After collaborating with Wizkid for their hit single, “Caro” in 2013, and releasing his own sleeper hit, “Ginger” in 2014, L.A.X has since acquired fans from the Nigerian music landscape and that of the diaspora with a little more than a hand full of releases. From the moment he vaulted into stardom, the release of a project was always inevitable; the laws of physics, commerce and streaming platforms guaranteed this.
L.A.X had been teasing his debut, Rasaking—an album title that merges his own name, Rasaki, and the royal title, king, into a comprehensive whole—for the most part of this quarter through his social media account, bill boards and other promotional strategies. The track list, which he shared on his Instagram account a few days ago, features two bonus tracks including “Panana” which he released a video for last week.
Davido, Duncan Mighty, Maleek Berry, Moelogo, Yemi Alade and a few other artists offer guest verses on the album, which will debut on October 26th. 5 days to the release, L.A.X will host listeners to a session of his album at Backyard Bar and Grill in V.I —21st October. The intro track of the album “Ile Aye” has now been made available on streaming platforms.
Check out the tracklist for Rasaking below.
