Kayo’s going back into the vault today as he releases the visuals to “Couldn’t Buy Her,” off his Classified-produced EP, One: The Prequel, and later his mixtape, The Escape Movement. Andrew Fleming handles the visuals for this one, and fans of The Search will enjoy seeing Quake make a cameo in the video. Most recently, Kayo dropped the S.L.A.V.E EP, which landed a spot on our list of Favourite Albums of 2013.
This year, the St. Lucia native is preparing to release his debut full-length album (no title announced yet), which he talked about in our last interview. Read a snippet of the conversation and check out the throwback visuals below.
TCUS: One last question for you. You’ve compared your album to a set of letters or memoirs, documenting your life from four years ago up until now. Can you elaborate on this?
Kayo: By saying that, it really touches on specific parts of my life. Within those parts of my life, different people had different significance. So [whether it’s] expressing my experiences in school, I have songs geared towards that, where I talk to a specific female, or I talk to my friends, or I talk from the perspective of someone else that was within that situation with me. That’s how the memoirs come together. And the reason that I described it like that was because of where my head was at at the time. It was just like me expressing these thoughts and these emotions, but collectively being geared towards St. Lucia, because St. Lucia was such a major part of my overall experience.
