King Riley Gives Us Some ‘Substance’ With His Latest Release

King Riley is making big waves in the music industry, and his latest release, ‘Substance’ brings an uncommon culture and richness to the mainstream.

In a love ballad that flows seamlessly, King Riley sings about how ‘Substance’ is what makes a relationship truly beautiful. The aesthetic of the music video is the perfect match for the tropical beat of the song, and we see King Riley and his lady love walking through a gorgeous garden. The artist connects his two worlds, by switching between English and Nigerian Pidgin; at first the two would seem vastly different, but in his hands and by way of the power of his music he’s shown that it has something for everyone.

You can check out King Riley’s video for ‘Substance’ below and find out more about the man himself online on Twitter, and Instagram.
