Listen Up: E.L – Pay Like A Boss

Published

on

Love is at the centre of ‘Pay Like A Boss’, the new single from rapper E.L. On this track, he’s heard assuring his lover of taking care of her like the boss he is “what you go chop? I go pay/If your pocket short, I go upgrade like a boss”. E.L, like his other Afrobeat songs, sings entirely on this record. The beat definitely has the west African mid-tempo vibe which has become an Afrobeat sound, however the mellow grooves are adorned by some live drums. ‘Pay Like A Boss’ confirms the saying that love goes beyond what the heart feels. It involves the ability to be take care of that lover: you should be able to pay for her bills including that of her mum. That’s exactly what E.L is saying on this song, ‘Pay Like A Boss’, another single taken off his forthcoming album “WAVs” (West African Vibes). ]]>

About Run Up:

Born Felix Odei Tinkorang, but known to the world as Run Up. This Reggae/Dancehall/Afro Dancehall artiste boasts of numerous talents with his versatility across various music disciplines. Raised in Zeetown (Sabon Zongo) and having lived most of his life in Kaneshie, it was in Kaneshie that he discovered his passion for music and began honing it.

 

As a child, Run Up was heavily influenced by his father, who played a variety of music genres including Reggae, Highlife, and Hiplife. This early exposure fostered his love for music. During his adolescence, Run Up became captivated by Stonebwoy’s music, idolizing him to the extent of sampling Stonebwoy’s beats for school performances. Around this time, he also met Wanga Lee, an artiste who taught him more about dancehall music. Their relationship between Run Up and Wanga Lee was akin to Vybz Kartel and Popcaan’s music relationship.
