Wurld continues to build anticipation for his ‘Love is Contagious’ EP with the project’s release for pre-order. Though the EP won’t be available till the 22nd of March release date, the Fuji-pop singer has shared the cover art and tracklist for the project, debuting his new single, “Wishes and Butterflies”, in the process.
Though previously released singles, “Show You Off”, “Contagious” and “Paranoid” carried traces of his indigenous African influences, for “Wishes and Butterflies”, WurlD taps into his western influences to perform a bluesy folk love song. Over a mix of bass guitar riffs, sweeping organ harmonies and scatting drum riffs, WurlD flexes his vocal range, transforming his wistful romantic feelings into a captivating pop song that can resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the bitter or sweet side of love.
He was quoted in a press release saying “Love is Contagious is a conversation about love, from the infatuation stage to drowning in the emotion to the commitment stage“. Shared as the 5th track from the yet to be released 9-track EP, “Wishes and Butterflies” fits somewhere between both stages as he sings “I Need Love/ That Bitter Sweet Killer Romantic Though I Hate To Love You But I’d Never Find A Greater Kind of Love Baby”.
