Watch Wande Coal & Wale’s World Class Visuals For ‘Again’ (Remix)

Video Premiere: The two music giants certainly landed a 'W' with this one.

Nigerian afropop heavyweight Wande Coal has teamed up with famed American rapper Wale for a remix of his hit track "Again," off of his newly released EP, Realms.

While "Again" has been around for a minute, there's nothing like dope visuals to get the fire burning again. And fans are on board. The hit single amassed over 30 millions streams, with a steady run on many African charts this year, and is sure to keep building on top of the already impressive accomplishments.

As is typical and unfortunate in our new world of socially distancing, the two weren't able to join forces and wardrobes for an epic collaborative video. Instead, Director Adasa Cookey's brilliance manifested itself into a short film.


Of the visuals, Cookey says, "The short film for Wande Coal's 'Again Remix' explores love, friendship and betrayal. The narrative for this piece was inspired by one of the strongest lines in the song, 'No mind them. Them dey lie to you. Them talk sey me I no good for you.' For me, the line hits on a subject that is often not discussed; the influence of friends on the outcome of relationships. In this case, that influence is made more powerful by jealousy and desperation."

Yikes. Well, if there's anyone who can put those feelings into words, it's Wande Coal. And Coal is undeniably excited about the remix, "It's great to work with an artist like Wale, and on a remix of one of my biggest records in 'Again,' no less. When Wale first hit the scene working with people like Lady Gaga and Rick Ross, it was a big inspiration for us in Nigeria to see a Nigerian rapper in the States having success at such a high level."
