The video, directed by Denzel Williams and styled exclusively by Tommy Hilfiger in the TommyxLewis collection, is set in NYC with Stonebwoy and Keri playing the roles of casting directors for a beauty pageant.
Speaking on the collaboration, Keri explains:
I love the song we’ve done. I’ve always wanted to feel like this! Working with Stone was also a really nice surprise. It was random how we met & I think the best music is made like this.
It follows on from the single releases of ‘African Party’ an anthem to mark Ghana Independence Day on March 6th, ‘Understand’ featuring rising UK-based Jamaican dancehall artist Alicia Harley, and ‘Good Morning’ where he linked up with the Prince of Netherlands rap scene Chivv with Spanker on the production – all of which are featured on Anloga Junction.
The album itself is an extensive, 15-track release that features an array of collaborations with artists such as; Hilson, Harley, Kojo Antwi, Nasty C, Zlatan, Diamond Platnumz and Jahmiel.
While discussing the concept behind the album, Stonebwoy explains:
Where do we acknowledge our true roots and embrace our differences in the diaspora?… Why Anloga Junction?…because creativity has taken a spiritual cause on my journey to get to this present day…Anloga (Alakple, Volta, Ghana) is where this journey really started
