One of the leading singles in the run-up to Afrosoul and a firm favorite among listeners, Wayo gets given a visual treatment directed by Wurld himself and Baba Agba, befitting of its smooth texture. Taking on the aesthetic of a 1920’s jazz club with intricate contemporary twists as the video unfolds, WurlD indulges in a night of luxury, taking center stage as he performs to the sounds of soft, lilting saxophones and Afrocentric rhythms while captivated by the gaze of a mysterious woman.
Off the back of serious debut COLORS performance, Wayo is an exciting yet timeless vocal performance and display of innate musicality from the Afropop vanguard that, in conjunction with the entire Afrosoul project, reinforces the early promise and continued support from heavyweight tastemakers including the likes of The Fader.
With a blossoming international presence, Wurld continues to command a kind of gravitas that is impressive at this point in his career.
