Yesterday, January 5, 2022, Ruger took to his Instagram page to announce that the official music video for one of his trending songs, ‘Snapchat‘ will be out on January 6, 2022.
According to him, “ASHAWO VIDEO OF THE YEAR drops TOMORROW 6/01/2022 at 12 NOON ?? if you’re ready say ahaaaaaann“.
SNAPCHAT is a track taken from Ruger’s sophomore EP titled, ‘Second Wave‘ which is a follow-up to the debut EP – Pandemic.
Ruger’s six-track debut Pandemic announced his arrival on the blossoming Afropop scene—and led him to opening for Burna Boy’s 2021 UK tour. On The Second Wave, Ruger reasserts his hitmaking credentials.
His ongoing partnership with veteran producer KukBeat is once again on full display here, sticking with the formula that delivered “Bounce”. On “Champion”, he recalls his humble beginnings as the son of a roadside food vendor and recounts a steady growth from the streets to the stage—with plenty of chest-thumping: “Tell me why you vexing/not yet started, I’m still testing/already impressing.” He makes a call romantic attention on “Snapchat”, a fitting title for a star who first got the attention of label boss D’Prince by way of Instagram freestyles. The EP’s highlight and twilight is “Dior”, where the infectious percussive underlay becomes a neat canvas for Ruger’s distinct wordplay and self-assuredness.
