JAE5 is regarded as one of the Ghanaian UK based most coveted producers and his recent GRAMMY win (for production on Burna Boy’s ‘Twice as Tall’ album) is proof of that! Today, he releases the track and visuals to his debut single ‘Dimension’ Ft. Skepta & Rema
Paying homage to his home country of Ghana where the visuals were shot, the producer teamed up with British rapper Skepta and Nigerian Afro-trap artist Rema to release a single that embodies all that the famed producer stands for.
Giving a culturally rich (literally and metaphorically, as the opening scene shows a hand adorned with gold) and modern portrayal of the West-African country, JAE5 gives fans a glimpse into its colourful and ornate heritage, customs and vast landscapes.
Also proving to be a tale of two halves, the visuals offer a modern portrayal of Africa – it’s rise as a hub for creativity and self-expression of its youth, whilst holding on to traditional values and norms by showing elders in customary wear and women donning regional hairstyles. Infused with JAE5’s signature afro-infused melody, the track is further enriched by Rema’s smooth vocals in the chorus,
“the place where I come from be another dimension / nobody be look my face when I’m there on my own”, and Skepta’s effortless flow – where he provides two powerful verses.
