Crystal Asige debuted her new offering a few days ago, a collaboration between herself and Nairobi Horns Projects dubbed ‘Straight No Chaser’ – The groovy love-themed Mackinlay Mutsembi produced track blends great beats with the singer’s powerful voice.
Shining a light on the reality of many relationships, how impeccable they may seem on the outside yet they are full of challenges. Sang in Swahili (the love language forget about french) I mean every lyric in this song can be heard with your heart.
The horns in the track add an extra Jazzy feel to the song, something the Nairobi native group has perfected as part of their commitment to building a sound around horns in African and contemporary music.
The track not only features visuals shot across different locations in Nairobi highlighting various forms of art from theatre where Crystal is seen performing to the popular African beads and carvings. Did I mention the video also features one of our favorite artist and photographer – Sogalo, just to add that extra diversity in industry, because why not?
Available across all major streaming platforms. Watch ‘Straight No Chaser’ below, enjoy.
