British singer and rapper  Stephanie Victoria Allen popularly known as Stefflon Don teamed up with Tiwa Savage and Rema for a afro futuristic teamed music video.

The brand-new video, features 3-D animation that transforms all three artists into Sims-like characters. The Can’ let you go remix was directed and animated by Ben Dosage, a highly detailed narrative-driven sci-fi piece which takes viewers to an otherworldly tropical paradise.

“For this track, I wanted to lean into my natural singing voice and also experiment with doing some of the melodies in Yoruba,” explained the artist in a statement, “The overall vibe of the track is underpinned by a sultry Afro Beats sound. I always love to fuse all of my cultural influences into my work, because I am very much inspired by different parts of the world”.

The original video for “Can’t Let You Go,” which dropped in October, saw Stefflon Don give a delicious blend of Yoruba and Pidgin, Zanku, and vibing on a very Afro beat. The song instantly became a fan favorite, amassing more than 16 million streams worldwide.

Speaking English, Dutch and now yoruba (we have Burna boy to thank for that) Steff has the effortless ability to inhabit many worlds, offering a genuine, authentic global perspective through her music – whether rap, grime, pop, bashment or bubbling.

Stefflon tells GQ UK: “My upbringing definitely made me more open to different genres of music, different sounds, and different languages, because I grew up around so many people from different backgrounds,” she said. “When you speak another language I think you’re automatically a little bit more diverse than someone who just speaks one language.”

Born to Jamaican parents in Birmingham, the rapper spent much of her youth in the Netherlands. Steff first made an impression in 2015 with her powerful, patois-inflected version of Wretch 32’s Six Words and her take on the Section Boy’s street smash Lock Arff.
