Skales Debuts New Music Video for Hit Single 'Badman Love'

Premier: The tropical, boy-meets-girl music video directed by Stanz Visuals shows us that bad boys deserve love too.

Nigerian artist Skales shares his latest music video for single Badman Love.

The light-hearted track, fresh off of his June 2020 Healing Process EP release, portrays the typical love story of love at first sight.

The Kezzi produced record is sure to get fans up and dancing on their feet with the afrobeat producers' magic touch.

The inspiration for the song came through light hearted banter amongst friends, "it was born out of an argument between some of my guys and I in the studio one particular day. [One of my friends was going on] about if being "Bad" meant a guy is not capable of loving or doesn't deserve loving. I was in support of the point that no matter how people label you, even if it is as a "Badman", everyone has that person they are ready to risk it all for", Skales says, "I put my point down with better lyrics and delivered the song while some of my guys still haven't agreed with me!"
