Nigerian singer Yemi Alade, who recently featured on Beyoncé’s ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ album, as one of nine prominent African artists; as a means to add that extra level of authenticity to the African tale. It’s been a long journey, for opportunities like this present itself to the native Nigerian pop-afrobeat star who is currently in the process of releasing her fourth studio album. To-date the singer has amassed an impressive catalogue of songs, that have created a frenzy in nightclubs across the globe. One such recent release in ‘Bounce’. Which was released only two months ago.
Yet Alade’s fans have been somewhat restless awaiting the release of her fourth studio project – Woman of Steel, which was scheduled for release a month ago. As a means to appease her fans the afrobeat star dropped a couple more single releases – ‘Home’ and ‘Give Dem’.
‘Home’ a little slower and more traditional is an emotional piece. Whist ‘Give Dem’ is a more high-energy afrobeat track. Along with these two single releases Alade also released some artwork teasers, a very regal and impressive image of herself dressed in what seems to be the outfit of an Egyptian Empress such as Nefertiti or MerNeith.
It is now anticipated that the ‘Woman of Steel’ album will finally be released on the 30th August.
