Yemi Alade 'Tangerine'

Nigeria's Yemi Alade follows up 'Johnny' with the video for 'Tangerine,' off her forthcoming debut album 'King of Queens.'


Nigeria's Yemi Alade has picked up massive steam since the release of her “Bust Your Windows”-esque anti-cheaters dance anthem "Johnny." Linking with Triple MG producer Selebobo once more, Alade's latest hip shaker "Tangerine" serves as the follow-up to her viral breakthrough. In a sassy new offering from Naija video vet Clarence Peters, the "King of Queens" struts her stuff as she sings of that fresh, sweet, zangy "tangerine" type love. Alade's debut album King of Queens is set to arrive later this year. Until then watch the video for the LP's second single below.
