Ace alternative singer, Adekunle Gold has released a new single, ‘Young Love‘, off his coming project “Afropop Vol.1” which is scheduled for release later this year. This comes just a couple of months after his experimental ‘Kelegbe Megbe‘ where he warns off detractors to remain in their level.
Just like ‘Before You Wake Up‘ and ‘Kelegbe Megbe‘ before it, ‘Young Love‘ finds Adekunle Gold pushing new frontiers with sound, which is steps away from his signature alternative folk sound. On this Sess-produced record, the singer is in love all over again as he worships his love interest. He admits that although the love is still nascent and might not be deeply rooted but he is ready to fly with it. He is deeply intoxicated by the euphoric feeling, singing “If I Pass out, will you wake me with more love?”
With his recent releases, Adekunle Gold is gradually unveiling layers to his personality and sound that we never knew existed and to be honest, it is very exciting to watch. And going by the title of the coming project, “Afro Pop,” it seems we might be in for more.
