Nigeria-born, UK-based singer-songwriter PapaRaZzle has shared a new single titled Lost, an intimate fusion of AfroPop and RnB which speaks to feelings of isolation whilst chasing one’s dreams and aspirations, and the toll this takes on one’s mental health.
Produced by Lagos-based producers Kryptian Icon and Ohnorr, it follows the recent release of the artist’s double-single Sip On It / Thank You. Written from a place of truth, vulnerability and undeniable strength, Lost is a song that highlights raw emotions, exploring themes around the feeling of not wanting to give up on something you love no matter how hard it gets, the feeling of being lost and losing someone, and the feeling of seeking guidance in the midst of doubt.
Sharing his thoughts on the process of making the song, PapaRaZzle explains:
“The process of creating Lost was very therapeutic for me, as every lyric, every melody and sound came from a very vulnerable place, and being able to create this art provided some level of healing for me. Recording this single in Liverpool, I felt emotionally connected to the song and hope my fans feel the same.”
As an Afrocentric artiste, he has proudly rocked African attire both on stage and in his visuals as a salute to his heritage and artistry, both of which reflect in the quality of his music and performances.
Lost is evidence of an artist who continues to grow with every release. Check out the song below:
