BOJ’s new single, “Awolowo”, is produced by GMK who mixes ambient synth percussion with a catchy drum riff for fans ready to rock steamy dancefloors. With the sultry beat serving as the song’s backdrop, BOJ writes a laid back hook, soaked in confidence inspired by the wealthy lifestyle and the talent he has on the song with him.
“Awolowo” features three verses taken by three of the most exciting new acts from Ghana; Kwesi Arthur, Darkovibes and Joey B. Their vulnerable and cutting lyrics on how wealth complicates their romantic relationships aren’t what you’d expect from such a pop-forward song, but the catchy hook and their smooth flow over the mid-tempo beat make for a refined song that fits in club DJ sets and heartbreak playlists. Lines like, “She Said You Niggas Got Money But I Guess You No Fit Buy Taste/ I Don’t Need Nobody Else’s Validation”, cut to the heart of how spiteful lovers always seem to know the right insecurity triggers to mess with the self-image of even the most confident people.
