Ahead of his soon-to-be-released EP which he announced officially just a few days ago, Reekado Banks has released a new record titled ‘Need More’ featuring the Jiggy boy Kida Kudz as well as EO. This would be Reekado Banks’ first single release since he got stuck in the lockdown for about six months in Gabon after going there to shoot a music video.
This coming EP “Off The Record” would be Reekado Banks’s first release project since his celebrated debut album “Spotlight” which was released over four years ago. The original plan was to release his sophomore album this year, but apparently, this was also one of the plans disrupted by COVID this year. Now, his fans would have to settle for this 5-track EP which would serve as a prelude to his full-length body of work.
Speaking about the EP in a recent interview with GRM, he revealed that “all the songs on the EP are collaborations. There is not a single song that isn’t a feature. As you already know, “Need More” has Kida Kudz and EO. There’s a song with Wizkid on the EP, another with Tiwa Savage and Mr Eazi.
The crazy thing is I didn’t actually get to sit down with many of the artists, apart from two of them. Tiwa stopped by my house one day and recorded, and I was with Wizkid in his studio when we made the record. Every other song was done remotely and I really love everyone on the project.”
This new record ‘Need More’ is heavily influenced by the UK bounce and it just feels so fitting to have Kida Kudz on the joint. Over the head-bopping beat, the trio croon about having the best of times at a wild all-night party and how that just isn’t enough. The Blaise Beatz-produced bop offers something in its liquid chorus for everybody who listens to it: pining for a blazing romance, a twinge of nostalgia, or a shot of self-praise.
Enjoy the record above.
