L.A.X features Moet Abebe for his “Specially” music video

Raising the stake on the sultry themed music video aesthetic

Afropop artists recognize romance as a sure bridge between the genre’s dancefloor driven direction and their more reflective intentions. “Specially” off L.A.X’s debut album, ‘Rasaking’, highlights the singer’s emotional side, layering vulnerable lyrics over a groovy mid-tempo beat Clemzy produces. Though the heartwarming video the song inspires has a sultry, romantic style that has been done over and over and never seems to get old, L.A.X raises the stake by opening the music video with his captivating display of cooking skills and serving his lover breakfast in bed.

Mr Movies directs the romantic set for the video for “Specially”, showing L.A.X and Soundcity OAP, Moet Abebe, playing lovers in the 3-minute long clip. Though the dreamy mood is cut short when she finds a message on his phone that questions his faithfulness, his sultry vocals keeps things passionate till he’s able to apologize and even ask her out on a date where he proposes. With the gorgeously shot clip, highlighting L.A.X’s charming charisma, “Specially” could be the sleeper hit track from the project.
