O Uzoechi “Uzo” Emenike ή γνωστός ως MNEK είναι Βρετανός καλλιτέχνης και έχει γράψει τραγούδια ή έχει κάνει παραγωγή για καλλιτέχνες όπως Beyoncé ( Hold Up από το ‘Lemonade’), Madonna (Living For Love από το ‘Rebel Heart’), Kylie Minogue, Dua Lipa, Diplo, Zara Larsson και MØ (Final Song). Μεγαλύτερη του επιτυχία το “Never Forget You” μαζί με την Zara Larsson. O MNEK επιστρέφει με ένα νέο single που σίγουρα θα προκαλέσει αίσθηση μιας και χρησιμοποιεί sample ενός dance classic του 1997.

Το νεό future hit ονομάζεται ‘Paradise’ και ακούγοντας το θα σας έρθει στο μυαλό το ‘Free’ της Ultra Naté. Το video του ‘Paradise’ περιέχει ένα ηχηρό μήνυμα κατά της αστυνομικής βίας. Σχετικά με αυτό ο MNEK δήλωσε:

The concept of the video is a very beautiful man by the name of Dennis walking this alternate universe a.k.a. Paradise, and it, in its own way, just shows how beautiful things can be, how dark things can be — but how we get to a happy place in the end. I think police brutality is something that shouldn’t be a thing. Police are supposed to protect us, and in the majority of cases they do, but unfortunately sometimes they abuse their power. It’s a shame it’s the world we live in, and it was important to show that in the video.

MNEK Paradise Lyrics

If you wanna leave
If you wanna go
Baby don’t leave
Why don’t we go somewhere somewhere somewhere
Why don’t we go somewhere somewhere somewhere

[Chorus] Would you like to go to paradise
Cos I’m not tryna go alone
Runaway with me to paradise
If you wanna leave, then we can go
Cos the real world told me lies
The realist lies ever told
So let’s runaway and find paradise
Paradise
And soon paradise will be home

[Post-Chorus] If you wanna leave
If you wanna go
Baby don’t leave yet

[Verse 1] Take my hand, shut your eyes and imagine
Wouldn’t it be nice
Just to have an escape, a distraction
Far away from this life?
I tried to be cool but this world was too cruel
For me to sit around and simply drown in fear
So I’m asking you, what would you do
If we could get out of here?

[Chorus] Would you like to go to paradise
Cos I’m not tryna go alone
Runaway with me to paradise
If you wanna leave, then we can go
Cos the real world told me lies
The realist lies ever told
So let’s runaway and find paradise
Paradise
And soon paradise will be home

[Post-Chorus] If you wanna leave
If you wanna go
Baby don’t leave yet

[Verse 2] Your love’s like a fantasy
Nothing like what I saw on the news yesterday
Another man down, blood on the ground
Makes me wanna just runaway
Where we run is a mystery
Ignorance is bliss to me
Cos whenever I turn on my TV it’s just misery
I tried to be cool but this world’s too cruel
For me to sit around and simply drown in fear
So I’m asking you, what would you do
If we could get out of here, because I want to go

[Chorus] Would you like to go to paradise
Cos I’m not tryna go alone
Runaway with me to paradise
If you wanna leave, then we can go
Cos the real world told me lies
The realist lies ever told
So let’s runaway and find paradise
Paradise
And soon paradise will be home

[Outro] Home
Home
Home
Paradise is in my mind baby
Paradise is in my mind baby
It won’t take to long to find baby
Paradise is in my mind baby
In paradise we’re free
To do what we want to do
In paradise we’re free baby

You can’t runaway forever
