Juls & Niniola Connect For the Afrobeat-Meets-Amapiano 'Love Me'

Watch the sinister music video for the new single, directed by Ray Fiasco.

British-Ghanaian artist, producer and DJ Juls connects with Nigerian singer Niniola for a head-nodding concoction in the form of "Love Me," the second single from his upcoming album.

The track sees Juls blending horns and guitars inspired by Fela and Tony Allen's afrobeat sound over an amapiano-leaning beat. It's all brought together by Niniola's soothing vocal delivery.

"This record is spiritual, so I'm very excited about it," Juls mentions. "Niniola is one of my favourite African artists so it's an honour to have her bless me. I threw in some elements of South African Amapiano in there too. It's all about the global sound of Africa for me right now. It's Africa to the world."

The single, which dropped last week, is now accompanied by a brand new and dark music video. Directed by Ray Fiasco, the clip is inspired by slasher films and focuses on a story that goes through lust, rage and a murderous crime of passion, as a press statement reveals.

Watch the new music video for Juls and Niniola's "Love Me" below.

TOBi comes through with the new cross-Atlantic visuals for his latest single "Dollas and Cents," which sees him linking up with producer Juls.

The new music video, which we're premiering here today, sees the rising Nigerian-Canadian artist looking towards his birthplace of Lagos for a story that speaks to our current times. Directed by C.S., the new clip toggles between Lagos and Toronto scenes as TOBi and dancer Tiwa Pearl (who was recently in Black is King) playfully connect through a FaceTime call.

"I was supposed to be in Nigeria in March 2020 for the first time since I left as a child," mentions TOBi. "The pandemic ruined that plan but I still wanted to connect with the motherland and cook up a video across the Atlantic. so that's exactly what we did and it was a dope experience to work with creatives in the Naija scene."
