It’s your boy Eazi returns with his trademark Banku Music sound on his latest single, Personal Baby, the second single from his as-yet-untitled, forthcoming debut album — a project fans have been eagerly awaiting for nearly a decade.
Audio for the track, which was produced by Grammy-winning Nigerian hitmaker Kel-P (who has worked with the likes of Burna Boy, Wizkid, Angelique Kidjo), premiered on Apple Music’s The Dotty Show, whilst the futuristic music video, directed by Ademola Falomo, accompanied the release. “The video goes from lovey dovey to darkness,” Mr Eazi explains. “It’s those extremes I’m trying to capture.”
A moody love song co-written with afropop superstar Teni, Personal Baby re-imagines the smooth, mid-tempo Banku Music sound that Mr Eazi defined with hits like Skintight and Leg Over, but with a slightly deeper, darker edge. The jam comes on the heels of Eazi’s recently released single, Legalize.
