DARKOO RELEASES ‘KRYPTONITE’ OFFICIAL VIDEO
Kryptonite is the gorgeous, feel-good ray of positivity we all need. Produced by AJ Productions (The producer behind Gangsta as well as the top 10 KSI, Tion Wayne & Swarmz hit Houdini), Darkoo showcases her melodic skills over the bass heavy anthem and we are reminded ‘tough times never last’. Darkoo shares:
“Kryptonite is all about the excitement you feel when you’re dating someone, about that one person who will always be your ‘Kryptonite’ or you’ll have a soft spot for”
Directed by Kaylum (whose credits include Stormzy, Dave and MoStack), the vibrant video sees Darkoo embracing both of her signature styles.
Darkoo expands on the message behind the video:
“In the eyes of social media you could say we all take on this ultimate superpower of showing the world only what we want them to see. I want to encourage everyone to be themselves and be comfortable in their own skin with no limits. Be your own ‘Kryptonite’, strip yourself of the facade. In the video you see me dressing up in a glam look, but also very comfortable with shaven hair, ice and casual clothes. I’m living the best of both world, I’m a 2-in-1 baby!”
First introduced to the masses in a 30sec social media preview which quickly accumulated millions of views ‘Gangsta’ quickly became a cultural moment – charting in The Official Chart’s Top 40 in its 1st week of release and eventually reaching #22. ‘Gangsta’ is now certified silver in the UK with over 200,000 sales. ‘Juicy’ which featured UK figurehead Hardy Caprio resulted in Darkoo being named as the #1 UK creator on Triller upon launch.
