Yinka is Nigeria-born, New York-raised, LA-based singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released a wonderful 7-track EP, titled, “Let’s Get Romantic,” via Platoon. In celebration, Yinka teamed up with Los Angeles-based director, Alyse Kane Riley, for the striking music video, which sees Yinka encouraging viewers to embrace romance. The visual further showcases a stunning portrait of love across all genders, sexualities, races, and religions.
Yinka – “Let’s Get Romantic” music video
“Let’s get romantic, let me love you like Bonnie and Clyde, but only if you want it. Goosebumps when we’re touching, let’s not say we’re f****** but we’re making love, baby. Oh, baby, can you see it, do you feel it? You’re falling, falling in love, baby.” – lyrics
‘Let’s Get Romantic’ tells a sensual tale about a young woman who desires to have her partner all to herself. Apparently, she’s in the mood for love and wants to experience a romantic adventure with her companion. Later, she tells her partner what she envisions happening, “You unzip my dress, and I say I’m a mess. Call me crazy and fine, then we end up in bed.”
‘Let’s Get Romantic’ is for the self-identified hopeless romantics. Cloaked in seductive notes of empowerment, the song proves Yinka is a major player in the contemporary R&B realm.

“‘Let’s Get Romantic’ is this generation’s reminder to give a f*** about love again. To be intentional about how we love. A reminder that love is as fragile as it is scarce.” – Yinka explained
‘Let’s Get Romantic’ EP serves as an introductory body of work about romance, inspiring a notably guarded post-pandemic generation to embrace love — love between a partner, friend, and oneself. Deeply inspired by her kaleidoscope of experiences, Yinka uses her music as a vessel to tell her story. As a proud woman of color and immigrant, she creates anthems for those who don’t conform to the status quo, lined with female empowerment at the core.
