Lila Iké – Forget Me | New Video
Lila Iké sheds layers of emotion revealing her most vulnerable side on “Forget Me”, a track from her debut EP “The ExPerience”. For its brand new video, director Oshane ‘Shane Creative’ Junior from Wikid Media JA & co-director Nickii Kane filmed a breakup to makeup sequence, mixed with color-saturated backdrops, in Kingston, Jamaica.
While “The ExPerience” is a perfect display of Lila Iké’s soul-stirring vocal range, her fearless songwriting also explores the blissful and heartbreaking nuances of relationships. “If everyday we ah-go fight, I think it’s best that you forget me,” admits Lila on the chorus. Producer Phillip “Winta” James (known for his work with Protoje, Mortimer, Nas & Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley) constructed a sparse instrumental on “Forget Me” using a classic bounce of high hat, kick drum, and snare that gives space for Lila’s passionate confession. At the climactic bridge of the song, Winta James adds trumpets evoking the flavor of Jamaican dub, followed by Lila’s rapid nonchalant flow in her island country’s traditional patois.
