Today (Nov. 30), Stefflon Don connects with Afrobeats star Midas the Jagaban for the infectious offering “Toxic Love,” a Rexxie Pon Da Beat-backed effort that sees the artists boasting about success and — and the title makes clear — delving into some unhealthy lovemaking on wax:
“You just wan’ drive me crazy, I’m like fuck you, pay me … your love so toxic, baby…”
What’s truly notable about Stefflon and Midas’ new release is the accompanying clip, which came courtesy of late director Luke Biggins, who tragically passed away last month — the cause of his death is yet to be officially revealed. Throughout the colorful video, viewers get to see a breathtaking Stefflon getting into some serious choreographed moves with fellow dancers, all while Midas shares in the party vibes and a man plays an African drum in the shadows.
In addition to the promotion of “Toxic Love,” Stefflon took to social media to express what the song and visual means to her, paying tribute to Biggins while giving praise to everyone involved in the overall creation:
“This one is very special to me as this will be the last video My Friend & director Luke shot for me before he sadly passed away. … Luke you will be forever missed and your legacy will live forever. … Thank you for always going above and beyond. Rest in paradise Luke biggins…”
It’s been a few years since Stefflon Don liberated her last project Secure, a 16-track offering that saw additional assists from Future, Tiggs da Author, Ebenezer, Fekky, Haile, Sean Paul, Popcaan, Sizzla, and DJ Khaled. Since then, the British star has revealed a slew of loose singles and collaborations, including “Boasty” with Wiley, Paul, and Idris Elba, “Take Off” with Kojo Funds, “Don Walk,” “Phone Down” with Lil Baby, “Hit Me Up,” “How It’s Done” with Kash Doll, “Move,” “Can’t Let You Go,” and “Dip” with Ms Banks — all of which bring hope that a follow-up is arriving sooner than later.
