Since the first time we heard Amaarae’s velvety voice on the song that became her breakout, “Whoa!”, the Ghanaian singer has remained consistently flirtatious. Though sex being the subject matter of songs commonplace in Africa’s dancefloor-driven music scene, very few artists manage to pull it off quite as convincingly Amaarae does. Her debut album, ‘The Angel You Know‘, which arrived last Thursday, is packed with lyrics that can make listeners blush as she narrates her sexcapedes with freewheeling confidence.

Now out with the music video for “Jumping Ship”, featuring Kojey Radical and Cruel Santino, Amaarae’s latest 3-minute-long clip offers another opportunity for her to flaunt her more sensual side, as she and her guest artists sing about the pleasures of new romance.
The blurb shared under the YouTube link for the video explains that “Jumping Ship” “is about leaving a current lover in pursuit of a new love interest.” The Rami Laudat-directed music video offers the perfect landscape for this with a dimly lit nightclub, where the three artists enjoy drinks, dancers, and other entertainment. While the blurry frames help capture the drowsy feeling of being drunk, Amaarae’s lustful voice paying explicit homage to female pleasure is what makes the exciting collaboration a sweaty toast to pop mastery.
