While you’ll usually struggle to find authenticity within up-tempo party Afropop Hip Hop, with Ivory Blue’s recently released rhythmically arrestive drop “Wole” you’ll find all of the danceable euphoria you could possibly ask for.
The sun-kissed record is an offering of pure soul. Whether you look to the shimmering warm melodies or Ivory Blue’s sweet and sensuous vocals, you’re sure to find a connection with the soundscape. The production also plays a heavy hand in ensuring that Ivory Blue’s pioneering approach to the genre resonates just as it should.
With elements of world music and multilingual vocals in Wole, it’s a refreshing breakaway from monocultural Western Hip Hop.
