Let Shirazee's 'Iguana' Jump Start Your Weekend Dance Party

This new single from the Benin-raised, NYC-based songwriter is such a jam. Watch our premiere of the "Iguana" music video.

Shirazee's "Iguana" is such a jam.

The new single from the Benin-raised, New York City-based singer-songwriter is built on a heavily-infectious and potent afrobeats rhythm that could jump start any dance party.

"Iguana" is now getting the music video treatment in this clip we're premiering here today.

The video follows two older gentlemen who still have an eye for girls to what looks like one of NYC's best underground African dance parties.

Once there, we find Shirazee performing, plenty of eye-catching dancers and much more.

"The Iguana video is what happens when Africa is accurately translated through free-flowing rhythmic music and colorful visuals that were once only in my head," Shirazee tells OkayAfrica. "It's with great pleasure that I'm sharing this with the world and it's only the beginning."

Watch Shirazee "turn up the club like Tekno" in the music video for "Iguana" above.

If you're in NYC, head to the music video premiere party tonight at The Vnyl.
