Bantu, a songwriter-singer hailing from Zimbabwe, has just dropped his new massive record, ‘Leaving,’ along with a music video.
Performing alongside Dua Lipa, Diplo, and Lil Mosey, Bantu exclusively revealed his new single, ‘Leaving’, at FIFA 21’s World Premiere virtual show, which featured a star-studded line up of artists that feature on the games soundtrack. Now making its official release, Bantu drops the track and video for the infectious record.
“For this video, we wanted to make a one-take style video. Really paint the picture of that moment when your girl’s had enough and says she’s leaving, and you’re begging her to stay. It’s a fun, colorful, relatable video.”
“I wrote ‘Leaving’ with my friend and frequent collaborator, Johnny Yukon (Roddy Rich, Don Toliver, J Balvin, PartyNextDoor),” Bantu reveals. “The story for this song was inspired by the idea of losing somebody special. I think sometimes, we get complacent and only realize how much somebody means to us when they say they are out. So, the whole time in the song, I’m like, ‘Man, I was tripping, my bad, I’ve just been hustling and didn’t mean to hurt you.'”
