staying true to their spirit of artistry the couple, whose stage name is Rick Jade, has released a new single titled Sweetie Lavo.
The song celebrates their most recent joyous moment, their wedding.
It seems every milestone in Rick Jade's life is accompanied by a new song. Remember how they had us all melting with their pregnancy announcement that was accompanied by a song, Bonita, plus a music video?
The new single Sweetie Lavo draws its sound from soundscapes that South Africans would recognize from old school wedding songs that are popular throughout the nation. You know those songs we get down and do the wedding step to? Priddy vibey right?
This is what each member of Rick Jade had to say about their newest release:
"The beat was still bare and in its infancy. I called Wichi 1080 to play him references to the wedding songs I loved most while growing up. We played Brenda Fassie, Joe Nina, Malaika and Mafikizolo. We were able to take certain nuances from these artists to make a 2019 wedding record that felt and sounded like an actual wedding song, not a rap or R&B song."- Priddy Ugly
"They say all great things happen in 3s. In our case, the birth of our musical duo ‘Rick Jade’, further solidifying our union through our marriage and expecting our first bundle of joy would be our greatness manifested. So much more has happened in between and around these events that make it more than 3, and in the spirit of celebrating all our milestones, achievements, in realizing our dreams & goals together in our 10 year union, it feels amazing to be able to live your best moments together and create the soundtracks to those moments." -Bontle
