We at #enthuse have a soft spot for the more sensual songs in life. We love those slow jams that make you have to knock boots or whatever the kids are calling it these days. Smash? Pork?
As such, we were quick to jump, catch and bite when the self-proclaimed “King of ZimRnB” Adrian Tate took all the sexy and then he poured it into his latest ditty, “Batirira”.
With AT’s mellow vocals singing all the kinds of nasty stuff, this track features the sound of a squeaking mattress. Not literally! It is boldly sensual and vaguely chaotic in the way only AT can be. Well, perchance Vimbai Z and Lady B, but you and me both know that’s an unfamiliar terrain.
Whatevs, man. The point is Adrian gently treads that line between romance and straight humping. Just when I thought “Murudo” was him reaching out to his neo-soul zeitgeist, he has again proved to us that the damn sky is the limit in making memorable videos.
See, for the love of love and sex, this video is a life-changing visual experience, at least to me. This is, on every level, a beautiful experience. This would make a straight woman or gay man that’s dying a particularly painful death smile with pure pleasure. It fills us with love and warmth and other less wholesome things.
I might be hard-pressed to defend this song as a top 5 R&B video of the year, but the tender melodies and vocal range are working in my favour. The song contains a serious volume of saucy lyrics as AT and bae get intimate in front of the camera as if nobody is watching.
We are not kidding, not exaggerating; this is the real thing. So if you just had a heart attack or are experiencing a flare-up, don’t click ahead. You’re entering the horny zone. Do not say I didn’t warn you.
Batirira is streaming on YouTube now. Check it out here. You might as well get hot and heavy wherever you and your significant other are. By the way, AT has released a remix of the song featuring Felita Ja’Cole.
