Watch the music video for “50/50” by Rose May Alaba and Mayorkun

An alley-hoop of dance music influences

Though Caribbean music has grown to global prominence, few Afropop songs have embrace the glossy sound of Caribbean pop as wholeheartedly as Rose May Alaba’s “50/50” featuring Mayorkun. After scoring several hits in Austria and writing the theme song of the 2017 Special Olympic World Winter Games, Rose May Alaba has the exposure foreign artists leverage for respect but she turns to Mayorkun for an inspiring blend of dance music influences.

Kiddominant’s masterful mix of ambient Caribbean harmonies with EDM nuances serve as the backdrop for the sultry sets from Rose May Alaba and Mayorkun as they balance the dance-driven melodies with biting lyrics about romantic relationships. The music video Sesan direct however focuses on the dance, casting dancers to perform along with Rose May Alaba and Mayorkun.
