Larry Gaaga taps Wizkid for psychedelic Afro-Pop single ‘Low’

Posted on

Very few artists have been able to leverage their connections in the industry the way Larry Gaaga has. His reign and relevance last year – his breakout year – was steeped in his importance in certain circles. Following his star-studded breakout hit; Baba Nla, built on these connections came a much needed revamp of 2Baba’s timeless hit, African Queen in Iworiwo. This month, he continues in the same path as he draws Wizkid out of the shadows with a new acoustics driven single titled, Low.

In typical Larry Gaaga style, he leaves the singing to Wizkid whose versatility in the art of carelessly layering engaging lyrics on even better soundscapes comes in handy. With Blaq Jerzee’s busy but psychedelic instrumentals, the duo manages to reinvent the special blend of Afrobeat and Pop that has put a towering number of artists on our radars.

The duo-chromatic video directed by Moe Musa also follows the same plot of a hazy romance and heady feelings dispelled in the song. Larry Gaaga’s record so far is as commendable as his every single track he has released so far and this feature alone is more impressive than his ability to maintain the status quo as an underdog making bigger moves than the average mainstream artist in the industry.
