Excellent UK singer Mahalia has teamed with booming Nigerian artist Burna Boy to drop the video for their song "Simmer" in time to be in the running for Top Songs of the Summer. The sultry beat has a few fat synth sounds and some ringing 808 bass drums but the best instruments on the track are Mahalia and Burna's voices. Their opposite sides of the vocal spectrum compliment each other well, with Mahalia repping the high register and Burna taking care of the low. The video radiates a warm orange glow as the lyrics go "you're making it too hot for me to stay here" and "cool down, simmer." See for yourself below and keep an eye on both artists as their inevitable American takeover grows closer!
