Watch Akua perform a hazy live rendition of "All Of Lust" for Yours Truly.
<p>Montreal songstress <strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/followakua" target="_blank">AKUA</a> </strong>links up with <a href="http://yourstru.ly/" target="_blank"><strong>Your Truly</strong></a> to capture this hazy live performance of, the as-of-yet unreleased jam, "All Of Lust." As AKUA tells YT, the song is inspired by a trip to Thailand and written from perspective of "lustful foreigner eyes." In the pre-performance interview, the singer also talks about her Ghanaian father and how her name comes from the common tradition of naming children after the day of the week they're born on (hers is Wednesday).
