Watch Adekunle Gold's New Music Video for 'Before You Wake Up'

The Nigerian artist is back with a video for his romantic single "Before You Wake Up."

Adekunle Gold returns with a new music video for his latest single "Before You Wake Up," which dropped earlier this month.

The love song gets an equally romantic video, with an always smiling Adekunle Gold serenading a special lady in a number of vivid settings and showing his affection for her.

Later in the video the singer also shows off a couple dance moves with a group of friends, before he and his girl ride off together in an expensive car (because it couldn't really be a Nigerian music video without one, could it?) The music video was directed by Foreign Made.

The Sess-produced track is a fitting follow up to the artist's single "Promise," a collaboration with his wife and fellow Nigerian artist Simi, which dropped at the top of the year and beautifully documented their union. Revisit the track here, and check out our interview with the artist from last year about his quest to make timeless music.
