Ikaya releases video for 'Leave You Alone'
Soulful reggae singer Ikaya is back with a video release for her single Leave You Alone featuring Jesse Royal.
The song is featured on the 2017 Reggae Gold compilation album. Paired with breakout reggae artist Jesse Royal, the result is melodic magic.
Filmed in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica and directed by Nile Saulter and Jason Panton, the scenic, picturesque video showcases stunning shots of Ikaya as she sings the tale of being with a lover that she knows she shouldn't be with.
Portrayed as the man Ikaya is trying to reach, Jesse Royal rides his motorcycle to a studio where he performs his verse ending with the sentiment "it's best I leave you alone."
Ikaya has made a mark in the reggae music industry over the past several years with various hit songs including Hard Way', Good up, Amber Alert, Ugly Girl and Ain't Giving Up.
The songstress is also a prolific DJ, and has opened for many big acts locally and internationally and won many awards including the Stone Love Award for Female Artiste of the Year.
"Shooting the video in the hills of Jamaica truly captured the essence of the song," said Ikaya. The blend of the scenery and the ambience really provides the viewer with a real connection with the feelings that I felt while writing and recording the track. Jesse Royal's presence and performance is nothing short of complimentary."
Ikaya is currently working on a studio album with VP Records.
