Ikonic Visual: Nigeria Native Artist Squeeze Tarela – “Cocoa Butter”

Squeeze Tarela, the afro-reggae artist and recently crowned ‘Best Reggae Artiste of the Year’ at the Akademia Music Awards in LA, releases this empowering, summer record dripping in melanin and female appreciation. The track, which premiered with DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra, follows previous singles such as ‘Hottest Thing’ and ‘Better’, which have awarded him hundreds of thousands of YouTube views and Spotify streams. In a generation quick to demean women as mere walking swollen vessels with a forbidden fruit not so forbidden these days, it’s refreshing to hear music with this level of positivity amid a colorful and aesthetically stunning visual. “Cocoa Butter” a stuck-in-your-head record with an amazing vibe doused in beautiful Queens amid the vocal strength of a king; a must see. Check it out below!
