Shakka‘s tribal-licked EP, The Lost Boys, was one of the finest R&B offerings of 2015. Riff, runs and real talk, lead track “Say Nada” was instrumental in him picking up the gong for Best R&B/Soul act at last year’s MOBO Awards, catapulting him almost immediately to the forefront of the urban music arena. Following the Jme remix video of said track, today, Shakka brings us an African-inspired visual for “You Don’t Know What You Do To Me”, which features an addition verse from grime star Chip.
“This song talks about infatuation with a girl from the perspective of an average guy,” says Shakka over email. “No bravado, no crotch holding, or testosterone-driven confidence. He’s never seen a being like this before. And in the world of the Lost Boys, the characters have never encountered women. I thought it fitting to shoot a video that was simply about the boy, the girl, and the music. It’s like someone once said: ‘Beauty doesn’t ask for attention.”’
