Afro Pop, Vol. 1

Adekunle Gold

Transcending from an African household name to a global superstar, chart topping Nigerian musician and creative Adekunle Gold marks this chapter of his ascension with the release of his new album Afro Pop Vol. 1, the first of a 2-part series. Foreshadowed by internationally acclaimed singles “AG Baby” and the sensational “Something Different” (which is sitting on 23M streams globally), Adekunle’s third studio album – and first with EMI/Universal - emerges as a fresh approach to the crooner’s sound, more embracing of wider influences while underpinned by the traditional West African sounds that positioned him as a unique force in music. Going from the rock-laced “Exclusive” and the dancehall-leaning “Pretty Girl” to firmly embracing the afro-pop label with sweet “Here For Ya”, he seeks a diverse evolution here. More progressive pop sounds are adopted, a noticeable departure from the high-life sounds of his 2017 Billboard-charting debut Gold. This is the explicit version of this album.
