Ibeyi released a music video for new song ‘I Wanna Be Like You’, off their album Ash, out today. The video, which stars twins, Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz, was shot in France and directed by Remi Besse and produced by Standard Films. Watch it below!
Lisa-Kaindé wrote the track for Naomi – her twin by nature but opposite in reality. Lisa-Kaindé explains further, “Sometimes I want to be like Naomi. I want her eyes, to feel the rhythm as deeply as she does, to dance like her, to be as wild as she is; sometimes I just want to be her for even just a few seconds.”
Ash, the follow-up to self-titled debut album (2015), is a more visceral and potent political statement, firmly rooted in Afro-Cuban culture and history and finds itself entirely concerned with Ibeyi’s present. The twelve track album includes appearances from Kamasi Washington, Mala Rodriguez, Chilly Gonzales, Meshell Ndegeocello.
