Afropop reaches feverishly ensnaring heights when it takes a romantic tune. And for Timz’s new single, “Number 1”, he casts passionate lines, in hopes of capturing a lover’s affection and listeners’ romantic sentiments. Ozedikus produces the synth layered mid-tempo beat for Timz’s emotional confessional. While his vocals, lit in wedding night afterglow, are alluring, it’s the clever interpolation of Afropop classics such as Olamide’s “Omo to Shan”, Wizkid’s “Naughty Ride” that makes “Number 1” such a good Afropop song; Instantly familiar, lightweight and memorable.
The celebration of love may be a hard sell in December, but Timz has released the music video for “Number 1” and the theme as you’d expect is romantic. David Anthony directs the video, following a couple, played by Timz and a model, as they revel in their attraction while cuts highlighting the beauty of the China Town set adds the red touch to the sultry video.
