Building his reputation as one of the most exciting breakout names coming out of Nigeria, singer-songwriter WurlD releases his new track “Wayo”.
Following a serious entrance into the ether with his debut COLORS performance last week (125K+ views and climbing), WurlD now showcases on “Wayo” an exciting vocal finesse and the kind of innate musicality that has brought him early critical acclaim across the likes of THE FADER, VIBE and OKAYAFRICA.
The soft, lilting saxophone envelops the Afrocentric instrumental to create a track that feels timeless and international, yet very much stamped with WurlD’s signature. Together with the “Ghost Town” track featured on COLORS, it points to a thrilling maturity and international sophistication to be expected on WurlD’s debut EP Afro Soul due May 15.
WurlD feels set for a milestone year as he crosses deservingly into global consciousness. With the natural charisma and style to balance what is a thrillingly layered musical talent, it’s set to continue the intrigue around the petrol blue-haired young star.
