Blaqbonez Sets A Marker For His Year With “Play” Video

February 5, 2019

After announcing himself on the main stage with his debut album, 2018’s “Bad Boy Blaq”, Chocolate City signee Blaqbonez is setting a marker for his year with the video for “Play” that features rapper, Ycee.

Blaqbonez Play Ycee

“Play” is the first single off “BadBoyBlaq: Re-Up”, a re-working of songs off his debut that is scheduled for release sometime this February.

Blaq embraces his more melodic side as he croons away through a house party replete with the familiar distractions.

The video, directed by The Myth, provides a colourful canvas that sits well with Blaqbonez’s foray into pop territory.

Ycee delivers in one of his trademark mazy runs, as he continues to make a case for a comeback of sorts on his self-owned ANBT label.
