Watch Maleek Berry's New Carnival-Inspired Music Video for 'Gimme Life'

Maleek Berry returns with a vibrant new video for his latest single.

The last time we heard from Maleek Berry, he had just released his EP First Daze of Winter.

Now, the Nigerian afrobeats star is back with his latest single "Gimme Life."The music video sees Maleek in a colorful, carnival-inspired setting, surrounded by women with intricate head pieces and various flags. Everyone appears to be having a really great time in the Director Labi-produced video, especially Maleek as he vibes and hits the shaku a couple of times throughout the video.

On the song, which was self-produced by Maleek, he sings about a partner who—you guessed it—gives him life when she dances. It's a departure from his previous singles about love and heartbreak like "Pon My Mind" and "Calling," but catchy nonetheless.

Watch the music video for "Gimme Life" below.
