Currently polishing off a world tour, Sydney Based African-Australian artist MANU CROOK$ has blessed us with visuals to match his sultry new single “Fuego” (produced by DOPAM!NE).
Rounding out an epic trip to Canada, US, UK, and Europe with a run of dates in EU supporting SAINt JHN before returning in July for Splendour In The Grass, new single “Fuego” sees Crook$ team up with fellow Sydney artist Anfa Rose once again for the sexiest track he has ever released.
Directed by long-time visual collaborators The Jaen Collective, with the audio mix by Ethan Myers and Harry Knazan (of Apollo Studios in Toronto) the video for “Fuego” is a sultry visual addition to the track.
Filmed through cognac-tinted lenses and dripping in Parisian luxury, Crook$ alongside model Jelena Markovic, is as enviously smooth in his presence as he is in his melodies. Frequent collaborator Anfa Rose whose vocals are responsible for the crescendoing hook also finds his renaissance in the clip.
As his international reputation builds, Manu has also made fans in famous circles – getting tags and mentions from influential artists in the US and UK such as Stormzy, Big Boi, and A$AP Ferg. Manu has just finished a world tour which included ASAP Ferg’s legendary sold out show in Toronto and a 6-date European tour with US artist SAINt JHN.
With added moments like the Alison Wonderland Scarehouse Tour, The PLOT Festival, Falls Festival, a special performance in Moscow, spins from Zane Lowe on Beats 1, features in The Coveteur, Highsnobiety, The Fader and Clash Magazine, as well as high rotation singles on Triple j and FBi Radio under his belt, Manu Crooks proves he is the Australian hip hop artist to watch as he steps up time and time again.
Manu Crook$ will be performing at Splendour In The Grass in Byron Bay in July.
