Rudimental, has been one of the most successful acts of the UK. They have released their third studio album, ‘Toast To Our Differences’.
‘Let Me Live’ is a major track of the album which features one of the hottest collaborations of the year, with Major Lazer. The track also features last year’s latest pop find, Anne-Marie, Afro-Beat star Mr Eazi and additional vocals from Grammy – winning South African choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
Having such a great set of people who have worked on it, the song is really a happy number; quite lively and celebratory in its energy. The video has been directed by the South African, Chris Saunders, and it features a lot of colours, dance and happiness. The setting begins in London- in a grey and boring street and slowly shifts to a more amazing and vibrant setting in Johannesburg. The video is inspired by a high- energy dance form originating in Johannesburg- called Pantsula along with Durban’s Gqom music scene.
The music which is groovy and very peculiar, just the way every Rudimental and Major Lazer track is, and adds a peppy flavor to it. It is sure to make you dance no matter what situation you’re in.
