One of the critiques often levelled at veteran rapper M.I Abaga, is the lack of visuals to accompany a significant portion of his sprawling discography. Last year, he released two full-length projects, releasing just one music video for “Lekki” off the ‘Rendezvous’ playlist, in the process. Calling back to the February 2018 release, M.I has just shared the music video for the Nonso Amadi-assisted “Playlist”, the project’s third track.
Performing a charmed set, both artists take turns professing their affection and more carnal intentions to their love interests, delivering breezy melodies over the summery chords and mid-tempo, steel pan Afro-Caribbean drums Nonso produces. Showcasing the song’s easy listening disposition, and its apt fit for summertime playlists, the music video for “Playlist” is a jovial collection of sun-baked shots, featuring frames of the song’s main muse sashaying around in a sparsely furnished, destination apartment, while M.I performs his lyrics while driving around, solo and then in the model’s company.
Watch the video for M.I Abaga and Nonso Amadi’s “Playlist” below.
