Watch: Shatta Wale Breaks The Country Rules With Gringo
Shatta Wale out with 'Gringo' official music video which is the first single off his upcoming album titled "The Reign". Music video directed by Sesan.
The trailer for ‘Gringo’ was enough to trigger your appetite for the full music video. Shatta Wale has finally unleashed the official music video for his song ‘Gringo’ off “The Reign” album scheduled for release this year. This music video literally breaks the “Country” rules using “Dancehall”. Texas is known for their Country Music and hard to find powerful black people during those times.
But here comes El Shatta breaking the rules with ‘Gringo’ and eventually overtaking the law. According to the script, El Shatta wins the heart of a corrupt sheriff’s girlfriend. Snake eye (Name of the corrupt Sheriff) seem to be the big shot in Texas… He is the law and somehow above the law.
What I see in the music video is way bigger knowing the story of Shatta Wale as Charles Nii Armah Mensah and as a Dancehall artiste. His “Attitude” which seem to irritate almost everyone took him to places and Gringo simply depicts his dominance in the world and making Dancehall shine even at places where Dancehall isn’t the order of the day.
Making this the first single off his upcoming album, says a lot about the album and I just can’t wait to review his début Album under Zylofon Music. Sesan of Nigeria did great with the directing and those beautiful gunshot effects. Clean and colour rich pictures, perfect environment, and an outstanding story-line. Can we take the risk making a Ghanaian director do one of these? Let’s leave that for the future. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Future in the Past! Download on Apple Music
