Bacardi & Star Signs – Learn The Lyrics

After the video for falling, Odunsi has released a lyric video for his song with Runtown star signs. 

Just like he did with his official video for falling, Odunsi is giving fans the luxury of singing along to the music while enjoying aesthetics with this video. The video, directed and edited by Braylen Dion shows us the carefree, almost faerie-like vibe of the girl that likes to party, drink Bacardi straight and talk about star signs.

It’s nice to see artists interested in engaging their audience like this, and we do hope others jump on this bandwagon.

 

Falling – Odunsi

We heard rare. We’ve felt the 80s come back to life, now it’s time for the visuals.

Odunsi has released the first video of his debut album rare. and once again, we see how this artist is taking control of his aesthetics directing this video shot on location in Dubai with Ademola Falomo and co-directed by Santi. The official video for falling was released two days ago and it delivers greatly on the 80s Disco vibes complete with outer space background effects and glitter streamer; the lyrics are even included for more period accuracy.

There’s more where this came from. We know.

A rare. Debut – Odunsi’s First Album

Pulling off a debut project that will make history books is hard. Making music that is inter-generational is even harder, but Odunsi has done it. The singer’s debut album premiered on the PGM Live radio show last Wednesday, an amazing private listening party on Thursday and the official public release on all platforms finally came through on Friday.

rare. is Odunsi’s first debut and it’s taken this vanguard two years to come through with this project. While some fans were mad that it’s taken their fave so long to put out a compilation, one listen to this superstar quality debut and you’ll understand why. The project samples the Funk/Disco sounds of the 70s/80s and some spins on 90s Hip-Hop and this has to be the best spin on the sounds produced this year and with such a superb blend of sound, you can’t really hate Odunsi’s music. With rare. we see Odunsi take sole charge of his brand aesthetic, adding to the redefinition of what it is to be an African artist in this age.
