Walshy Fire Links Up with Mr Eazi & Kranium In the Colorful Music Video for 'Call Me'

Get into the latest single off of Walshy Fire's upcoming project, "Abeng."

Walshy Fire has been on a roll, giving us a glimpse of what we can expect from his new album Abeng with "No Negative Vibes" and "Round of Applause." Now, the Jamaican-born DJ enlists Mr Eazi and Kranium for another cross-cultural collab with his latest single, "Call Me."

The music video, directed by Jocelyn Cooper, has also dropped and is a colorful affair—nodding to both the Ghanaian and Rastafarian flags with the monochrome scenes of yellow, green and red.

"This is basically a song for the ladies. It took me about three years to put it together. Of the songs on the album, I'm most proud of this one," Walshy Fire says to Billboard. "I think this is going to be one of the biggest songs I've ever done. We had so much fun on the video shoot. I haven't seen a video connect to a song [lyrically] in such a way in a long time and I'm extremely proud of how it came out."

Watch "Call Me" below.

Grammys 2020: Performers Pay Tribute to Nipsey Hussle In Traditional Eritrean Attire

During a Grammy tribute, featuring John Legend, Kirk Franklin, Meek Mill and more, a group of dancers paid homage to the late rapper's Eritrean heritage, by sporting traditional garb.

The 2020 Grammys have been one of great reflection, as various artists and public figures that we've lost recently have received tributes.

One of the artists commemorated tonight was the late Eritrean-American rapper, Nipsey Hussle who was killed in March of last year in his hometown of Los Angeles. His tribute featured performances from artists like John Legend, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, Kirk Franklin, as well as fellow LA rappers YG and Roddy Rich.

The tribute opened with a heartfelt performance from Meek Mill. Later, during a rendition of their collaboration "Higher," DJ Khaled and John Legend brought out a group of dancers dressed in traditional zurias and other Eritrean attire—a tribute to the late rapper's unique heritage. "I'm half American and half Eritrean—as much as I am a black person from America, I am a black person from Africa too," Nipsey once said in an interview.
