Love Potion, the 3rd single off Muthoni Drummer Queen upcoming album, brings about a much anticipated collaboration between Muthoni and long time friends and Kenyan superstars Sauti Sol. This infectious dancehall, R&B infused track was written by the collaborators in 2018/19 and produced by Swiss producer combo “GR” and “Hook” as part of the their 3rd collaborative studio project (and the 4th for Muthoni).
Watch ‘Love Potion’ below.
“This song has such a vibe! Initially I had the melody, verses and chorus but GR was not that convinced with the 2nd verse, so we thought to bring the skeleton to Sauti Sol and see if they could help re-work the track. Bien, Savara and Polycarp immediately thought we could develop other verses, so we kept one segment of the verse and chorus and started the writing again. After we were done, we all loved the track except Bien!
So we started to make another song in Feb 2019, but a few months later, we circled back to the track during the 1st round of shortlisting for the album and Bien suddenly loved the song again! So we completed the song and Polycarp did some additional production and we shot the video immediately before anyone could change their mind again. Lol. I’m glad it worked out though, we all really love the song!” says Muthoni.
The song is paired with visuals to match directed by Ivan Odi and we couldn’t love this song or video more. Enjoy! Share!
