Today, Nigerian-American sister duo VanJess present “Come Over,” their latest soulful release for Keep Cool/RCA Records. With a driving bass and drums that could soundtrack any bedroom disco, “Come Over” is another showcase for these sisters’ perfected harmonies.
The “Come Over” music video is even more indebted to smooth ‘90s R&B – a throwback to landline phones and talking to our crushes in our basements. As VanJess proves, some activities, and some emotions, are timeless.
“For this video, we really wanted to capture vintage glamour but still feel like the future and represent who we are,” VanJess explain. “Early in quarantine we were really inspired looking at old photos of our parents in Nigeria and thought about what being at home living the lyrics of this record would look like in their world. We hope this song makes everyone feel good and dance, we believe energy and soul and tempo still has a place in R&B!”
Growing up between Lagos, Nigeria, and California, VanJess has brought an entirely new take to contemporary R&B, one that pays tribute to ‘90s greats like TLC, SWV, and Aaliyah, while instinctually inciting an inimitable style. The sisters cut their teeth online with a string of viral covers, bursting onto the scene with their self-released debut album, a definitive R&B statement, and a smooth, seductive record establishing the sisters as ones to watch – to take the R&B world by storm.
