Shirazee – RIGHT THANG feat. Busiswa – Exclusive Video Premiere
If you don’t already know Shirazee, odds are you’re about to see and hear him everywhere.
The charismatic Afropop artist brings a vibrant, new and needed sparkle to the music scene with his eclectic, exuberant genre-bending tunes. Odds are, you’ll be singing and dancing along in no time. With a new EP, LOST, out 23rd October, the ultra-talented singer’s latest music video for current single ‘RIGHT THANG’ is exclusively premiering today with 1883 Magazine. The bouncy, upbeat song features South African singer-songwriter and poet Busiswa who has collaborated with the likes of Beyoncé, for starters.
The electric collaboration came together organically, according to Shirazee and Busiswa, as a result of their authentic, positive energy in the studio. Directed by Modern Day Auteur, the video is self-shot, and spans continents, taking us on a journey and offering viewers a glimpse into both artists’ lives in the Bronx, New York, and Johannesburg, South Africa.
Duetting on a split-screen, with a few cheeky interactions and eventual meetups, the video follows parallel storylines as both artists go throughout their daily routines; the song is the perfect anthemic accompaniment to their joyous on-screen energy. The video makes the most of COVID-19 travel restrictions, as both Shirazee and Busiswa amplify their individual surroundings. From singing in taxi cabs to dancing in city streets, sprinkler-laden backyards, and living room couches, the ‘RIGHT THANG’ music video shows off a wonderful sense of shared connectivity that inherently brightens an already fun song.
