With his latest single Ose surpassing the million streams mark across Spotify, YouTube and Soundcloud in just three months, along with support from the likes of Spotify, BBC 1Xtra, Rinse FM and Beats 1/Apple Music among others, exciting 20-year-old afrobeat artist, SK, is back with a brand new single, Dat Way, and its video.
Directed by Chas Appeti who has previously worked with Ghetts, Maverick Sabre, Lethal Bizzle, Fekky and Kojo Funds, DW was shot against the breathtaking scenery and landscapes of Margate in Kent, and it captures SK serenading his leading lady with lines that are sure to be fan favourites such as ‘baby, let’s fly away, let’s do this thing our way, girl dat way yeah.’
With every new offering from SK, the fast-rising London-based artist continues to highlight his growing musicianship, craftmanship, glorious vocals, infectious songwriting skills, star power, and performance prowess.
On the Saucy-produced DW and its visuals, he shifts gears yet again and takes things up another notch as he carves his own lane within the afrobeat landscape.
Speaking about DW’s inspiration, he said, “The song is about flying away with the person you love. Dat Way is the life story of young African love – growing up together, having plans of setting a foundation and building a home with each other. The instrumentation made me think about escaping with a special someone and growing in love with them. I hope lovers can relate to this one.”
