She just launched her new website, IAmOmawumi.com, and with that the annoucnement that she will be dropping a new single, Play Na Play with the legend, and Grammy award winner, Angelique Kidjo. It is produced by Cobhams Asuquo. Yes you’re hearing it right here.
Posting a message on her website, she said:
“Thank you for joining me on the journey this far. The last few months have been a huge blessing. As you may have read, we welcomed our son Fareed. I’m still basking in euphoria, but now I’m excited to get back to music. My new single introduces the coming together of Omawumi: wit, wisdom, and storytelling, laced in live music. I’m blessed with the opportunity to work with my idol Angelique. Dreams do come true! I hope you enjoy, “Play Na Play,” as much as I do.”
The song will be released before the year runs out, and the video is already in the works. The video was shot on location in New Jersey.
Check out some behind the scenes pictures from the video shoot snagged from her website:
