Ghanaian Music: D’Cryme – It’s You

Dr CrymeDr Cryme, the rapper famous for the catchphrase “you don’t need to be told” is back with a brand new single and video ‘It’s You’. Currently one of the biggest artist Tema has produced yet again, Dr Cryme has cemented his stay in the music business by collaborating with artists such as Sarkodie, Chemphe, D-Black and Stay Jay as well as releasing his own singles ‘Kill Me Shy’, ‘Mene Woa’ and ‘Fre Me’.

It’s You’ will be the fourth single from Dr Cryme’s highly anticipated album ‘Finally Finally’, which was launched at Citizen Kofi in Ghana last Friday. The twi pop singer delivers yet again and ‘It’s You’ is definitely a song to write home about! Having established himself as a rapper as well as a singer, he moves smoothly between the two in the song. His silky voice over a relaxed hip hop beat accompanied by the piano works very nicely and he switches effortlessly between Twi and English. So even if you don’t understand one or the other, you’ll definitely get the gist of what the song is about.

The video itself was directed by Nana Asihene and it’s a simple one shot in black and white. With no storyline it just features Dr Cryme alone in an abandoned stairwell and an open field. The lack of activity and movement in the video means that focus is centred on Dr Cryme’s singing and thoughtful lyrics. A definite thumps up for the song!
