Apolo Imon reveals his dynamic nature once again with this sultry new dancehall ode ‘Get Paid’ produced by Kuvie, directed by the renowned, J Willz. Stream here.
We experience the versatile nature of this young outstanding artist as he merges a unique flow with a traditional yet, simply controversial instrumental to give us this mid-tempo, tropical anthem. A money anthem if you may, Apolo sings in his uniquely lazy yet powerful vocals, speaking about the essence of ”getting paid” in this money-driven society, however, he lays more emphasis on how moderation is key with the mantra ”too cool ah too cool I no like am, too hot ah too hot I no like am….”.
I must say, a genius track this is considering the simplicity yet provoking nature of the song. Imon has been rumored to be working on two albums for the coming year and supposedly has a stream of new singles coming our way. ‘Get Paid’ being one of them sets a standard we believe he continues to beat and renew. ‘Get Paid’ video, features La Même Gang member, $pacely, entertainment guru & connoisseur, Shalala, Kuvie and others premieres alongside the audio.
An exciting time to be in the African Music scene and I think Apolo Imon has all it takes to transcend the current musical ideologies surrounding how an African musician should make African music.
