Collab of the year.
Omah Lay collabs with Justin Bieber and srops fire track. Just last year The Wire noted that Nigerian Omah Lay was on our top 10 to watch for in 2022. We did not see the singer, songwriter, and producer casually rolling in and dropping the collab of the year with none other than “The Biebs” himself.
A taste of Africa.
Omah Lay gave Justin a taste Africa’s flavour on the “Peaches” (Masterkraft Remix) ft. Alpha P, taking the track into a deeper dreamy afro chill vibe. Justin returns the favor on Omah Lays’s “Attention with some class vocals. The laid-back vocal styling is sweet and pure, and drizzled over sun drenched beats, soaked synths and the captivating hip inducing rhythm of Afrobeat. Omah Lay’s contribution is equally, pure-style, effortlessly cool and nonchalant, and both together sound charming and sincere.
Attention video is a vibe.
The video, casts the 2 stars at a bonfire party, surrounded by mates and dates. It’s a low-key sumptuous visual affair, lathered in warm neon hues, playing like memory of youth past. The faint nostalgia suits the track perfectly as Omah Lay and Justin debate what they are in the mood for, or what can make the moment more perfect.
It’s definitely a tune for summer and so radio, lounge, pool, balcony ready, compliments of a catchy hook. The melody synonymous with Omah’s Nigerian heritage and percussive highlife sensibilities. No doubt this track, at this time, is indicative of the onward global march of Afrobeat as it seduces the worlds ear.
Next month, Omah Lay embarks on his “Boy Alone” world tour, kicking off at the Cocofest in Manchester with stops in Australia, Germany, France, Italy, London. It looks like this is going to be a big year for the artist. We’ll be giving him our full “attention”
