Continuing on the success of “Ghost” released last summer, Christian Rich and Jaden Smith have reunited to release a follow-up to the popular single and video. The sequel, titled “Shibuya (Ghost II)”, also enlists the help of Vic Mensa and Belly on the vocals.
Grammy-nominated production duo Christian Rich, made up of twin brothers Kehinde and Taiwo Hassan, aimed to deliver a second chapter to their successful track, along with accompanying visuals that would convey their vision of a super team. “Delivering songs with superstars all on one song, we see them like combining the Avengers. Visually we created a short film concept to bring a new look to contemporary music but with nostalgic elements that connect the viewer to forgotten childhood adventures,” they stated in the press release. The result is an epic anime-inspired music video set in a futuristic Shibuya, which draws inspiration from cartoons like G-Force and He-Man that the brothers watched as kids.
Take a look at the video above, and listen to “Shibuya (Ghost II)” now on all major streaming platforms.
