Hip-Hop Sensation: Barbii Billions Is Back To Take Over What’s Rightfully Hers.

One of the most refreshing things to hear in music is an original style. In a time when everything sounds the same, and there seems to be very little creativity and innovation in music, it stands out even more when an artist dares to be great with their own style of music that they would like to bring to the world. That type of sound is what you get from Barbii Billions.

Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Alison Richardson popularly known as Barbii Billions is a multi-talented rapper and songwriter who has gained acclaim on the music scene for some time and earned a huge fan following across various social media platforms.

She has been a big sensation in the music industry after releasing her first music video “Barbie world” which reached over 250,000 views on Facebook in just a couple days. Because of its popularity, the producer offered her a trip to Paris, France and Amsterdam, Netherlands to shoot another video for her official single “Barbie Girl” which reached over 3 million views on Facebook within a week of posting.

Azu Yeché stirs a soulful serenity with his new single, “Leave Me Now”

AZU YECHÉ

BritishNigerian artist AZU YECHÉ demonstrates exceptional songwriting and musical talent in his latest single, “Leave Me Now.” This profoundly introspective song masterfully delivers a soul-stirring anthem for anyone who has encountered the heartache of a strained romantic relationship. It was entirely self-written and performed on the guitar, encapsulating the perspective of an individual grappling with a partner’s uncertain commitment.

Yeché’s decision to record his vocals in just one or two takes adds an authentic layer of vulnerability while amplifying the raw emotion of the moment. His collaboration with Jim Lawton in the studio has resulted in a subtle and warm production, allowing the song’s soulful core to shine through. Yeché’s musical style represents a captivating blend of soul, gospel, and African influences reminiscent of artists like Michael Kiwanuka, Lianne La Havas, Jordan Mackampa, and Leon Bridges. The slow-paced percussion and serene acoustic strings establish a contemplative ambiance, harmonizing flawlessly with Yeché’s commanding yet relaxed vocal performance.

Lyrically, “Leave Me Now” lays bare a heartfelt plea for genuine love, underscored by Yeché’s emotive delivery. The repeated lines, “If your lovin’ is ruled by someone else, leave me now, oh leave me now, if your lovin’ ain’t as strong as mine, leave me now, oh leave me now,” poignantly express the desperation and resignation of someone choosing to ultimately embrace the painful decision of separation rather than endure a half-hearted affection. His intimate and unguarded approach will enable the audience to deeply sense every pang of honesty expressed through the song.

Leave Me Now” represents a significant addition to any music collection and is a must-listen for enthusiasts of captivating soul music. Yeché, known for his two-part EP, Soul Afrikanah (part one and part two), which delved into his dual identity using folk and soul genres, showcases yet another dimension of his diverse artistry with this single. This further cements his prominent status in the realm of contemporary soul music.

Upon the initial notes, “Oh mi da dey di” establishes an uplifting ambiance.

The orchestral arrangements are particularly striking, weaving through the track with a life of their own. Each instrument plays a distinct role, contributing to a rich tapestry of sound that enhances the song’s hopeful message. It’s a refreshing nod to the Neorock movement, where orchestral elements aren’t just background fillers but integral parts of the musical narrative.

The lyrics imbued with themes of love, self-improvement, and collective endeavor, resonate powerfully, underscoring the profound impact of positivity. “Oh mi da dey di,” by Jeff Vidov, is an emotionally evocative and musically sophisticated song, making it a requisite addition for those seeking to add a touch of hope and high-energy rock to their playlist.
