Yemi Alade Drops Vibrant New Video for “Vibe”

The music video queen is back with yet another visual delight from her latest album, Woman of Steel.

Yemi Alade, the Nigerian video queen, returns with a new visual for "Vibe." "It is the fifth track on her latest album, Woman of Steel, and, like the rest of the album, it presents a more liberated, more confident, no-holds-barred Alade. The album, she's said, "is all about drawing the inner strength that you have in you and being the superhero that you've always needed." In "Vibe" we hear the artist speaking on sexual liberation and coming to terms with the" vibe" of love she wants. This is just one more video in the incredible repertoire of the most watched Nigerian female artist, but it doesn't disappoint.

The video has some of Alade's signature moves: impeccable color coordination, vibrant sets, feel-good choreography and abundant smiles. "Vibe," directed by frequent video collaborator Ovie Etseyatse, shows Alade hanging out and dancing with friends—well-dressed, beautiful and incredibly talented dancer friends—as they alternate between settings while Alade professes the type of romance she's in the mood for. Stating she wants to "sit up on the mic" and "no time for the drama, nah I don't wanna be your baby mama." The song itself has an upbeat rhythm with a slow, easy build and occasionally sees Alade drifting into a bit of rapping.
