Nigerian singer/songwriter WurlD continues to shape the current climate of music radiating from Africa with his highly anticipated new body of work titled "Afrosoul". Showing significant levels of work rate – this being his third full length release in 18 months.
"Afrosoul" emerges as a thrillingly sophisticated and layered collection. WurlD’s soulful vocal performance effortlessly glides over production styles that dip between R&B and Pop, underpinned by deep African rhythms and finely worked Jazz elements. Including the COLORS-backed “Ghost Town” (which has amassed over 180K views in its first week), “Love Nobody” and recent release “Wayo” as well as four other unreleased tracks, the Lagos-born artist has crafted a significant statement of his ability, and with it, establishes himself as a new vanguard of the Afropop movement.
The EP is marked by WurlD’s penmanship, underlining his credits on hits for the likes of B.O.B, Davido and Akon in his precocious career so far. WurlD describes the project as "a fusion of Afrobeat and Electronic/Soul vibes”, and positions the project as one which “further defines my unique sound and ability to connect with my fans in vast regions".
