New York, NY — Rising star Tomi Thomas is riding high coming off the release of his latest EP, Hopeless Romantic. Since the drop, the project has resonated with industry heavyweights and caught the media’s attention with international press coverage. The new EP features a collaboration with global phenom Buju Banton on the track “Hurricane.” The accompanying music video premieres on Buju’s birthday, July 15th.
“Hurricane” begins with a booming Buju at the intro and a powerful beat highlighting Tomi’s vocal range. The music video starts much the same, with a storm unleashed at the epicenter of the two singers. The visuals are ripe with nature’s fury, complete with beating rains and tumultuous winds swirling about. The song is a testament to the Hopeless Romantic’s diverse influence with various genres represented from Afrobeat to dancehall.
