Gyakie’s aggressive flow over a drill rhythm made by Sosa alongside JBEE gives the dramatic and emotionally packed R&B track “Scar” life. Gyakie depicts a relationship gone bad from both of their perspectives, with hers focusing on anguish and his on uncertainty and fears. Both singers provide hard-hitting vocals to the menacing music of “Scar,” which is accentuated by powerful 808s. JBEE’s verse has gentler melodies that contrast with the harder words.
Gyakie and JBEE tell their respective sides of the love story in the visuals for “Scar,” which are juxtaposed throughout and use red tones to symbolize the love and pain in the narrative that runs throughout the song. “Scar” was directed by Craig Capone, who has previously worked on the visuals for artists including Headie One, Sarkodie, Chip, and Ms. Banks, as well as Romara Blake, who is well-known for her work with Eva Lazarus.
Since making her debut with the song “Love is Pretty” in 2019, Gyakie has been moving up the ranks. She has since worked with people like AKA, Diplo, Blaq Jerzee, Major League DJz, and Mayorkun, among others. Her breakthrough song, “Forever,” attracted attention on a global scale and has had over 150 million listens across all platforms.
JBEE from North London is one of the go-to newcomers in British rap who is carving out a niche for himself. He published “4 AM” in 2021, and it has since had over 77 million streams. Currently, it reaches 3.7 million monthly Spotify listeners. It’s hardly surprising that at the conclusion of the previous year, he received a MOBO nomination for Best Newcomer.
Working with London’s JBEE added a new dimension to Scar, and Gyakie, a Flip The Music signed artist, said of the experience: “For me, this was such a great experience to bring our two sounds together to create a deep, yet catchy single that is relatable to audiences across the continents.”
Speaking about the release, JBEE remarked, “Even though it was the holiday season when Gyakie calls, you answer! I was in Ghana for the New Year. In Ghana, we came together, and ‘Scar’ was born. I’m Ghanaian even though I was born and raised in London, and I’m thrilled that we were able to work together to create this song. The fans should like this one as two universes clash.
The group’s collaboration song offers raw, honest, and heartbreaking insight into modern relationships that will appeal to music listeners everywhere.
