Oliver Heldens & Shungudzo Have Fire in Their Souls

The music video for Oliver Heldens’ latest single “Fire in My Soul” featuring Shungudzo is about cave people. Or maybe indigenous people?

Dutch house producer Oliver Heldens has done a ton of official remixes and collaborations, but he has yet to release a studio length album. “Fire in My Soul” is a new song with American vocalist Shungudzo. In the video well dressed, multicultural indigenous people wander through the desert.

There’s a fire in my soul, it’s the gasoline in you/ Make me burn out of control/ There’s a fire in my mouth, only you could put it out/ Come on over put it out…” sings Shungudzo amid the tribal rhythm.

Alexandra “Shungudzo” Govere is a Zimbabwean-American philanthropist, singer, songwriter, record producer, gymnast, journalist and reality television personality. She went to Stanford, which is almost as good of a university as Berkeley. She used to sing backup for Santigold.

On Instagram, Heldens writes, “FIRE IN MY SOUL! 🔥🕺 The official music video is out now on @vevo! 😎 Click the link in my bio to check it out 🎥 (directed by @mike100mike100) 🔥🔥🔥.” But he does not tag Shungudzo for some reason, whatever that may be.

Shungudzo states, “Five people from (at least) five nations came together to create this song. I love how music connects us, as creators and listeners, in an experience that transcends our superficial differences. We are, after all, all human. Or alien, if you’re from out of this world. 😉 Shout out to the dream team: @oliverheldens, @oakestra, @zairekoalo + @downtowntrevorbrown.”
