Super talented Nigerian Alternative Soul and R&B singer Johnny Drille has already established himself as one of the strongest songwriters and instrumentalists in the game, similar to a Timi Dakolo and today he is back on NS with a brand new single titled Count On You, which makes for a very good listen. Check it out.
Johnny Drille’s “Count On You” is honest and simple in its message. The song is an invitation to be vulnerable and to tap into feelings that showcase the silver lining that can often be missed by focusing on the positivity that comes with pure love.
This particular piece is orchestrated exquisitely and laced with lyrics that only a true artiste with a passion for his art can accomplish. Accompanying the new release is a moving video starring former Big Brother stars, Teddy A and Bam Bam, telling one story; that as long as there is love, anything can be overcome.
The couple’s history represents the line expressed in the song, “[…] nobody thought we’d ever come this far […],” and in this deeply touching visual representation of this incredible love song, they have indeed defied all odds.
In the simplest of phrases, “Count On You” advocates expressing a love that can be true for a partner, mother, child, father, sibling, friend or lover by knowing whom to “count on” even when the chips are down.
The song was produced by Johnny Drille with lyrics by Johnny Drille.
The video was directed by Timmy Davies.
