RICKY DIETZ is Pierre Baigorry and Jamaican-Canadian R&B singer Sway Clarke. Already a successful singer in Germany, Pierre joined forces with Sway – himself a hit songwriter for the likes of John Legend and Tinie Tempah – to create ‘Lemonade Drip’ – a danceable, soulful, Dancehall-tipped sound that Pierre and Sway would travel all the way to Lagos to perfect.
Teaming up with producers SARZ and Cracker Mallo, and Jr. Blender (Major Lazer ‘Lean On’), what has emerged is the kind of tongue-in-cheek cool that’s only cemented by the absolutely bonkers, genius video that makes perfect sense once you realise all of the names and styles involved.
Polished, insane and undoubtedly talented, Ricky Dietz have gone from hyper-local to transnational, and this debut release together with its stunning visuals, will make you dance, make no mistake. Watch here
