Rising UK rapper Ikes is back with his brand-new single “Clarity”, featuring vocals from singer-songwriter Hayley Cassidy. The track features production from oneBlackRussian and additional production and mixing from Edward Nixon, the chief engineer for Grammy Award-winning production team J.U.S.T.I.C.E League (Drake, Chris Brown, Nas). Watch the video here.
After already being playlisted as a BBC Introducing track, Ikes has now unveiled the official video, which was directed by Ashleigh Jadee (Big Sean, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora) and conveys the message of the song in which Ikes talks about seeking clarity on a turbulent relationship. He explains, “I think everyone can relate to this song on some level. We’ve all been in that place where you start seeing someone and then a little down the line you’re wondering where you both stand. The guy may want to avoid putting a title on things, but that leaves the woman really lost. Where’s the clarity?”
With new material already in the works, Ikes is definitely one to watch out for in 2016 if this new offering is anything to go by. To keep up to date with the latest news, follow him on social media below.
