 Afro-fusion legend and Nigerian singer, producer and songwriter Wande Coal drops a new single and visual  titled, ‘Umbrella.’ Co-written by grammy-nominated producer  Sak Pase, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Sean Kingston and Wande Coal.

 “Umbrella is meant to celebrate love and how protective, special, and full of life it makes you feel,” Wande says. In the video directed by Austin McCracken, Wande is first seen playing the piano and singing at a wedding. After the couple marries, Wande shows shows his emotion by dancing in the rain and sings the song’s chorus, “I’m in the rain like umbrella.”  The visual cuts back to the wedding reception and shows guests dancing and enjoying the festivities. “I like for my music to tell a story and paint a picture of what I’m going through and experiencing,” Wande said regarding the visual direction. “When people listen to this, I want them to think of happier times with people they love to be around.”

The single comes as the first visual offering and second single from EMPIRE’s new compilation album Where We Come From (VOL. 1). The body of work is set to highlight the rising talent from their ever-growing roster in the continent. The first single from the project, ‘Cough,’ by Kizz Daniel dropped on 14th of October and is currently #2 on the Global Shazam chart and #1 across every DSP platform in Nigeria.   

The album was created during the writing camp at EMPIRE’s headquarters in San Francisco directly following their first showcase “The New Africa” during the second night of SXSW.
