Producer/singer Kai Exos today releases his second single of 2020 and accompanying music video “Broad Beans”. “Broad Beans” was released through VMP Music, an independent label and publisher; the song was co-produced by Kai Exos & Keyel Walker (WS Boogie, Jhené Aiko) and mixed by David Nakaji (BTS, Amine, Kendrick Lamar).
“Broad Beans” is a track that pays homage to his maternal lineage’s — a yearning that undoubtedly resonates with fans and simultaneously transcends culture. The essence of “Broad Beans” is a fine sample of Kai’s broader mission of uniting people across the world.
Kai Exos, who in addition to writing and producing the track, also directed, edited, and produced the music video shares, “There’s a lot to read into the lyrics, but it comes down to loving and supporting our people. I was super inspired by a Cleo Wade piece called ‘rooting for each other’ that was the seed of the concept. Reminds me of so much of my Aunties.”
The video follows the tone of the song weaving together images of urban city life, including kids on bikes, people cooking outside and shots of neighborhood stores. These images perfectly encapsulate the song’s sentimental concepts. The laid back feel succeeds in communicating a day in the life of Kai’s formative years.
Kai’s new album is out on pre-order today and showcases his power to intoxicate us with his refreshing approach to all things musical. Consisting of easy-to-vibe-to grooves in Sci-Fi, upbeat and carefree We Don’t Care, brutally honest Blessed to fantasy-like Big Dreams, the album provides a snippet of the many ways Kai is able to layer creative melodies with his spectacular voice.
