Following her domination of the African R&B market over recent years, Seyi Shay releases her new record, ‘Yolo Yolo’, to a global audience, bringing with it a fresh and vibrant myriad of flavours and colour.
A daring experimentalist in her music, who draws on multicultural influence and styles, Seyi Shay continues her evolution with the sounds of Highlife, Latin music and Afrobeat to create a warm and vibrant sound for Yolo Yolo. Her ability to write captivating music not only landed her the title of ‘2016 R&B Artist of the Year’ at Nigeria’s Headies Awards but also gives her the depth and aptitude that allow her lyrics and persona to resonate with listeners, irrespective of language barriers.
Produced by DJ Coublon, who delivers an up tempo rhythm with piano melodies, trumpet calls and samba swing, the fascinating record is matched with an equally engrossing video, that was filmed in South Africa, and doused in culture and colour, courtesy of Meji Alabi for JM Films.
Born in the UK, Seyi Shay has carved out a commendable legacy within music having worked with global stars from Justin Timberlake, Harmony Samuels through to grime scene favourite, Chip. She has supported Beyonce and P Diddy on tour and has become one of the most strongly endorsed females in Nigeria, performing at major events and topping the charts with her music.
Preparing to hit TV screens for the new season of hit series, MTV Shuga, Seyi Shay presents her dazzling new record, ‘Yolo Yolo’.
