If the video didn’t manage to stir up something in you, this live performance of “Believe” will get you there. Just as the official video, the live session was shot in Jamaica courtesy of director Thandi Sebe and Foresta, who is also the producer of the record.
At the first glimpse, the single feels like a love-situation type of song. However, the more in-depth you go with it the more you understand the metaphor of faith impersonated by Blu in his lyrics, metaphors and word-play that often appear in his music.
Perhaps new to the majority of the listeners, Blu’s partner for this release – Lila Ike – makes a great addition balancing the vibe of the single. She also laid vocals on Protoje‘s “Royalty Free” project for “Flight Plans”.
A full EP is expected from Royal Blu for spring next year, entirely produced by German producer Foresta.
