A product of different cultures and beginnings rooted in the purity of church music, English singer of Nigerian descent, Zion Foster started out, dreamy-eyed, with a view to entertain back in the era of SoundCloud’s relevance. It’s been more than four years and with a redefined view of music, he’s grown into flexing the topical range and honest vulgarity of a grown man. His music: now a blend of RnB with Dancehall/Afro-pop essence can be deemed Afro-Fusion or Afro-swing and he aims to inculcate elements of the mainstream into his sound and bran. He brings on Zlatan on Carry Me Go, his latest single with the makings of a new-age Afro-pop hit.
Carry Me Go, is a carefree expression of love. Foster merges the dreamy-eyed love-filled tendencies of his teens with the command of a grown man, who wears his heart on his sleeve as he constantly tells his lover to take him away in more loose and engaging words.
Aided by Zlatan’s ability to blend styles and discuss love, while retaining the ad-libs that have become synonymous with him, the record is built on melody-rich production with a high caliber chord progression. The beat is also punctuated by beautiful piano chords and saxophones while a guitar solo defines its final 20 seconds with aplomb.
Carry Me Go is the lead single off Zion Foster’s upcoming eight-track EP titled, Long Live Lagos.
