Earlier in the year, Victor AD teamed up with Davido for "Tire You" — a worthy follow-up to his 2018 breakout hit, "Wetin We Gain". After that, he dropped the politically conscious "Why" and then came through with the thoughtful "Emoji", which just got a fitting video.
Following "Wetin We Gain", we noted Victor AD as a star to watch, and he's proved us right every step of the way. The singer certainly does not disappoint with "Emoji", delivering an innovative and cheeky track that differs from his previous releases.
Against the enjoyable Tee Y Mix-produced beat, Victor AD expresses concern over people's ability to hide behind emojis. He notes that with a well-placed smiley, someone could pretend to be happy or supportive even when they're really sad or hateful.
For the clip, Victor AD captures the song's lyrics, as we follow his seemingly perfect relationship. Things eventually hit a speedbump when he learns of his lover's infidelity, but instead of confronting her, he decides to pretend as if everything is fine.
