New Music Video “POUNDS & DOLLARS” by Yemi Alade and Phyno.
Award winning multi-talented singer, Yemi Alade teams up with rapper Phyno for ‘Pounds & Dollars‘ which was released last year, 2022. Today February 3rd, 2023, the duo link up again to drop Pounds & Dollars Official Music Video, Directed by Clarence Peters. This song is a track taken from Yemi Alade’s ‘African Baddie’ EP.
When Yemi released her acclaimed 2014 debut album, King of Queens, the versatility of her music and unbounded nature of her pan-African spirit became clear. Subsequent releases from the Abia, Nigeria-born artist would carry this essence, with collaborations featuring names like Angelique Kidjo, Beyoncé, Sarkodie, Awilo Longomba, Mi Casa and more.
Those factors continue to ring true in 2022 with her eighth studio project, African Baddie. The collection (10 track EP) journeys across the continent and its diaspora, navigating dancehall, Afropop and highlife with audacious tracks sung in English, French and Pidgin alongside an all-star guest list.
Assisted by British Nigerian singer Lemar, “Get Down” plays on Kool & the Gang’s “Get Down on It” with brief interpolations of Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’”, and sets the tone for the project—an all-around light-hearted expression of love, warmth and self-assurance. On “Dje Dje”, Alade and French singer Bramsito call for clarity from their love interest over midtempo production. Alade kicks up the gear with the energetic, percussion-laden “Ikebe”, featuring Zlatan, while “Bubble It” pairs Alade with Jamaican dancehall queen Spice.
“POUNDS & DOLLARS” is the EP’s opener. On this track, Yemi Alade and Phyno sings about how God and Hard-work (consistency) help they overcome obstacles & critics. Listen and Get below;
