Bantu & Jonas Blue’s “Roll With Me” Video Is A Riot Of Sound & Color
“Roll With Me” is the banger that just won’t quit. First arriving in 2017, Bantu’s heady blend of African rhythms and big, bold pop hooks generated serious buzz. The bone-rattling bop eventually caught Jonas Blue’s attention and the UK producer recently released a club-friendly overhaul via his very own Blue Future label. That new version has amassed two million Spotify streams in less than a month, an impressive tally that will soar a lot higher with the arrival of a splashy video — complete with cameos from featured artists Shungudzo and ZieZie.
As with all of Bantu’s visuals, “Roll With Me” is a riot of color, culture and dance. The Zimbabwean artist/producer combines traditional dance with hip-hop bravado, palm trees and a little car racing. It’s a feast for the eyes and offers a pretty good introduction into the “Jackie Chan” hitmaker’s world. If you like what you see (and hear), be sure to check out the breakout star’s latest single, “Remedy,” as well as his excellent debut EP, Africa For The Summer. Watch “Roll With Me” up top.
