It looks like Bad Gyal has had a wild summer. After appearing at this month’s Wireless Festival, the Barcelona singer spent a couple of days enjoying London’s heatwave to film a new music video for ‘Mas Raro’, a love letter to the UK’s afroswing sound produced by one of London’s finest, Cadenza.
“I met Cadenza because I worked with his brother, Jamie, before,” Bad Gyal tells FACT.
“These last two months I’ve been in London a lot for shows and other things, so I thought it’d be cool to link up for a studio session. We linked up one day and started this tune – we thought it was a banger so the next time I came to London, we needed to finish it as fast as possible.”
“We had a really good connection in the studio – we both like to work really fast. We finished the track and knew it was a song for summer, so we filmed the video quickly and dropped it almost right away. We’re really excited about it and I think you’ll see a lot more from me and Cadenza together.”
In the video, directed by Kirx, Bad Gyal embarks on a summer romance in east London. Watch the video above.
