After over ten years as a Media presenter, Pearl Cardy’s debut in the music industry came to us as quite a surprise when she released her first single, Wait. But just like she kills it in Showbiz, she showed us that behind the beautiful face and captivating media voice is a lady with so much musical talent waiting to show it off to the world.
After the success with Wait, she releases a new single titled Far, as a follow-up to her musical conquest.
At the moment, a minimalist sound, guided by precise songwriting, authentic production, and delivery are the main ingredients that make up the contemporary Afrobeats music that we love and these are the ingredients that popular media personality and singer, Pearl Cardy, channel on her latest single, Far.
Riding on a wavy instrumental made up of drum loops, Pearl pours out her heart in bass sophisticated tunes as she expresses love to her lover telling him how she’ll stand by him in all conditions. She further goes on to spice up the song with popular Yoruba lyrics: “boya lo ma de le, nibi lo ma kusi”, describing her extent of loyalty.
Dexterously switching her delivery between English, Yoruba, and Pidgin, Pearl Cardy’s concise lyrics welcome listeners into her mind and resonate with them on a very relatable level.
In the video for the single, Pearl transforms the simmering ache of the song into a display of lustrous desire. She dominates the glare of the cameras, displaying her carefree energy.
