"Falling for you" is an Afrobeat inspired pop-song sang with a dancehall feel by Malawian singer/songwriter, Malaika. The saucy song challenges gender stereotypes, encouraging women to go after what they want (in this context a man, instead of always waiting for the guy to make the first move). Talking about what inspired her to write the song Malaika says far too many women are unfulfilled and unhappy in relationships because they don't feel they can express themselves sexually or communicate their desires without running the risk of being labelled "wild" or accused of cheating. The singer teamed up with Zimbabwean born, UK number selling record producer Rymez. The music video features Zimbabwean superstar Tytan playing a cameo role and is directed by award winning Zimbabwean artist and producer Jusa Dementor.
