Sarkodie & Samini Flow Over Ragga Beats in 'Love Rocks'

Sarkodie drops visuals to his ragga-influenced single " Love Rocks" featuring Samini.

Ghana's Sarkodie stunts his rapping versatility alongside dancehall artist Samini in his new jam "Love Rocks." Hours before dropping the single, the wordsmith took to Facebook, encouraging his fans to stay focused in achieving their goals and announcing the video's arrival. The reggae/ragga infused "Love Rocks" marks Sarkodie's second video under his newly founded label SarkCess Music (the first being "Adonai" with hiplife artist Castro). Laden with electronic-driven samples courtesy of producer Killbeatz, Sarkodie flexes his swift, signature Twi bars while Samini brings the dancehall vibe with his Patois hooks. In the Vertx-directed video the two Ghanaian rappers go back and forth with their bars, explaining what each can give to a woman from a dimly-lit green hallway before transferring to an empty warehouse room to continue their lyrical exchange. Watch the two go at it in "Love Rocks" below and grab the single on iTunes.
