CapitalTKO’s “Feelings” demonstrates how EDM and Afropop can fully embrace one other

Captures the mood of carefree dancing

Genre blending is one of the core values of Nigerian pop music and CapitalTKO has shown his understanding of the sound with his knack for funnelling rap flows and R&B melodies through Afropop’s glossy filter. His latest single, “Feelings”, demonstrates how EDM and Afropop can fully embrace one another as he sings over the catchy beat Soldierbeatz and Reinhard Tega co-produce.

With luminescent synth lines, Afro-house drums and a satisfying drop, “Feelings” captures the mood of carefree dancing before CaptialTKO layers in his romantic themed lyrics, “Baby you should let me love you”. His charming lyrics are not only simple, but they also sound familiar as tributes to the throwback era when R&B songs made for dance clubs. “Feelings” is the newest song in Capital TKO’s rapidly expanding catalogue and it is expected to feature when the 24-year-old artist releases his 14-track ‘The Capital’ album later this year.
