It’s a glorious Thursday. New Ekali is here! The genre-bending artist teams-up with the always-impressive, Wafia, to tell a tale of heartbreak on Ekali’s second single off his upcoming album titled “Be Fine”.
Ekali weaves together a shimmering production that radiates an intoxicating warmth and a delicate strength that pulls listeners into the heartbreak that is the linchpin of “Be Fine”. His production stays relatively minimalist to allow the angelic vocals of Wafia to dance around the soul of the listener and ensnare them with poignant vibrancy.
The release also includes an accompanying music video that features both Ekali and Wafia. True to the nature of “Be Fine”, the video has an emotional ambiance constructed with intricate coloring and precise lighting. Overall, the video further develops the story and constructs a melancholy feel that will resonate with viewers.
“Be Fine” is just a small taste of the upcoming Ekali album, but it grows our insatiable anticipation for the full LP. With features from Illenium, Au/Ra, Kiiara, and Nitti Gritti it’s sure to be a momentous release that will send waves through the dance world. If that’s not enough, there is an upcoming Wafia album due out in 2020 through Atlantic.
