After months of teasing, pulling a Wizkid, making us literally beg for the single, and then suspending the initial release date, Paybac‘s ‘Boy Band‘ is finally here. This is the much-anticipated lead single off Paybac’s upcoming solo album, “Cult,” and also his first post-“Alternate Ending” release.
Paybac rapped his ass off on the joint album with Boogey -an album-of-the-year contender by the way- such that he is taking a break off that with ‘Boy Band’ and perhaps “Cult” as a whole. He confidently sings with his raspy voice in his ‘if Fela, the Beatles and Kanye had a baby’ style about his carefree life over soft percussions and organ keys. The song samples ‘Acid Rock‘ by the 70s Afro-Rock Band, The Funkees and is produced by LearnTheCreator.
Opening with the disclaimer “I no dey for gang, this na Boy Band,” the record finds Paybac a rebel, living the life of a rockstar. He might not have all the money in the world, but he makes the best use of what is at his disposal to live solely on his terms, not giving a hoot about anyone’s approval. He wants no troubles either.
The hook is an infectious one that’d have you humming, singing or even shouting along in no time. Enjoy ‘Cult‘ above.
P.S: Paybac, don’t make us choke to death as we hold our breaths for ‘Uwaka‘s video. Thank you. You’re welcome.
