Crystal Asige x Nairobi Horns Project – Straight No Chaser (Official Video)
Moving from strength to strength, the afro soul singer and songwriter Crystal Asige (@crystalasige) sneaks in a fierce end of year single with a seasoned horn section, unapologetically titled “Straight No Chaser”.
The single talks about how on the surface a relationship may look beautiful and endless, but underneath that, the ground has grown cold and lifeless, and it becomes clear to the girl that boy isn’t who he says he is.
Collaborating with East Africa’s unmatched band Nairobi Horns Project (@nairobihorns), Crystal Asige’s sassy and fiery Swahili lyrics in the single, “I’ve held my tongue for long enough, I’m tired of pushing you to love. If you want to stay play your role, if you want to go you can go”, is a narrative that many women know all too well, Miss Asige says.
Both tragic and liberating, this exquisitely infused chakacha and jazz piece become an end of 2020 anthem for audiences to look that somebody right in the eye and gives it to them ‘Straight No Chaser!’
With none other than the versatile Music Video Director Vinstinct (@vinstinct), these trailblazing independent artists in the music industry team up again to raise the bar even higher.
“To be honest, people are yet to truly understand how creative Crystal is. The last two videos we have worked on together have just been the tip of the iceberg”, teases Vinstinct. “It was really important to me that the music video celebrates diversity, her love for theatre, and her Wafuasi family too,” he added.
