Ending last year on the high with debut EP “Business With God”, the emerging afro-pop act looks to take things up a notch with the all-new single “10K Girls”. Produced by UglyOnit, the dancehall influenced afro-pop number “10K Girls” can be described as Dan Drizzy’s answer to Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable”. According to the singer-songwriter, he penned the song while going through a bad breakup.
Dan Drizzy unapologetically put his frustrations in the song, letting his ex know there are literally 10,000 females ready to jump on his moving train as his career inevitably rises by the day.
Born Daniel Odum, Dan Drizzy grew up between multiple worlds: his family’s deep ties to South Nigerian highlife music, coupled with the formative years he lived in Ghana, his native Nigeria and South Africa has rendered his sound and rhythm incredibly diverse.
With his label, DD Music backing him, and his association with Uptown Energy, Dan Drizzy intends to become a global brand. The Ghanaian-born Nigerian act is steadily growing in stride on the West African contemporary music scene as one to watch out for. He believes a combination of unrelenting creativity, style, raw talent, consistency, and hard work will make this come through in a matter of time.

Bill Abernathy Shines on Personal Journey of Growth on “More” (Single Review)
The lyrics explore the internal conflict and vulnerability of opening up to such a profound level of connection. The mention of “facing these feelings I fear to explore” and “exposing my weakness” speaks to the courage it takes to confront one’s own vulnerabilities and the fear of rejection or loss that often accompanies such openness. This vulnerability is juxtaposed with a longing for a connection that is “more than just friends, more than just lovers,” suggesting a desire for a deep, soulful bond that surpasses conventional relationship labels and experiences.
The repeated references to “searching,” “journey,” and “exploring the shadows” illustrate the internal and external quests for meaning, understanding, and connection in life. These themes resonate with the universal human experience of seeking something greater than ourselves, something that gives life depth and meaning beyond the surface level.
“More” also touches on the idea of loss and healing, with lines like “more than the bridges I burned as I crossed” and “more than the scars disguising my heart,” indicating a history of pain and the struggle to move beyond past hurts towards a more meaningful and fulfilling connection.
The song’s exploration of these themes invites listeners to reflect on their own lives, relationships, and inner desires. It challenges the notion of what love can be and encourages a deeper, more introspective look at how we connect with others and what we truly seek in those connections.
The emotional depth and lyrical complexity of “More” make it a poignant meditation on love, vulnerability, and the human condition’s eternal search for something greater than ourselves. It’s a call to explore the depths of our hearts and to dare to imagine and strive for a connection that transcends the ordinary.
In the realm of music, the song “More” is a delightful celebration of the quintessential elements of folk and Americana genres. It’s expertly adorned with the charming notes of an acoustic guitar, the rhythmic beats of drums, and the melodic tones of a piano, all coming together in a harmonious blend. The guitar is gently strummed, creating a soothing hum that is both comforting and inviting.
This musical symphony is further accentuated by the subtle touches of percussive elements that play in the background, providing an enchanting canvas for Abernathy’s vocals to shine. His voice is warm, intimate, and drenched in sincerity, perfectly capturing the essence of the song’s introspective nature.
“More” is a song that takes you on an emotional journey, evoking feelings of nostalgia and introspection. It’s a reflective piece that prompts a melancholic mood, bringing forth a sense of depth and thoughtfulness. However, despite its somber undertones, there’s an undeniable charm and cheerfulness to it, making it a joy to listen to. It’s a true testament to the beauty of folk and Americana music, a delightful auditory experience that’s sure to leave listeners feeling touched and moved.
