Electronic AFRO SOUL singer WurlD pushes the envelope of authentic rich AFRO SOUL sounds by creating timeless records inspired by his childhood memories from growing up in Lagos.
The song, the lead promo single, is a very fine mellow ‘palmwine highlife’ style of production that casts your mind back to colonial/pre-independence moments. The love ode got a very solid production touch from young fast-rising Ghanaian Producer, Wakayna.
Wurld makes a perfect pick for this song he “Birthday Song/Palmwine Riddim” by featuring Veteran Ghanaian Hiplife Musician, Zeal, of VVIP fame. Zeal carefully delivers sweet melodies with his voice swooning the virtual lady he serenades in the song; the seamless switch between vocals from Wurld and Zeal makes it a good one to plug on replay, especially if you’re spending the ‘quarantine season’ with your loved one.
“Birthday Song/Palmwine Riddim” is award single off the “AfroSoul” Album released by Wurld on May 15, 2020.
