Listen to Ladipoe’s new single, “Running” featuring Fireboy DML

The lead single from his upcoming EP, 'Providence'

After spending the 2010s figuring out his potential as a prodigious rap artist, Ladipoe has been racking up milestone accomplishments. Last year, he provided one of the ubiquitous anthems for the lockdown blues with the Simi-assisted “Know You,” for which he went on to win his first awards at the Headies. In the summer of renewed hope and reopening, Ladipoe struck again with “Feeling,” the summery Buju-assisted cut that instantly went on to enjoy smash success.

In that time, Ladipoe also achieved a personal milestone: the birth of his first child. He announced the news in a recent Instagram post, where he also hinted at the impending arrival of a new project, which has now been confirmed. Providence, Ladipoe’s new EP will be out on November 3rd. It’s the follow-up to his 2018 debut album, ‘Talk About Poe’, and last year’s brief compilation tape, ‘Know You’, which housed its titular smash hit and three other well-known pre-released singles.

Ahead of the EP, Ladipoe has shared the Fireboy DML-assisted “Running” as its lead single. Helmed by Andre Vibez, the song’s production comprises bouncy bass, a buzzing bassline and glistening keys, set a feel-good backdrop for both artists to indulge in escapism, reflect honestly and boast confidently. Fireboy sings the hook with an earnest candour, also sharing the second verse with Ladipoe, while the rapper delivers a typically lived-in first verse that roots the song. Providence is set to feature “Running” and five new tracks, with features from fellow Mavin colleague Rema and Ghanaian superstar Amaarae.
