AV Shares New Single “Jiggy”; Inks Record Deal With Warner Music

Ahead of his forthcoming debut EP

2021 breakout star AV rose to mainstream prominence last year, following the release of his debut single “Big Thug Boys,” a catchy Afropop record that took over the airwaves and went viral on TikTok. A few months later, AV hit back with a new single titled “Confession” which equally portended his global ambitions. This all culminated with the singer earning top spots on our Fresh Meat (now uNder) column before the year ran out.

This year, AV isn’t skipping a beat as he’s already inching closer towards the global powerhouse he is capable of becoming. Announced today, AV has officially inked a new recording deal with Warner Music, Sweden. With the backing of the industry giant, the Nigerian singer now shares his new single, a refreshing tune titled “Jiggy.”

Produced by Krizbeatz, “Jiggy” is an uptempo track which sees the artist performing at his best. Over the song’s Dancehall-inspired production which is intermingle with Afrobeats drums and Highlife sensibilities, AV sings about the euphoric feeling of having a new crush whose heart can’t be trusted. On the pre-hook, he chants lyrics such as “girl me I don jogodo, shack ogogoro/wetin I dey find dey inside your sokoto”, teasing his love interest about the effect she has on him when he’s inebriated. 

The new single which arrived today is the first single of the artists forthcoming debut EP ‘Thug Life’ which is set for release next month. AV continues to bring his A-game when it comes to showcasing his abilities as a songwriter and performer, and “Jiggy” is no different. It’s clear that AV is in it for the long run and with a new deal from one of the most prominent labels in the game, we can only hope he keeps delivering hits with his palpable charisma.
