British singer Nao has released her fresh new single “Antidote” featuring Nigerian artist Adekunle Gold. The release of the single is accompanied by mesmerising visuals in which both Nao and Adekunle celebrate their beautiful baby daughters.
The infectious single follows Nao’s official 2018 album titled Saturn. According to DIY Mag, “Antidote” was conceptualised last year as a remedy to the COVID-19 lockdown. Coincidentally, both artists became parents to daughters last year. Nao explained that the loving lyrics are designed to uplift the heaviness that has been felt since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
The music video is both soft with deliberately wispy visuals creating a view of the world from a baby’s perspective where everything is new and impermanent. Scenes of Nao and Adekunle Gold affectionately cradling babies merge together creating an aesthetically surreal effect.
The video is genuinely adorable and sends out relaxing vibrations and overall good energy.
