One of the steady musical mainstays in the Sidewalk Hustle office is Doing It In Lagos (Boogie, Pop & Disco In 1980s Nigeria) a compilation worth its weight in disco gold (seriously, if you haven’t listened yet we put it at the bottom of the article). So imagine our delight when we heard/saw that NYC rapper Theophilus London and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker debuted ‘Only You’, a contemporary interpretation of Nigerian artist Steve Monite’s 1984 synth-disco classic.
The retro-VHS style music video was directed by Frankie Latina and plays perfectly with the retro-synth vibe of the song. It’s a fun shoulder shaking, two-foot tapping tune that will very easily become your new favourite track. Do yourself a favour and hit play above now.
