In the lines of the music, he addresses a lady who wants all of the lavish things of life, but she doesn’t appear to have the bare essentials of her life together. Stream it below.
On Wednesday, British-Nigerian singer-songwriter Moelogo, his team, and I had a late lunch at the Electric Diner in the Notting Hill area of London. Next, we went over to the studio for a recording session. Two talented British rappers RXXXVN (pronounced ‘Roxanne’) and Double S were there when we arrived. Ahead of that experience, Moelogo’s publicist emailed the ‘Magic’ EP to me. I won’t stunt. I liked what he had to say in every record, but ‘Mad’ made me the happiest. As soon as it came on, I stood up to dance. There aren’t many records by artists that take me to that point, so when it does, I know what’s going to translate well with specific audiences.
His EP, ‘Magic’, is the follow-up to his collaboration (‘We Could Go Back’) with an Essex, England-born producer-DJ named Jonas Blue, which has earned over forty-four million streams on Spotify. This eight-track effort marks the third extended play release by the thoughtful artist.
With this EP, I wanted to create something magical. It’s a body of work that is about soul searching. It’s a progression from ‘Ireti’ and also ‘Shine Your Light’, so it’s not just about my own stories but other people’s stories too. I wanted to say what other people might want to say, or hear, but don’t have the platform to do so. This EP is special to me, which is why I decided to release it on my birthday. I thought the best gift I could have is to have people celebrate with me.
In the lines of the music, he addresses a lady who wants all of the lavish things of life, but she doesn’t appear to have the bare essentials of her life together. In short, all of it doesn’t add up, so he’s pleasantly calling her out. The lesson here is that you should work for what you want in your life. Rightfully earning something is an achievement to some groups of people. I happen to be from those groups. Stream the record, so you can hear the madness he talks about in his song. The young king is making his rounds, taking the necessary steps, and putting in the work with his team to be next up.
