Song of the Day: Cooked Food – Vicky Sola

BBC 1Xtra and Capital Xtra supported Brixton Afrofusion singer/songwriter, VICKY SOLA is one to watch this year! She kick starts her 2019 with the exciting new music video for her latest single ‘Cooked Food’, taken from her long awaited and highly anticipated debut EP, which is set for release later this year.

Written by VICKY SOLA, and produced by Delirious, who has previously worked with Tinie Tempah, Lady Leshurr, Stylo G, Mista Silva, among others, ‘Cooked Food’ is an infectious R&B/Pop slanted offering, with unmistakable Afrobeats sensibilities, which is backed by lush piano arrangements and bass heavy drums, and held together nicely by Vicky’s captivating vocal and lyrical performance.

For the ‘Cooked Food’ video, VICKY SOLA took things back to her hometown in Brixton, with the help of burgeoning video director Marika Godwin (Nolay, Trillary Banks, Runtown). Filmed around the vibrant Brixton market, with choreography directed by Patience J (WSTRN, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Emeli Sande), the outcome is a fierce and colourful visual offering that not only brings the record further to life, but also showcases Vicky’s infectious personality and performance prowess.
