on the Ghanaian songs that stole ears and hearts and set the pace for the country's sound this year.

Check out the list below. Listen in no particular order.—Nnamdi Okirike
