Watch Rowlene and Gemini Major’s Jolly Music Video For ‘Runaway’

Rowlene releases a new single from her 2018 project The Evolution Of a Robot: 2nd Generation.

South African R&B singer, Rowlene's new music video for "Runaway," featuring artist and producer Gemini Major, is a celebration of love. And what's more fitting than colorful walls as backdrops and dancing under the sun in Cape Town to celebrate a jolly relationship?


As the lyrics suggest, the two (who are a couple in the video) decided to leave everything behind and celebrate their love, which Rowlene signs she was afraid of doing.

"Runaway" is the latest single from Rowlene's 2018 project The Evolution Of a Robot: 2nd Generation, which was released under Nasty C's Tall Rack Records, which Rowlene is signed to.

The 21-track project featured the likes of Kid X, Lastee, A-Reece, Nasty C and Nadia Nakai among a few others.
