The young prodigy from Pretoria returns after months of absence in this new dark and taciturn visuals.
The theme addressed by the artist justifies the colours of the video. Indeed, in this song, A-reece exposes a disappointing relationship and his impossible desires with a woman who apparently left him: “Not saying that I want you back but girl I still love you”. This melancholy has to be read in the light of the young rapper’s dazzling rise: at only 22 years old, Lehlogonolo Ronald Mataboge’s been rapping since 2015 and was named Lyricist Of The Year at the 2016 South African Hip Hop Awards. The visuals, shot in the streets of Cape Town by night by Motion Billy, are far from the flamboyance of his incredible journey. However, it reflects the loneliness and regrets that emanate from the song.
“We both know better” is taken from his latest project Reece Effect, released in April 2019.
