Juls may have built his reputation with Afropop releases like “Saa Ara”, promoting traditional African sound. But for his latest single, he embraces his hip-hop sensibilities. “Normal” features U.K. rapper, Kojey Radical who raps over Juls’ psychedelic trap beat with a decidedly Afropop bounce and traditional drum riffs. The menacing percussion baseline inspires aggressive bars from Kojey Radical who brags about his past scars, elevating his game and stunting on old friends; “Long Time Since Minimum Wages/ Long Time Since Man Seen Angels”. Juls also directs the video for “Normal”, using psychedelic filters reminiscent of a Busta Rhymes music video.
