Girl Next Door | Sauti Sol Links Up With Afropop Sweetheart Tiwa savage For The Mid Tempo Track Produced By Maleek Berry
Kenyan afro-pop group, Sauti Sol are starting the year on a very high note. The group dropped their second track titled “Girl Next Door” off their Afrikan sauce album.
“Girl Next Door” is blessed with a feature from afropop sweetheart, Tiwa Savage.
Tiwa’s presence undeniably elevates the track to another level. 2017 was definitely her return to form — from her acclaimed EP to her impressive features — and her work on this song is no different. She absolutely kills it.
Produced by the talented Maleek Berry, the mid-tempo track is a totally infectious love song. On the adorably cheesy track, Sauti Sol and Tiwa Savage sing about the feeling of finding love that has been right under your nose all along — in this case, falling for the boy or girl next door.
The music video — which was shot by Unlimited LA — isn’t quite as memorable as the video for “Melanin”, but it’s still stunning. It follows Sauti Sol’s Bien-Aimé Baraz and Tiwa Savage as they spend a big chunk of the video flirting from a distance.
