improvised



K'naanとNelly Furtadoという女性歌手がmtvの収録のためにperformしたものです
これのすごい所は、
歌詞は決まっていたのでしょうが、どちらがどのタイミングでそのセリフを歌うのか、
またどこで一緒に歌うのか、バンドのメンバーのplayも含め
すべてがその時の即興演奏です

緊張感を楽しむ2人の表情や、楽しさに満ちた笑顔
ウタが終わった後に、magic!という言葉を誰かが言っていたけど
起こっていることが細かく見えるようになってくると、
うっすら涙が出てしまいます

Hello people.

Long time no talk. I've been busy making some new music.
You know what, I got a plan to share some of the new songs…
But first, check out the new video on my profile. It's from a
taping for an mtv performance, with me and the beautiful
Nelly Furtado. The song was mostly improvised, and we did not
know who would sing at which point, this is why, if you listen
closely, you can hear me say to Nelly, "I'll take it" because for
a moment, we're both kinda waiting for the other to say something...
and she responds "ok" and at another point, she says out the line
"remember" to prompt me. And so on. The mtv camera people
keep swerving back and forth to catch the words, and Nelly and I
are smiling at each other enjoying the pressure.
It was a very rare and beautiful moment. Enjoy the
song, I think we called it 'Going Away'.

K'naan.
