WANDE COAL SHARES LONG-AWAITED REALMS EP

Published

on

Nigerian music icon WANDE COAL, known for his impeccable catalog of afropop classics, has shared his first project in five years, Realms, through producer Screwface‘s Starstruck Management and indie powerhouse EMPIRE.

Known to fans as “Black Diamond” and “King Coal,” Coal has assembled an impeccable set of tracks befitting his wide-ranging talents as a vocalist and songwriter.

One of the most revered African recording artists of the modern era, WANDE COAL is the voice behind afropop essentials “Iskaba” (2017), “So Mi So” (2018) and “My Woman, My Everything” with Patoranking (2015). As Antoinette Isama of Vibe noted in a rare profile on the elusive singer, “Wande Coal laid the foundation of the buzzing musical movement coming out of Nigeria today.” Today’s top afrobeats artists from Davido to Fireboy DML routinely cite him in interviews as a top influence and inspiration. As “Iskaba” producer DJ Tunez stated: “Wande is Africa’s number one vocalist… talent-wise, he’s that guy.”

“Wande has been the secret sauce behind every star we love from Africa,” says Tina Davis, head of A&R for EMPIRE. “It’s time we in America and abroad know his name and his talent. WANDE COAL is a true star and an incredibly talented writer as well.”

Sarz, the influential Nigerian producer known for his work with Wizkid, Beyoncé and Drake, brings the rhythm on “Vex,” a scintillating dance-floor heater that addresses the singer’s critics. With its emotive guitar plucks and tender, romantic lyrics, “Again” (produced by Melvitto and Screwface) is already on its way to becoming an afropop classic, having notched over 30 million streams and a marathon run on key African music charts this year.

The album’s brassy second single “Ode Lo Like,” takes aim at those who take entertainers for simple fools. And “Check,” produced by London’s Lekaa Beats, is a defiant, reggae-tinged anthem sure to inspire singalongs in the car and club. The breezy “Naughty Girl” and the high-energy banger “Ever Blazin” round out the EP, along with a new remix of “Again” featuring Nigerian-American rap star Wale.

In the last year, we have seen Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer Idahams grow into the Lover man that girls adore, following his last project ‘Man on Fire EP’Now he is back with a remix to his Valentine ballad ‘Shima’ featuring Seyi Shay and Peruzzi.

Produced by Idahams himself, “Shima Remix” maintains the message of the original song about a young lover who is skeptical about showing his true emotion to his love interest while Peruzzi was more demanding and expressive about what he wanted from his love interest. Seyi Shay at the other end, takes on the Bonnie & Clyde vibe as she stands by her partner, while holding back so she is not taken for granted in the long run.

Speaking on the choice of collaboration Idahams says, “As a producer as well as a singer it gives me a little edge to view music a bit differently. So I thought Shima deserved a remix that will have a male expression and a female response. So I spoke with my team and we agreed that Seyi Shay and Perruzi will give it that touch. We then sent it to them and they loved it and see how beautiful they came through on it.”
