Garey Godson Just Wants To Have A Weekend To Remember On ‘Lowkey’

2019 has been a very busy year for Garey Godson and HKMK. All through the year, the pair have been consistent with their releases, bending sonics to their will and churning out impressive records. And now, they have teamed again to release a new sultry banger titled ‘Low Key‘ which is both produced by the pair. This is a follow-up to Garey Godson‘s socially conscious ‘Virtual Love‘, where he touches on the effects of social media on social and romantic relationships. With the frequency of his releases, it would be understandable to perceive that there is a new project on the horizon, although there hasn’t been any confirmation of that yet.

This new record finds Garey inviting his love interest to come to spend time with him over the weekend. He entices her by reminding her of some of their cherished moments while also making promises of her having the time of her life if she comes over. It’s a private affair with no intruders allowed as Garey sings “will you come over for the weekend, we ain’t gotta tell nobody I can keep it on a low, I can keep it on a low key.” The record itself has an overall feel-good but groovy tune to it that makes it finetuned to smash the clubs. Production-wise, it is a delish potpourri of Dance hall, Reggaeton, Trap and Afro-pop elements.

Garey Godson Sparks An Important Conversation On ‘Virtual Love’

Music has always been a powerful tool in driving for social discuss and change. Legends like Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Bob Marley recognised this early enough and laced their music with messages of neo-colonialism, justice, freedom and promotion of world peace all in a quest for a better world for their people. But human problems also evolve with time. And with his latest release,’ Virtual LoveGarey Godson seeks to spark a long-overdue conversation about how social media is rapidly shaping human interaction. And it’s not exactly for the better.

Thanks to technological advances, communication has gotten faster, easier and considerably cheaper. But more isn’t exactly better in this case. Communication has simply degenerated to something less expressive. We’d rather sit leg crossed and text in the comfort of our home than move out to go visit friends and check up on them like we used to.

One intricate part of inter-personal communication often missing in today’s instant messaging is context; often provided by gestures, body postures, eye movements and the ambient energy in face-to-face conversations. And this has an insidious way of affecting our interpersonal relationships. Little wonder why relationships and friendships aren’t what they used to be.

Using his medium as an artist, Garey Godson is tackling this issue head-on with ‘Virtual Love‘, telling a story that almost every youth is familiar with: a story of a relationship turning sour and complicated due to ineffective and efficient communication between the lovers.

Garey Godson Reflects On His Brief Romance In ‘Cairo’

Garey Godson seems to be touring the biggest African cities and has absolutely no problem taking us along. A few months ago, he detailed his romance in Lagos on ‘Private Trips‘ and now, the German-based act further takes us up north in his latest number, ‘Cairo‘. Teaming up with DONMD who assisted with an emotive Travis-type hook, Garey Godson comes through with a modern R&B vibe, punctuated with underlying Spanish guitar riffs.

On his visit to the historically and culturally rich city, Garey comes across a love interest and tries to detail his brief romance with the damsel. He is immediately blown away by her charm and confidence and tries to open up his heart to her. Apparently, she just wants to have a good time and not down for any commitments, as she slowly fades out of his reach. Garey is therefore left with a cherished souvenir from the beautiful city: his memories of her.

Spanning just over two minutes, ‘Cairo‘ is a short but sweet affair that’d most likely have you fumbling for the repeat button immediately it ends. Garey comes through with a polished flow and airtight delivery that projects the soulful realness in his lyrics.

With monthly releases since ‘Chosen One‘ in May, Garey has proven that he has an impeccable work ethic. The frequency of his releases makes it look like there might be a new project on the horizon. And we are absolutely here for it.

Enjoy ‘Cairo‘ above and let us know what you think.

Garey Godson Celebrates His Journey So Far On ‘Tha Juice’

Garey Godson and HKMK have undeniable chemistry. This is obvious from the gusto and quality of their year-long releases. And now, Garey’s new single titled ‘Tha Juice‘ even lends more credence to that claim. This comes just a couple of weeks after he took us on a journey around the city of Lagos in the love number, ‘Private Trips‘.

Over a smooth blend of Trap and R&B coated with an Afropop spice, Garey Godson reflects on his artistic journey. He touches on how he has so far navigated the muddy waters of the music industry an independent artist on the rise alongside his partner-in-crime, HKMK, a German-based producer. “Decided to break all of the doors that were locked or we would just go through the window/ did it myself, no guts no glory/ took my pain and then I turned it into my story,” he sings.

Garey Godson is fast proving himself as a force to watch out for, with each release even better than the last. And with ‘Tha Juice‘, Garey proves himself worthy of our attention.
