Lojay & Sarz Team Up With Chris Brown For “Monalisa” Remix

A befitting remix for the song

Since the release of his debut collaborative EP ‘LV N ATTN’ with hit-making producer Sarz, Lojay’s growth has been nothing short of an undeniable success. The 5-track EP featured sultry and distinct afrofusion numbers such as the lead single off the project,”Tonongo”, Wizkid-assisted “LV N ATTN” and standout “Monalisa” which also featured on our mid-year best projects list in 2021.

Just a few days after the release of his project last year, Lojay shared in a NATIVE Exclusive interview the shock he felt seeing people scream “Monalisa” at the club just a few hours after the release of the record. There’s no doubt that “Monalisa” has emerged as one of the biggest songs out of country in the last year. The song has gone on to top the charts both in Nigeria and across the continent for a long period of time.

With just a few months into the year, Lojay is already teasing the release of new singles via instagram live and video snippets. Already this year, he’s featured on NATIVE Sound System’s debut single “Runaway”, and has now tapped American singer, songwriter and performer Chris Brown for the remix of the Sarz-produced record almost a year later. 

Chris Brown is not new to the Afropop scene and he has delivered stellar guest verses on records such as “Blow My Mind” with Davido and “Time N Affection” with Rema. On “Monalisa Remix,” he adds a fine addition to the Amapiano-infused record by laying down yet another standout verse. Singing lyrics such as “For this life me and you chop life, hushpuppi/hope you know you light up my day, girl you know you’re all that i need”, he reminds his love interest about her place in his life and finely matches Lojay’s mid-tempo pace.

Although the remix arrives almost a year after the song’s official release, the new and refreshing energy brought by Chris Brown breathes new life into the track, adding an extra layer of intrigue to an already hit song. It’s clear that Lojay has secured another club-hopping set to soundtrack the summer. Just as we predicted in 2021, Lojay’s commitment to his artistic growth will continue to pay off in the long run.
