Nigerian music sensation Asake has debuted the official music video for his fascinating song “Basquiat,” which stands out among the outstanding tracks on his sophomore album, “Work of Art.” Asake eloquently presents himself as a versatile artist, saying in the lyrics that he is “a walking poetry and a work of art,” drawing inspiration from the legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who had a big effect in the 1980s as a key character in the Neo-expressionism movement.

The music video is a work of art in visual form, successfully accentuating the song’s spirit with a fascinating display of lavida loca settings and intriguing abstract paintings. The video expertly blends Asake’s captivating performance with arresting images, seamlessly bringing the music to life and providing viewers with a visual feast.

As a longtime collaborator of Asake, Magicsticks offers his own unique touch to the tune, enhancing its contagious intensity and resonant rhythms. Basquiat benefits from this superb production. The video’s outstanding direction by Joshua Valle and Edgar Steves, who expertly caught the spirit of Asake’s aesthetic vision, added an additional layer of creative genius.

Work of Art, Asake’s second studio album, is still receiving high praise for its distinctive sound and alluring tunes. Asake further solidifies his status as a true superstar by using Basquiat as a shining illustration of his depth as an artist, continuously pushing the envelope and reshaping the current music scene.
