Seyi Shay Is Confident That Her “Weekend Vibes” Is Exactly What You Need

For this weekend and other chill times

Afropop is all about riding waves that borrow sounds from more established musical genres. One of the pioneers of the recent trends in the soundscape, KrizBeatz is really doubling down on that classic South American afro-latino vibe with his recent string of successful releases. Seyi Shay joins the league of artists like Mr Eazi, Tekno and Runtown who are helping the producer take this sound mainstream.

A few years ago, “Weekend Vibe” would probably be called alternative high-life but we’ve grown to accept that trumpets, kick drums, claps, pianos and guitar strums when added together at the right progression can make for very good Afropop songs. Mix that with Seyi Shay’s vocals and you get quite the treat.

Seyi Shay singles have a prominent dance hall rhythm regardless of the theme. Her latest release, “Weekend Vibes” has lyrics that suggest that it would make for good background music to set the mood for sex but the tapping beats and guitar strums only make you want to move your feet. Then again it’s the weekend so dancing shouldn’t be ruled out of possibility.
