Renowned pro­du­cer, sing­er and song­writer Blaq Jerzee has just released his new single ‘Right Here’ fea­tur­ing the hotly tipped, next to blow Ghanian artist Gyakie.

Join­ing a choir at 13 is where his suc­cess star­ted. Blaq Jerzee was enlightened by his pas­sion for music and soon became inter­ested in sound pro­duc­tion. Over the years the award-win­ning Nigeri­an artist has developed a weighty port­fo­lio to gloat about. Blaq Jerzee has pro­duced mul­tiple hit singles includ­ing ‘Ari­zona’, ‘Blow’ and ‘Thank­ful’, as well as releases with top artists Wizkid and Tiwa Sav­age.

Grow­ing up with Nana Acheam­pong as your fath­er, Gyakie was bound to make a career in music. The unique­ness of her sound is influ­enced by the Soul era of Asa and Oman Ster­ling of R2Bees.

In Feb­ru­ary 2019, the Afro-Soul/A­fro Fusion sing­er released her first single “Love is Pretty” and has now accu­mu­lated over 30 mil­lion views col­lect­ively on You­Tube. One of her more recent tracks “Forever” and “Forever Remix” has gained over 30 mil­lion cumu­lat­ive audio streams, as well as 1.6 cumu­lat­ive Shazams and peaked #4 on the Trill­er Bill­board Glob­al Chart.

The euphor­ic Afrobeat love song show­cases the two stars’ indi­vidu­al style of Afro-Soul and Afro Fusion into one bind­ing melody. The track demon­strates a power­ful mes­sage from the heart, a moment all rela­tion­ships exper­i­ence the ter­rit­ory of ‘flaws’. The pair tell the story of a love tale about self-aware­ness, intim­acy and imper­fec­tions.

The video is staged at a cast­ing, cap­tur­ing Gyakie, Blaq Jerzee and both a male and female act­or dis­play­ing their flaws. The visu­als fall into place with the lyr­ics and melody of the song. Viol­in samples are fea­tured through­out the song which round out the rhythmic found­a­tion, as well as being a key part of the video.

Blaq Jerzee and Gyakie proved a uni­fied coher­ence with this track bound to get you in your feel­ings.
