Chike features Oxlade on emotionally charged “Spell” remix
Nigerians Chike and Oxlade have joined forces to deliver an emotionally charged remix of Chike’s latest single, “Spell.”
The song is a continuation of Chike’s character development as an artiste, exploring conflicting emotions in love and relationships.
“Spell (Remix)” tells a story of the struggles one faces when trying to move forward in a relationship that is not conducive to personal growth. The lyrics are relatable, and the song’s instrumentation and arrangement, which include the piano and guitar, are carefully chosen to inspire Chike.
The video, directed by Pink of Pinkline Films, is a visual masterpiece that complements the song’s dreamy and trance-like qualities, according to a statement.
“The warm and sensual visuals are captivating, conveying themes of seduction, love, romance, and lust.
The song and video together create a simple yet intimate vision of the record, transporting the viewer to another place entirely.
“The message of the song is universal, as almost everyone has experienced a loss of control due to love, lust, attraction, or infatuation. Chike’s lyrics acknowledge this feeling, conveying emotions that are all too real,” the statement adds.
