The Photoshop king and YBNL singer Adekunle Gold is ready to bless music lovers with his debut album titled GOLD.
The alternative music singer debut LP will drop anytime soon, as he has previously unveiled the artwork and title. Hopefully this July the album will hit stores nationwide, the initial mentioned release date was deferred until after the Ramadan Fast.
What should we expect from the GOLD album?
A deviation from the norm
Yes! That is pretty obvious from the GOLD album cover art. The norm in the Nigerian music industry to blatantly display visuals of the artiste’s portrait on album cover artwork. Adekunle Gold is setting a new standard with his album cover art. It won’t be any surprise if he chooses to differ in the overall showcase and launch of his LP.
A showcase of his culture and heritage
It is certain for a fact that the “Sade” crooner will try to exhibit his rich cultural background in his debut offering. The album will be laced with takeaways from the Yoruba culture, it will be evident in his lyrical content, sound, style and delivery. Nothing like a westernesque album.
Originality and creativity
Obviously Adekunle Gold is very versatile and creative especially in graphics design and Photoshop. He will certainly extend his bouts of creativity into the production of his album. Watch out for his very well plotted and catchy lyrics, witty lines etc., unique singing style and delivery as well. Hopefully more slangs with be added to our daily street vocabulary.
Some good good loving
Judging from his catalogue of already released singles, you can tell the “Orente” singer is lover boy. That album should house songs that people especially the ladies can relate to on a deep emotional level. There should songs that will rock weddings, nice “owambe” jams will make us groove and gyrate.
Excellent narratives and storytelling
Just like “Pick Up”, we should except very interesting storytelling and narratives we can all relate to. Stories that are common place in every Nigerian’s life. Expect tales of love, pain and hustle, victory and retrospect. We should see great ingenuity in his song writing.
Stellar features and production
Although the official track list of songs to be contained in the GOLD album has not been made available, we can only hope for the best of features on the album. A collabo with the YBNL boss Olamide should be expected, a duet with fantastic star singer Simi, maybe a Lil Kesh feature and many more. Album production credits will go to Seyi keys, Oscar, B. Banks and Pheelz YBNL in house beat maker. With the speculated line up of producers and featured artistes we hope Adekunle Gold proves that he is truly made of Gold. Get Ready to Pick UP GOLD!
