Hitpapa takes inspiration from the likes of Michael Jackson, Trey Songz, and Wizkid, and blends it with the flavour of Nigeria in his new single, ‘I’ll Be There’, which also features Emtee.
With a sun-drenched summer sound, ‘I’ll Be There’ fully captures Hitpapa’s talent of self-expression, as well as the heart of Afrobeats. The easy-flowing lyrics are set to tropical West African drumbeats, and before you know it, you’ll be caught up in the rhythm, swaying like a tall tropical tree. Emtee, one of the most respected African artists, fits perfectly with Hitpapa’s sound, blending seamlessly with heat and intensity. The song, about being ready for a good time, and seizing the day – pairs beautifully with the sultry music video, showing Hitpapa and Emtee in a penthouse suite, pre-gaming for a memorable night, surrounded by beautiful models. If you want a video that positively oozes sexiness, you can’t go far past the clip for ‘I’ll Be There’.
