Rob Ulitski - 18th Sept 2019

Coming off the back of Meji Alabi’s recent Pull Up video comes his next Burna Boy video - and a collaboration with Jorja Smith on Gum Body. 

The understated performances and a straightforward narrative make this an easy watch, chilled and relaxed to match the vibe of the track - taken from Burna’s new album African Giant

The intermittent dance scenes drive the video forward with great energy, and the ghosting effects on the exteriors lend a slightly surreal 90s edge to the project.
