Download : Runtown - Mad over you
Runtown’s Mad Over You is the song on everyone’s lips, and for all the right reasons. The song, released late in 2016 is a fine African export and that it still is getting massive airplay is credit to the beauty of the work.
Produced by Del’B, the track takes several leaves out of the Ghanaian ‘Alkayida’ sound and that is in fact to the credit of the artiste.
Runtown goes all out to produce soothing melody and it must have taken some work to successfully marry the Nigerian pop culture into the Ghanaian style. According to the man himself, ‘this song is very special to me because I really took my time to make it.’
The song is some notches above ‘Lagos to Kampala’ featuring Wizkid and the exotic ‘Tuwo Shinkafa’, which had an infusion of Moroccan delight. The mid-tempo flow coasts through you and sails around you, calling for slow, side to side body movements.
Runtown is a certified hitmaker and in Mad Over You, he has a song gunning for awards in the African clime.
The EricMany frontline act released a video to the song just before the end of 2016. The video, shot by Clarence Peters, complements the song with a similarly simple, yet beautiful set of visuals, beautiful African women displaying comely fashion pieces and body arts.
Mad Over You has every makings of a hit and award-winning single. It has fulfilled the former, pushing Runtown further up on the ratings of African artistes, and it is only a matter of time before it starts delivering on the latter part.
