After a string of releases over the past month, Nigerian Afro-soul sensation, WurlD has released a new EP that encapsulates his sound titled “AfroSoul”. It came as a surprise to many when he announced that he was releasing a project two weeks ago. This was because many were still enjoying the sounds off his well-received “I Love Girls With Trobul” EP with ace producer Sarz. Well, the blue-haired singer is leaving nothing to chance, showing us that has way more where that came from.
This new EP contains seven songs with its production handled by a capable team of Shizzi, Spax, TMXO, Soko7, Kel P, Teflon Zincfence, Wakanyna and Del B. WurlD appears solo on all the song on this EP save for the final track, Birthday Song/Palmwine Riddim that features Zeal.
In ‘Love Nobody’ the lead single for this project, WurlD’s striking pen again collides with a pop radio-friendly melody poised for spins on the airwaves. Produced by TMXO, the song is a soft blend of electro and house with splashes of Afropop elements.
The message of the song is simple; when it comes to woman, WulrD can’t afford to share. Across the record, he details his romance with his sweetheart and the exclusivity they mutually agree to. “I don’t want my baby next to nobody,” he warbles in the chorus.
