WurlD Releases Stunning Visuals For ‘Story’

Watch WurlD's stunning visuals for 'Story'.

WurlD has officially released visuals for his latest single "Story" from the Nigerian Afro soul singer's latest EP Afrosoul. "Story" is the second visual masterpiece by WurlD this year, as in April he released a James Bond-inspired music video for "Love Nobody". WurlD's second time at co-directing is toned down but makes for a riveting watch.

The "Story" music video is toned with the magnificent blue colour which WurlD the blue-haired singer is known for. In the song, he laments unrequited love to a winged beautiful woman, and throughout the video, the woman in question does not seem to connect with WurlD. Her stunning stature and magical look capture the essence of the video.

Donning a diamond encrusted mask that only shows her eyes, the winged woman dances in sync with WurlD. The video, just like the song, speaks to matters of the heart and its simplicity magnifies Wurld's soft vocals over dance beats.

WurlD's "Story" sparks images reminiscent of Kanye West's "Runaway", touching on the turmoil of letting go of someone you love and ultimately, that love cannot be caged. A die-hard romantic and poetic in his performances, WurlD's telling of "Story" is simpler because of the bare set yet powerful because of the majestic blue colour palette on his hair and on the wings of the woman.

"Story" is directed by Baba Agba and WurlD.
