LargeUp Premiere: Watch Romain Virgo + Assassin’s “Fade Away” Video

October 19, 2015

Words by Nadine White


Romain Virgo and Assassin have linked up for an extra-large collaboration in โ€˜Fade Away.โ€™ The track has a different vibe to the soulful Loverโ€™s Rock and Rub-A-Dub material Virgo is known for, serving as a testament to the young singerโ€™s malleability and ever-expanding scope. With Sascoโ€™s rugged rhymes in the mix, you have yourself a well put together, catchy tune.

This is allegorical music; much like the Junior Byles classic which shares the same name, โ€˜Fade Awayโ€™ counsels listeners about placing trust in the wrong people. Most appropriately, the video was shot in the streets of Kingston, offering snapshots of various scenarios which share themes of mutiny and betrayal, which most people can relate to at some point or other.

โ€˜Fade Awayโ€™ is featured on Virgoโ€™s upcoming VP Records EP, Lifted, available worldwide Oct. 30.
