Cassper Nyovest took to his Instagram Live in the early hours of Thursday morning to invite fans into his studio session with pianist and long-time collaborator Alie Keys, as well as superstar vocalist Nobantu Vilakazi.
The song he previewed sees Nyovest combining the sounds of hip-hop and kwaito over two rap verses on a laid-back beat and a mellow hook.
Toward the end of the 10-minute-long IG Live, the trio also performed an acoustic version of the song.
“Vibing out with Nobantu Vilakazi tonight, final touches on the album with Alie Keys,” he shared on his Instagram feed when the IG Live ended.
Fans have been taking to the comments section on the post to share their thoughts, while others have been sharing their reactions on Twitter.
“Cassper Nyovest is back with another hit called SUMMER ROSE Ft. Nabantu Vilakazi ❤️,” Tweeted one fan.
“Definitely Matured Music for the grown ase ya di laitie!!! Kea ma Grootman . #CassperNyovest #SummerRose.”

Another Tweep wasn’t as excited about the song and suggested that if AKA were still alive he’d be trolling him.
“I’m so happy we all agree Cassper is whack, but what saddens me is that Kiernan is no more to rub it in his face #JusticeForAKA.”
