Bad Boy Timz Is A Smooth Operator on New Single 'MJ'

Following their latest music video release for Cough (Odo) with Kizz Daniel nearing 30 million views on YouTube, with the single itself amassing over 150 million digital streams, revered independent label EMPIRE are not resting on their laurels when it comes to their new compilation album Where We Come From (Vol. 1), as they open up 2023 with a brand new music video for another fan-favourite track from the project, Faya by rising Nigerian pop star Bad Boy Timz.

Shot in the heart of Lagos Island in Nigeria, and directed by Ahmed Mosh, who has worked with CKay, Blaqbonez, Ruger, and more, the music video for Faya brings the infectious jam further to life with its vibrant colours and visual storytelling about young love, romance, and companionship. It also captures Bad Boy Timz in his artistic element as he shows off his infectious personality and captivating performance prowess. Having turned 23, Bad Boy Timz has entered his ‘Jordan Year’ in flying form with the glorious Faya, produced by Semzi, setting the pace with over a million digital streams.

Known for his massive hits like Move, and Loading, and more recent bangers like Big Money, Bad Boy Timz burst onto the scene only three years ago, with the breakthrough jam Check And Balance, which he then followed up with the TIMZ EP, his self-titled debut EP that accumulated over 10 million streams in that year. The last two years have seen the fast-rising star grow from strength to strength, including winning the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award at the Headies Award, amassing over 80 million global streams, and charting on the Billboard US Afrobeats Song Chart, among other achievements.

EMPIRE’s Where We Come From (Vol. 1) compilation project is a body of work that was created during the writing camp at EMPIRE’s headquarters in San Francisco directly following their first showcase ‘The New Africa’ during SXSW, where the crowd saw performances by BNXN fka Buju, Cheque, Fireboy DML, June Freedom, L.A.X., Wande Coal, and other Afrobeat trailblazers, who are signed to EMPIRE.
