AP Teases Upcoming EP Featuring Buju With Single ‘1984 Love’ 

Posted on

AP releases his percussion-heavy new single 1984 Love just in time for the month of love. Inspired by his parents’ loving marriage, the song speaks about the powerful bonds forged by loving relationships with catchy hooks and hard-hitting beats that reveal heartfelt messages and candid introspection on a closer look. In the young artist’s words, “It is dedicated to my parents Andre “Filoh” & Angelica “Angeli”. Just a small token of appreciation as they’ve always been there and supportive of me ever since the first day I chose to follow my musical aspirations.”

Since teaching himself to produce at 14 years old, AP has been crafting his sound which is best described as a blend of Afrobeats, hip hop, and R&B. With writing and production credits for world-renowned artists such as Ycee, Becca Folkes, and Dice Ailes, his ability to incorporate all of his influences into his music makes him one of Canada’s brightest young talents. Following a feature on Hello Canada’s “Seven up-and-coming Canadian musicians to watch in 2021”, AP has since received support from CBC, Elevator Mag and HipHop Canada. Listeners and tastemakers alike across the globe are starting to take notice of his talents. The emerging producer-turned talent is already getting compared to some of Canada’s chart-toppers such as Partynextdoor and Drake.

Distributed by Universal Music Nigeria, 1984 Love sets the tone for his upcoming debut 7-song EP Insincerely AP. With genre-bending production and cross-continental cultural influences, the project features guest appearances from Nigerian pop star, Buju and Nigerian-Canadian songstress, Nyma.
