Barely a week after releasing the audio of the melodious hit single ‘Come My Way‘, his first single of 2021 and first release since 2020’s Realms EP (Starstruck/EMPIRE), Afropop, Afrobeats, R&B superstar, Wande Coal releases correspondingly befitting visuals to this highly engaging tune.
Directed by Sesan and shot at White Deck Beach Resort, Abraham Adesanya, Lekki, Lagos, these visuals celebrate the infectious Afrobeats vibes with the throbbing digital pulse of South Africa’s exploding amapiano sound in a leafy suburban neighbourhood, with Wande, a bizarro picture of bliss, amidst all the activity around him. Styled in eye-popping outfits that complement the art direction of these visuals, this intentional artiste is a delight to watch as he delivers multi-octave performances defiantly promising not to let anyone get between him and his blessings. Africa’s number one vocalist and one of the best voices in the industry today, Wande is clearly that sauce that everyone needs to make their songs better.
The ‘Come My Way’ video follows the singer around unconventional corners and interesting places with meta moments where the camera focuses on captivating the brilliance of Wande in sound and movement as he traipses around in a sequence of enviable, made-to-measure looks by Deangelictouchstylist. The mingling of video art, projections, and high fashion neatly distill Wande’s eccentric style into a vivid blend of photography, nature, with no extras, just the black diamond in his natural element.
A clinic of delightful arrogance and swag, it’s hard to find fault with a music video entirely made up of enigmatic scenes of an artist with such mastery of his craft. These latest hypnotic visuals are an unabashed tribute to Wande’s confidence and determination in getting his blessings: “It’s a happy song, one of the easiest songs for me to make, to be honest. Come My Way is a simple song that talks about the blessings coming my way even through difficult times and this is something that speaks to me personally”.
