Bella Alubo, one of the most gifted acts on the rise has released a new single ‘Gbolahan’, her first official single of the year. This comes about four months after she lent her voice to the “Kele•le” project with ‘Loneliest Girl Of The World’ whose proceeds would be donated for COVID-19 aid in the country through RED HOT. This new single also serves as the lead single for Bela’s next project “Popstar” which is expected to drop before the year runs out in her regular fashion of yearly releases.
‘Gbolahan’ is a chilled afrobeats tune that sounds like a love letter to Bella’s love interest who we know to be Gbolahan. Fusing her sultry vocals with Afrobeats cadences, she details her romance with this guy. But thankfully, the feelings are mutual as he is so in love with her, he wants to show her off “want me to meet your boys, want them to see us together/ you want me in your ride/ want us to leave here together,” she relays.
The record produced and engineered by Tuan Malik is sure to get you hooked upon your first listen as it is a record that finds Bella at her finest pop element.
