Waje taps Yemi Alade for new single “I’m Available”: Listen

Waje may not have delivered on the album she promised fans earlier this year, but that’s not to say she hasn’t been working hard towards remaining in rotation anyway. Recently, she shared a new single “I’m Available” featuring Mama Africa, Yemi Alade, the third single the singer has released this year and hopefully the last precursor to that album everyone’s been waiting for.

 “I’m Available” begins with a synth sample of Nico Mbarga’s “Sweet Mother” before picking up pace, eventually taking shape, as clean drumming synths cut through to provide a melodic counterpoint. Unlike most of Waje’s more R&B leaning earlier work, “I’m Available” leans heavily towards the dizzying network of cross-rhythm, we’ve come to associate with Yemi.  Furthering the narrative of Yemi’s versatility and ability to easily ride on a wave of different genres. As she does on “I’m Available”, where they both sing on the theme of  Love.
