MOELOGO RELEASED his eagerly anticipated fourth EP titled ‘ME’, last week, a perfect blend of Afrobeat, R&B and Palmwine sounds.
I was reluctant to release these songs but in the end I am comfortable in showing myself while creating magic
The British Nigerian singer-songwriter is regarded as one of the most unique and talented artists in the buzzing Afrobeat and UK music scene. The five-track EP including up-tempo tracks, such as “For You”, “Koshi” and a fusion of R&B sounds on “I Wonder”, “Sango + Oya” and the down-tempo piano ballad “Ugly Part of Love”, is a masterpiece.
Moelogo best describes ‘ME’ as: “feel good music – the kind that you listen to while in any mood and it leaves you feeling better”.
It demonstrates his versatility as an artist, with rich distinct vocals coupled with his compelling storytelling abilities.
Moelogo presents his vulnerability first hand in the new record. He explains: “The EP is titled ‘ME’ as it is an exploration of the versatile yet real Moelogo. For a while I always put other people before myself but this EP is all about me”, adding “People usually expect melancholic music from me but this time I want my fans to feel my vulnerability, appreciation, happiness, freeness and relief”.
Inspired by the ups and downs of relationships, life and love, ‘ME’ is written by Moelogo and produced by Nigerian and UK-based producers: Priime Beats, Happi Music and Sess The Prblm and mastered by Turkish.
Completing his latest record ‘ME’ was tasking but an experience to grow with his fans, admitted Moelogo, revealing: “I normally don’t sing about my most intimate experiences so I was reluctant to release these songs but in the end I am comfortable in showing myself while creating magic and enjoying putting my thoughts together in beats”.
Moelogo’s latest release is the first instalment of a three-part series titled ‘ME #III’, which will explore several aspects that make up Moelego as an expressive storyteller.
He is set to drop two other EPs, “filled with good vibes, some sad songs but most importantly, relatable music” — in his own words, from the series in the coming months.
Moelogo’s new project is preceded by the music videos for “On Me” and “Magic” off his 2019 ‘Magic’ EP.
His expansive discography has earned him critical and mass recognition, including his 2017 smash collaboration “We Could Go Back” with British DJ and producer Jonas Blue, amassing over 44 million streams on Spotify, as well as the BPI-certified hit single “Bally” by Swarmz and Tion Wayne.
