In the way their artistry is expressed, Rick Jade have chosen to meet every milestone in their lives with music. The release of their single “Sweetie Lavo” speaks to their most recent joyous moment, their marriage.
Sonically, the single draws on soundscapes South Africans would recognize from the old school wedding songs popular throughout the nation. This drop takes them outside of the sonic motif that listeners have come to expect from Rick Jade. After teasing at the release on social media, the music duo has finally debuted the song.
“We were able to take certain nuances from these artists [Brenda Fassie, Joe Nina, Malaika and Mafikizolo] to make a 2019 wedding record that felt and sounded like an actual wedding song, not a rap or R&B song.” – Priddy Ugly
“They say all great things happen in 3s. In our case, the birth of our musical duo ‘Rick Jade’, further solidifying our union through our marriage and expecting our first bundle of joy would be our greatness manifested. So much more has happened in between and around these events that make it more than 3, and in the spirit of celebrating all our milestones, achievements, in realizing our dreams & goals together in our 10 year union, it feels amazing to be able to live your best moments together and create the soundtracks to those moments.” – Bontle Modiselle
