Ibeyi have debuted a music video for ‘Me Voy feat. Mala Rodriguez’, another song off their forthcoming album Ash, out Friday 29 September. Watch it below!
The video, directed by MANSON and produced by CANADA, stars Ibeyi and Mala Rodriguez. The song sees both Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé on vocals and includes Naomi’s signature bata’s interlaced with electronic percussion.
‘Me Voy’ is Ibeyi’s first song with lyrics entirely in Spanish. Ibeyi tapped rapper Mala Rodriguez to add a guest verse to the song which Lisa-Kaindé adds, “We needed to sing in Spanish to set a sensual tone for song. When women feel sensual, not only is it sexy, but really powerful and we set out to convey that in the music video.”
Ash was recorded in November 2016 in London with producer Richard Russell at his studio The Copper House. The album includes appearances from Kamasi Washington, Mala Rodriguez, Chilly Gonzales, Meshell Ndegeocello and is available for pre-order here.
