Nigeria's Adekunle Gold Drops 'Something Different' Just in Time for Summer
Evan Dale // May 1, 2020
Nigerian superstar, Adekunle Gold is a prominent figure of the West African Cultural Renaissance imbedding Nigerian and Ghanaian music and fashion into the global spectrum at a blinding rate. With a broad range of stylistic diversification from which to explore his musicality, AG Baby has a canon of recent hits that shine him in a light as a vocalist whose sound is applicable to classic Afrobeats and Highlife aesthetics, to even softer acoustic renditions, and to Something Different.
His newest single is a fitting title for a track as mellow and laid-back as it is still true to the foundations of all his work to this point. Best for slow Summer car rides, rooftop sunsets, and beach bar slow dances, Something Different is the kind of warm-weather anthem romantics needed heading into the Summer months It’s also the kind of transcendent highlife hit the world is always begging for from Adekunle Gold who is hopefully – with so many timeless tracks over the last year or so – working on a larger, signature project.
