Release of the week
On his third studio album, Praiz shows off his essence in a unique and creative addition to his discography in the project "Reckless". "I wanted to make Records that shows Africa is more than just Afrobeats". Praiz restlessly writing and recording right up until it's release and is a typical from an artist who has delighted in surpassing expectations. The idea of time when you're listening to certain songs, especially as a creator, it's like, "are people going to still jam to this in 20 years?". I was thinking about time - or, rather timelessness - as I created the music that would make up my 3rd album which traverses both genre and era; there are hints of '80s maximalist pop, contemporary R&B next to traditional soul, kizomba and Afrobeats. It's emblematic of the Nigerian born singer, producer and songwriter's continued expansion of his sound and style. The body of work embodies emotions of different facets and easily transcends borders. The album's collaborations do the same, roping in the likes of Seun Kuti, Yemi Alade, Alikiba, Ricky Rich, Djodje amongst others.
