London-based Nigerian Afrofusion artist and musician RaysMuzik has released an infectious summer jam titled YKTVBZ featuring SK and Sarche.
YKTVBZ comes as a placeholder before the release of RaysMuzik’s long-awaited and highly anticipated debut mixtape Night Owl. Originally produced by renowned Jaylon, YKTVBZ is jolted further to life by burgeoning producer Sparkzy, who adds his Afrobeats and Amapiano sensibilities into the mix.
Speaking on his inspiration for YKTVBZ, RaysMuzik said, “the song put us in a bubbly party mood, YKTVBZ represents a celebration where everyone is having a great time, and it should get you grooving and moving from the minute you press play. The most amazing thing about this record was that we didn’t make it in a conventional way. SK and I met Sarche, while at a friend’s house, then Jaylon pulled up to kick it with us, and in less than an hour, we had recorded the song. Big up to Sparkzy for taking the track to another level.”
RaysMuzik burst onto the UK music scene as one of the fast-rising artists coming out of London’s Afrobeats scene a few years ago, with underground hits like For You, a collaboration with Kojo Funds, and Badda Man. Supported by the likes of BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, The FADER and Complex, RaysMuzik creates captivating Afrofusion music that is a clever mix of Afrobeats, dancehall, hip-hop, and R&B music, with a unique sound that is global, real, and timeless.
