The single #LaVie is the second one by Liinx from his much anticipated album ‘MANDU MANDU’ (meaning ‘BIT-BY-BIT’ in his native Bayangi/kenyang dialect) due to be released mid-2019.
Mostly known as a rapper, Liinx for a second time deviates into singing after his first single #LevezVous, an afrobeat record.
In #LaVie the artist provides groovy and soulful vocals on a messages-filled makossa inspired record.
The goal of this variety is to make the album a blend that will not just showcase the artist’s versatility but also give the broad fan-base a possibility to enjoy different genres of music on the same album project.
#LaVie is produced by melloman-extraordinaire Mister Elad a.k.a Mister Malody. The producer and Liinx choose to invite a host of seasoned instrumentalists to play live on the record, thus creating an electrifying and ambient feeling.
The self-explanatory and captivating line ‘La Vie appartient a ceux qui ne dorment pas’ expressed in french as well as a great portion of the song is a message aimed at encouraging people to work hard for what/who they wish to aquire/be in life.
In the Video shot by award winning director Adah Akenji, Liinx in a colourful and afro inspired setting executes a lot of dancing together with his team of 5 choreographers led by the amazing Aline Snuff.
Sticking to the policy of the label, #LaVie is an uncensored song and video, which makes it possible for all age groups or families to happily enjoy the record in any given circumstance without feeling embarrassed.
