Published

on

Queen of Afropop Yemi Alade kicks o0 Spring with a pre-summer anthem

My Man is a melodic symphony that explores love, intimacy and loyalty.

Yemi is joined by Jamaican dancehall singer Kranium, the star behind the hit,
“Nobody has to know”. The collaboration brings together the propulsive rhythms and a jazz signature that is often found in Afrobeats paired with a mid-tempo melody and heart beat rhythm that is often the core of
Jamaican reggae music.

“I kept getting asked what my ideal man would look like during interviews. I admit, it’s easier to follow my imagination and describe physical features of “Prince charming” but in reality, my ideal man goes beyond physical appearances, so I decided to write a song about what a real woman in the real world desires, Yemi Aiade shared.

With four albums, one EP and many smashes such as Johnny, Ferrari,’Na Gode or Bum Bum under her belt, Yemi Aiade is the No 1 Afropop female artist on the African continent.

Nigerian born Afropop/R&B artiste, singer/songwriter, composer, actress and entertainer, she is popularly referred to as “Mama Africa” by virtue of her electrifying stagecraft, music, edgy and unmatched style, evolving African style and her bi-tribal descent.

This single is the first release of the year and sets the tone for what Alade’s fans can expect from her as she continues to experiment with new sounds and collaborate with inspiring talent from across the globe.

‘My Man’ is set to be a hit among the diaspora as well as within the home countries of Yemi Alade and Kranium. The fusion of Afrobeats with the reggae sound is a cross-collaboration that brings together lovers of music and in the case of My Man’ lovers of love.

Kranium bears it all in his music when he speaks about his encounters with women, and that’s the whole essence of this song,” Yemi explains.

Yemi Alade is the first African female Afropop star to hit over 100 million views on Youtube;e and VEV0 with her Smash hit single “Johnny”, which is now the most viewed video from an African female pop star ever. In July 2019, Yemi Aiade was featured on “Don’t Jealous Me”, a track from Beyoncé’s compilation album The Lion King: The Gift.

My Man is available across all streaming platforms from 8th April and fans can expect, “more music and watch out for me as I tour the world. I’ll be coming to a city near you, live in concert, ” says Yemi.

After delivering stand-out freestyles all year on L.A. Leakers, The Come Up Show, and most recently Fire In The Booth, the Boston rapper, Millyz has just shared his new album Blanco 5 along with a new video for “Opt Out” (feat. Fivio Foreign). On “Opt Out”, Millyz flexes the versatility of his style by joining the leader of the Brooklyn drill movement Fivio Foreign for a worthwhile collaboration that naturally weaves together their distinctive sounds. The visual for “Opt Out” are as exhilarating as the track itself, showing Millyz & Fivio surrounded by a rowdy parking lot party with their respective crews and footage of Millyz’s surprise appearance at Fivio’s show in Boston this month, further displaying the familiarity between the two rappers.

Across 17-tracks, Blanco 5 highlights the outstanding growth Millyz has exhibited in his decade-long tenure in hip-hop, perfectly showing the forthright effort he’s put in sharpening his pen and crafting his candid songwriting abilities. Millyz links up with Styles P for the introspective cut “Sacred” where the two expert bar-spitters reflect on the ambivalence of fame and success over a smooth, well-tuned instrumental. Although Blanco 5 includes appearances from hip-hop icons like his mentor of a decade Jadakiss on the previously released single “Rearview Mirror” & the aforementioned Styles P, Millyz also brings along his deep-rooted ties to the new generation to the album with outstanding features from Fivio Foreign, Mozzy, Dave East, Peezy & more. After mercilessly working in hip-hop for over a decade, Millyz finally finds his well-earned moment in the limelight with the release of his new album Blanco 5.

Millyz has been lighting the internet on fire all of 2022 with freestyles on L.A. Leakers, The Come Up Show, and most recently Fire In The Booth. Last year things started to really heat up for him with the release of his last project Blanco 4 in 2021. The album had a string of successful singles including “Emotions” featuring G Herbo, “Benny Blanco”alongside expert bar spitter Benny The Butcher & “Hopeless” with Jadakiss. Leading up to the release of Blanco 5, Millyz released the singles “Ashes In The Maybach” featuring Mozzy, “Love/Hate” (feat. Gio Dee), “Closure” and “Rearview Mirror” (feat. Jadakiss). After catching the attention of mainstream tastemakers and developing a committed fanbase through his non-stop work ethic and dedication to hip-hop, Millyz is ready for the world to see his full vision & potential with the release of Blanco 5.
