Watch DELLA$IE's Fierce Music Video for Her New Song 'Chop Life'

The Ghanaian afrobeats artist gives us a much needed reminder to live and enjoy life.

Ghana's own DELLA$IE will help you kick off your Friday with her new music video, "Chop Life."

In the stripped down, percussion-heavy track, DELLA$IE gives us a reminder we all need through a popular pidgin phrase to live life to the fullest.

"'Chop Life' is a West African pidgin term which essentially means 'to live life and enjoy yourself.' The 'Chop Life' visual includes themes of love and afro-futurism. I was really inspired by the 'Black Panther' film and there are some subtle references to it in the visual," DELLA$IE says.


She continues:

"I had the amazing opportunity to partner with Youtube Space in NYC where we produced and edited the project. There are quite a few themes, but I like the viewers to enjoy their own interpretation. I'm so proud to be one of the many contemporary African artists changing the perception of African culture and all of our diverse experiences. Visibility matters. And as the late, great Fela once said—MUSIC IS THE WEAPON!"

Watch DELLA$IE's music video for "Chop Life" below.
