The New EP Comes Just Six Months After His Last Album
A truly prolific songwriter and artist, Nigerian R&B star Praiz returns with a new EP ‘To The Moon’. His last album, dropping just six months ago, featured the likes of Wizkid and Burna Boy, now the prodigal talent returns with another set of epic collabs.
Fully produced by Praiz, the full EP looks into themes of love and intimacy in the global lockdown. According to Praiz himself – “due to the pandemic, some lovers get to spend quality time together in isolation, creating a tranquil experience, and this EP tries to capture that feeling”
Regarded fully, as one of Africa’s most exciting and talented new artists, he’s stayed on top in the Nigerian music scene for nearly a decade. This dominance has lead to an iTunes world music chart-topping album, endorsements from Hennessy, MTN and the US state of Minnesota.
The new EP is founded on an RnB vibe, but there’s elements of retro, 80’s style synths throughout. It’s an intimate, soulful look at RnB.
“the project opens with a classic 90’s R&B vibe on the title track ‘To The Moon’ because any kind of love that can take you to another planet is definitely worth experiencing, and for ‘Wings’ with M.I Abaga, I was thinking of how you could let a woman know just how they make you feel, and the vibe on this will make you want to fly literally.
On ‘Like It’ featuring Ice Prince, I took the time to describe everything I like, hopefully the listener can handle it, the art of my writing is in the descriptions, I want them to have a visual of what I’m singing, and that’s the same for ‘Feels’ as well, and maybe because I wrote this in lockdown, which has had me thinking a lot, the track is really just about how feelings in a relationship are important and not to be shied away from. With ‘Red Flags’ featuring Niyola, we explore the hidden secrets and lies that this lockdown can perhaps uncover in our relationships”.
