See R2Bees, Efya in “Could This Be Love” music video

But it's not the cliche love-fest you imagine it'll be

R2Bees and Efya’s new single, “Could This Be Love” captures the gloomy sentiment of doomed romance. Their somber vocals are heightened by the looped percussion harmonies and mellow drum riffs as they question the intentions of their romantic partners. Though Paedae, one of the R2Bees duo, hints at the damaging effects of breakups on his mental health, there’s an unmistakable sense of hope for love heard through all three verse; “Please De’Here Cause You’re A Keeper”. The Babs directed video mirrors some of this ambivalence, as we watch slow-motion shots of Mugeez and Efya playing basketball on a bright and sunny day, while Paedae sits at home with a love interest.
