Yemi Alade Has Cupid 'Taking Over Me' In New Visuals Featuring Phyno
Yemi Alade releases the dance-heavy visuals to her video for "Taking Over Me" featuring Phyno.
Yemi Alade is back alongside Igbo MC Phyno with the visuals to her fourth King of Queens single "Taking Over Me." The latest video from the Nigerian songstress follows her huge, hip-shaking singles from last summer "Johnny" and "Tangerine," which both featured production work from Triple MG's Selebobo. For "Taking Over You," Alade tapped producer GospelOnDeBeatz, who adds a continuous pulse to the singer's vocal melodies and Phyno's bars, playing with uptempo breakbeats and flirtatious rhythms. Directed by Taiye Aliyu & Justin Campos, the visuals take lyrical cues from the upbeat tone and style of the track. They feature Alade in dance and costume-heavy skits (complete with a belly dancing number) while she and Phyno, in matching prints, muse on their respective lovers' cupid-like chokehold. Watch Yemi Alade's video for "Taking Over Me," shot in South Africa and Nigeria, below and listen to her mash-up version of "Johnny" in Teck-Zilla's Afro Bootleg EP.
