Nigerian singer, Lojay has released his extended play titled ‘GANGSTER ROMANTIC’ EP via Koratori Recordings.
On GANGSTER ROMANTIC, Lojay redefines himself on the 7– track follow-up to the well-received joint EP LV N ATTN with renowned producer Sarz.
The artist known for smooth, emotive vocals and sharp lyricism dives deeper into his craft, mining the edges of his darker emotions and expressing personal vulnerability in several melodic confessions.
The creative result is a moodier world, brimming with bouncy direction and effortless energy as he bares himself, leaving nothing behind.
The EP opens with the stripped-back, heartfelt ‘YAHWEH’, a passionate ode to a love interest, describing the emotions she inspires in him.
Next comes P.PRIME produced ‘LEADER’, the up-beat, confident track with memorable toplines and immensely catchy hooks, which Lojayoriginally released last September.
This is followed by feel-good ‘MOTO’, the latest single he revealed from the project, produced by Lojay himself, with the production augmented by industry heavyweights Elementz and AOD.
Track four is ‘CANADA’, an impressive Amapiano number produced by South African pioneers DJ Maphorisa & Kabza De Small, which Lojay revealed in November last year.
The penultimate track ‘AVALABU’ is another fast-paced, Amapiano-inspired hit, with catchy vocals and diverse drum programming; the perfect way to finish off what is a diverse and easy-to-listen EP.
The final track on the EP is ‘OVA’, an upbeat tune packed with melodic synth lines and syncopated drum rhythms.
GANGSTER ROMANTIC is the latest addition to an already impressive discography, with the body of work set to establish Lojay as one of the most compelling and unique artists within the Afrobeats scene right now.
