Tiwa Savage – Tales By Moonlight ft Amaarae [ViDeo]
This Tales By Moonlight video is coming in after the success of Somebody’s Son video, performed by Tiwa Savage and Brandy. Released 2 months ago and has over 13 Million views on YouTube.
As a follow-up to her acclaimed third album, 2020’s Celia, Water & Garri EP unifies Tiwa Savage’s global influences—gleaned from spending primary years in Lagos, teenage years in London and attending university in the US—into a collage of R&B, Afrobeats and pop.
Named after the staple cassava dish that’s enjoyed hot or cold, and released in two parts, Water & Garri mashes together sounds and styles with global collaborators and her own heartfelt style. On “Somebody’s Son”, she ruminates on a love to come alongside US singer Brandy, while on “Tales by Moonlight” she links up with Ghanaian singer Amaarae on a flirtatious jaunt pairing elements of soulful ’90s house with African rhythms. This half of the two-part EP also loops in the talents of Nas and Rich King (“Work Fada”) and Tay Iwar (“Special Kinda”).
This is an alternative record with an addictive sound. The Afro-fusion record is very nostalgic. It brings memories of yesteryear as well as the blend in of the new wavy (heard as Amaarae verse came in). It’s a song about not being sure of the true intentions of a potential lover. The vocals and Afrobeat rhythm of this Cracker-Mallo-produced song creates a mood that you can’t explain. No matter how long you repeat this record, you just get a good feeling about it. This is one of the exceptional records on the EP and another proof that Tiwa Savage can make good music.
The music video was directed by Meji Alabi.
