Last October, legendary P-Funk bassist/Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Bootsy Collins released his latest studio album, World Wide Funk – his first in six years. The album’s lead single – “Worth My While” featuring Kali Uchis – was released the August before that, and now the duo is back with visuals in hand just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Sharing sonic similarities with Bootsy’s biggest hit, “I’d Rather Be With You,” the Uchis-assisted single tells a tale of the journey of finding love. The video follows suit with a visually seductive experience depicting a woman in search of that love that makes it all worth it.
“The Journey to find another Love can make one Crazy. So the question becomes: Is it Worth My While?” said Collins in an exclusive quote to HipHopDX. “That’s where the song comes from – out of Love, Pain and the desire to make your life meaningful with a true purpose.”
World Wide Funk is out now with features from Kali Uchis, Doug E. Fresh, Chuck D, Musiq Soulchild, Big Daddy Kane, the late, great P-Funk keyboardist Bernie Worrell.
