Listen To Crayon’s New Love Number, ‘Shima’

Mavin Records signee Crayon has released a new single titled ‘Shima’. This is his second 2020 single coming after his stunning year opener, ‘Kpano’.

Unlike ‘Kpano’ which was a fast-paced banger directed at the clubs and dancefloors, ‘Shima’ is a mid-tempo afro-pop love number spiced with dancehall elements. Produced by Crayon’s go-to-guy, London the new record finds the singer trying to woo his love interest. He sings a song of praise to her beauty, adulating her with cheesy love poetry.

Listening to this single reaffirms that Crayon is too talented to be overlooked the way he often is. But it’s almost sure that if he keeps this level of consistency to his subsequent releases, the world would have no choice but to listen.

Enjoy the record above.

Crayon Is Bound To Win Over Unbelievers With ‘Kpano’

When Mavin newbie Crayon released his debut and introductory “Cray Cray” EP, a lot of people didn’t know what to make of it. Undoubtedly, the boy had talent but many just couldn’t help seeing him in the shadow of Mavin’s golden boy, Rema.

In May 2019, Crayon was officially unveiled on the Mavins’ Don Jazzy-led posse cut, ‘All is in Order’ that got people asking questions.  Just a couple of weeks after, he also laid down a solid hook for Ladipoe’s fling with Afropop, ‘Based on Kpa’. 

But with ‘So Fine’ a standout cut off his EP, Crayon laid every doubt to rest about his talent, delivering a soothing yet body-moving love number that radiates a level of confidence rarely found in burgeoning acts. And with a label with far-reaching tentacles like Mavin, Crayon’s name was everywhere although the project recorded a middling success. 

Now, the singer has regrouped and is bent on winning over unbelievers with his first post-“Cray Cray” single, ‘Kpano’. 

Like most releases in this streaming-led climate, ‘Kpano’ is a very short but sweet affair, running just over two minutes of magic. On this stunner, the young singer needs no assists as he sounds super-charged crooning about his love interest over a heavily packed Ozedikus beat headed straight for the clubs.

Steaming with overwhelming crossover potential, this might just be the spark Crayon needs to propel him to mainstream consciousness and perhaps dominance.

Ladipoe Joins Forces With Mavin Records Newbie, Crayon On ‘Based On Kpa’

Mavin Records rapper, Ladipoe has teamed up with his new label mate, Crayon on his new record ‘Based On Kpa‘. This record is a follow up to Ladipoe’s ‘Jaiye‘ which was released a few months back.

Ever since the release of his debut tape “Tap About Poe“, the rapper seems to have been experimenting with sounds a bit different with what he was predominantly associated with. He seems focused on expanding his artistry as well as experimenting with new ideas and musical complexities. This is exemplified with his Johnny Drille-assisted ‘Jaiye’ and now with this joint with Crayon.

This single also serves as Crayon’s second official appearance since he signed to the label a few weeks earlier. He had his introductory appearance on the Mavins all-star record, ‘All Is In Order‘ which was released the same day he was unveiled as a Mavin.

Based On Kpa‘ is a love-themed Afropop record which finds a loved-up Ladipoe appreciating his lover and detailing how well he wants to show his affections to her. Produced by Altims, this is a radio-friendly record that is set to expand Ladipoe’s fanbase into the Afropop space.
