ASA “V” ALBUM| FREE ZIP DOWNLOAD
RELEASE DATE: February 25, 2022
Paris-born Nigerian Afrobeats singer and songwriter, Aṣa, has released her long-awaited fifth studio album tagged “V“.
Aṣa’s fifth album embodies a refreshing blend of Pop, Afrobeats, neo-soul and R&B. This colourful meeting of genres, styles and generations pairs the singer-songwriter’s signature smoky vocals with breezy explorations of love.
“V is about happiness, love, friendship and lots of joy,” she tells Apple Music.
“It’s fresh and modern, but it’s also something you’re familiar with. I’m simply expressing being with the flow of things. That sense of flow is influenced by both a sense of freedom and her locale. Writing these songs at home meant the soil, air, food and sun all made contributions to the creation of this album” she says.
“The album was written entirely in front of water and that definitely contributed greatly to the songs because I was so calm. That solitude I love is something you’ll hear a lot on V.”
The 10-track album features guest appearances from top Nigerian acts including Grammy award winner Wizkid, Nigerian highlife duo The Cavemen, and Ghanian artist Amaarae.
