In a year already loaded with releases from Afrobeats heavyweights, it's safe to say that Kwamz & Flava have one of the biggest Afrobeats songs of the summer on their hands with ‘Take Over’, and is one of their best songs to date.
Since its debut in January, the song has racked up over 3 million hits on YouTube, inspiring fans to upload their own dance versions making it a viral sensation.
Kwamz & Flava first met in school and quickly became friends, their passion for music and their Ghanaian heritage has joined them at the hip. The pair have since then gained a huge buzz with ‘Take Over’ and even recently signed to Black Butter Records, home to Rudimental, J Hus, Wiley, DJ Khaled, Kent Jones and more to mention a few.
The accompanying visuals was directed by Geoff Levy and is a vibrant three minutes of Afro infused heart racing dance routines on the colourful streets of New York. Choreographed by Tanisha Scott, who has worked with Sean Paul, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Drake and more, the result is a perfect blend of African and Hip-Hop dance styles to Afrobeats.
"There is a huge appetite for African music and we are so proud to be apart of this movement", says Kwamz. Flava went onto add "we love that we can fuse our British and African upbringing together in our music. ‘Take Over’ is such a feel good track, and we hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do."
