Before you get started with your weekend festivities, I’d like to introduce you to Wasiu, a 23-year-old emcee, hailing from Montreal. Today, he’s making his DopeHouse debut with the lead single from his yet-to-be-titled album.
Produced by fellow Montrealer and all around genius, Kaytranada, the official video for “Physical” can be seen above. Press play, read some of Wasiu’s words on the clip below, and be sure to let dude know what you think on Twitter.
“‘Physical’ is about casual sex where love is strictly forbidden,” explains Wasiu. “The lyric ‘I can’t feel your love cause I’m numb to it’ explains how years of emotional pain can make someone emotionless, and consequently this can turn a once seeker of love into a seeker of numbers, seeking phone numbers to increase body count. The cover art for the single embodies this notion and depicts the numbers/barcode/body count wordplay.”
Apparently there’s a shit ton of fashion-related things going on as well, but I rock jeans and Chucks daily, so I wouldn’t have the slightest of clues.
