OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Jae5, a renowned Ghanaian music producer based in the United Kingdom, has ventured into singing.
Jae5 who was one of the producers on Burna Boy's Twice As Tall album which won at the 63rd Grammy Awards has released his first single.
The debut single of Jae5 which has been titled Dimension features British rapper Skepta and Nigerian singer Rema.
Both the audio and visuals from Jae5's song have been released on Friday, March 19, 2021.
The super-producer paid homage to his roots as a Ghanaian by filming the music video in the West African country.
Giving a culturally rich (literally and metaphorically, as the opening scene shows a hand adorned with gold) and modern portrayal of the West-African country, Jae5 gives fans a glimpse into its colourful and ornate heritage, customs and vast landscapes.
Also proving to be a tale of two halves, the visuals offer a modern portrayal of Africa – it’s rise as a hub for creativity and self-expression of its youth, whilst holding on to traditional values and norms by showing elders in customary wear and women donning regional hairstyles.
Infused with Jae5’s signature afro-infused melody, the track is further enriched by Rema’s smooth vocals in the chorus, “the place where I come from be another dimension/nobody be look my face when I'm there on my own”, and Skepta’s effortless flow – where he provides two powerful verses."
Speaking on the track Jae5 states:
“For my first single, I wanted to pull off something that represented me well. It had to be heavily influenced by Afrobeats and the UK urban scene. Skepta & Rema are the perfect combinations. Dimension is a meaningful track with a vibe! Skepta as always delivers the maddest verse and Rema on the hook - that guy just isn't normal! I hope everyone enjoys the track.”
