On his latest single, “Young Love”, Adekunle Gold captured the feeling of being in the honeymoon stage of a romantic relationship. While his lyrics touch on dreamy sentiments, the song is grounded by a lived-in reality, with an admittance that it won’t always be rosy. “Although this is young love, don’t ever leave my side”, he gently asks of his love interest, over bouncy pop beat.
Updating the single, he’s just shared the music video, and while it doesn’t necessarily follow the song’s narrative arch, it displays the its feel-good qualities. Split between day and night, the video shows Adekunle Gold singing his lyrics while vibrantly moving across a walkway, before ending at a hangout spot where he is joined by men and women dancers for a set of choreographed and sensual moves.
