After cutting the sweet impression of a lover on her “Ba Mi Lo” collaboration with Reekado Banks, Tolani returns with a new single, this time, taking the role of a lover who has had enough of the lies from an unfaithful ex. Just as the “Liar” title suggests, she calls out the inconsistency in his stories with spiteful lyrics that aren’t numbed by her melodious performance over the catchy mid-tempo beat E Kelly produces.
The music video Berat Tunc directs sticks to the venomous tone of the song’s lyrics as we watch Tolani perform the song, backed by other women who mime to the lyrics with a pained expression that suggests they’ve also been with similarly dishonest lovers. The video highlights the empowering quality of Tolani’s lyrics while also showing an extreme instance of the consequence for lying as the video ends with Tolani locking a tied up man in the bonnet of a car.
You can watch the video for “Liar” below.
