Friction is back, and how! A year after he released the reggae-hit ?Life is not easy? ft. Guru he surprises everyone with a wonderful lovers rock reggae track. The combination of a danceable high quality reggae beat, sweet lyrics and the characteristic voices from Friction and CASiTA make ?I Love You? a one of kind reggae-song.?And as we know from Friction, he never forsakes to represent Africa, so the accompanying video is filled with beautiful African details as?well.
Friction is known for his mix of reggae and afropop, and for his many accomplishments in the international music scene. As a teenager he founded the group VIP (Vision in Progress), one of Ghana?s most popular music groups. After being their frontman for a couple of years he went solo, and continued to follow his musical visions.?In 2006 he got admitted to the Dutch Music University ?The Rockacademy?, as the first African artist ever. Over the years, Friction has performed on a lot of festivals in Europe, his songs have got worldwide airplay, he was the support act of the reggae legend I Jan Man Levi, and he has appeared in several radio and tv shows, such as the Dutch X Factor and the talkshow De Wereld Draait Door.
Last year Friction released the reggae-single ?Life is not easy?, which got nominated in three categories on the Ghanaian Reggae and Dancehall Bass Awards.
In March of this year Friction performed as the support act of Morgan Heritage in Holland.
Just a small overview of Friction?s accomplishments, which show his talent, determination and his ability to always find ways to climb to the next level in music.
Collaboration with CASiTA
Working with CASiTA has been a wish of Friction since the day he met her and heard her voice, back in 2006.??CASiTA has a magical voice and a very professional attitude.?Like myself, she lives for the music, and I knew one day we had to make a hittrack together. When I get the riddim ?Johhny Blaze Riddim? from Rebel Liberation Records, a record label from Kenya, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to let it happen?.
It doesn?t take long to understand why Friction was keen to work with CASiTA. Hearing about her musical achievements makes you to know that she is a very talented artist, with the same international focus as Friction. Not only has she been the support act of Beyonc? and Angie Stone, among others stars, she has also toured all over Europe, Asia and Africa. In 2012 she hitted Holland with her song ?Today?, and she is the owner of multiple awards which she has won throughout the years.
Enjoy this collaboration between two musical talents: ?I Love You? from Friction ft. CASiTA!
