WurlD drops the visuals for the buzzing song, directed by Baba Agba and WurlD. after the successfu release of “Wayo” off his EP, “Afrosoul“.
The focus of “AfroSoul” EP was to experiment the limits of soul as a genre of music and is achieved as Wurld retained the elements of his ‘soul’ artistry throughout the project. The track sequence of this seven-track EP is very much sonic as the well thought out dance tracks came before the slower, more methodical sounds.
Wurld’s Soul/Alternative background can be heard in his delivery. The lead single, ‘Love Nobody’ is a song about the weird tendencies of his possessive lover and which he also discusses detraction.
It’s actually impressive how Wurld embraced his lamba side with that “songoloso…” delivery on ‘National Anthem (Growing Wings).’ The song also bears distant emblems of elemental Lagbaja. While ‘Ghost Town’ is essentially a Reggae song, the soul background can be felt in Wurld’s delivery and vocal texture as Wurld poetically discusses probability, love and choices.
‘Story’ is a lo-fi lamba which Wurld absolutely rips to shreds. As Wurld sings about love like he was Wande Coal on a beautiful Friday night, something about this song screams, ‘booyah!’ ‘Wayo’ is an Afrobeat song produced by Kel P on which Wurld embodies a man who craves reassurance. It merges Afrobeat BPM and arrangement with R&B and Soul – if Soul were a traditional African genre.
‘Can’t Come Outside’ is an R&B song that sees Wurld discuss the turbulence of a problematic love affair. ‘Birthday Song’ sees Wurld talk like an aristo or T.I in that song, ‘Whatever You Like.’ He’s handed a woman the proverbial black card – let’s hope she’s not Igbo.
With “Wayo”, WurlD shows off his exciting vocal finesse and innate musicality that has brought him early critical acclaim on the global scene.
WurlD continues to keep fans on their toes, pleasantly, with consistent music releases. He constantly showcases his unique ability to fuse soulful sounds, African pop, distinct songwriting and vocal prowess.
The petrol blue-haired singer continues to define himself as one of the trendsetting artists rising out of Africa right now.
