ALBUM : DJ NEPTUNE – GREATNESS 2.0 [Album Download]

Renowned International Eva – Blazing DJ Neptune releases his sophomore album titled “Greatness 2.0” today, November 26, 2021. This is coming in after the success of the project’s lead singles; ‘Only Fan‘ (feat. Lojay, Zlatan) and ‘GAZA‘ (feat. Patoranking).

Since emerging in the early 2010s with his maximal interpretation of Afropop that weaved together R&B, hip-hop, and dancehall influences, DJ Neptune has had a constant presence at the forefront of the genre’s vaunt to global popularity, while trying to imbue popular music from west Africa with his more experimental ideas.

The success of 2018’s Greatness was a vindication for Neptune’s innovative approach, and on his follow-up, the Lagos-based artist pairs his technical virtuosity with hit-making gravitas.

Greatness 2.0 Album” consist of 16 tracks and features artistes; Laycon, Waje, Ladipoe, Mr Eazi, Cheque, Blaqbonez, Rema, Patoranking, Simi, Peruzzi, Focalistic, Adekunle Gold, Joeboy, Omah Lay, Lojay, Zlatan, Bella Shmurda, Kofi Jamar, Jeriq, Phyno, Stonebwoy, Yemi Alade, One Acen, Harmonize & Anjella.

Across an album that kicks off with the aspirational messaging of “Rise Up” and closes with the loved-up swag of “Nobody,” DJ Neptune (Imohiosen Patrick) engages his phalanx of collaborators in meaningful conversation.

About the first track – Rise Up featuring; Laycon, Waje & LADIPOE, DJ Neptune said

With ‘Rise Up,’ when I got the beat, it sounded like what a Jay Z would want to get on. I told myself, ‘Okay, this is going to be a classic record. I need to make a classic record out of this.’ So I sent it to Waje and I told her, ‘Listen, the direction I want to go with this is that everyone in life has obstacles. We have our ups and downs, but regardless of whatever situation you’re going through at that particular time, always have it at the back of your mind that one day you’re going to rise up.’ She did her thing and the next person I sent it to was Laycon. Laycon had just won Big Brother Nigeria—that’s like a serious rise up for him. I needed to balance this with another rapper; Ladipoe came through with his own style and did his thing. We came in with the Kabusa choir, just to give it that extra feel.

And according to him also the last track on the album Nobody featuring Joeboy & Mr. Eazi- is from [2020]. I mean the song came and did so much damage. Shout out to everyone who helped me make history with ‘Nobody.’

MUSIC : CHEQUE – BRAVO [ALBUM DOWNLOAD]

Superboy Cheque drops his Sophomore Album titled “Bravo”.

Cheque offload his aesthetics project tagged Bravo feauring prominent artist like Olamide “LOML” Fireboy “History” Ayra Starr “Dangerous” and Jackboy “No One Else”.

Cheque ultimately found his sound after experimenting across various music genres that culminated into his own musical evolution, making him the charming, dynamic and grounded artiste that he is today. After the release of his debut EP “S.O.O.N” (Something Out Of Nothing) which featured DML, Virus Zamorra and Chinko Ekun, Cheque became unstoppable as he continually released self-acclaimed hot singles such as “Zoom“, “History” (feat. Fireboy DML) and recently “LOML” ft Olamide off his highly anticipated album “Bravo“.

Cheque fuses rapping and singing in an iteration of Afro-fusion that draws from pop, cloud rap, R&B and emo-trap. “It’s generally Afro-fusion but with trap and pop music,” Cheque tells Apple Music. “I love hardcore rap but I’m determined to put melodies around it and sweeten it.” His melodic take sees him provide motivation (“Rockstar”), show his friends appreciation (“Change”) and express his affection (“Sweet Love”), while providing insight into his personality. “Everything I say in my music is who I am,” he says. “One of the things I try to conquer with my music is to never be ashamed of what I’m saying. It’s why I named the album Bravo—it’s brave.” Here, he talks us through the album, track by track.

Rockstar
“Coming from a place of struggle, that’s definitely what it felt like when I made this song. Don’t bully me, don’t look down on me… let me shine! Rockstar is basically about overcoming. I know a lot of people are going through a lot of things and when you hear this, I don’t want you to feel like you can’t get something from this. I come from a place where they say, ‘Please don’t try this trap music’. It almost brought me to a place where I didn’t want to do it anymore but I realised that this is who I am and no matter how I tried to go the other direction, this is very genuine.

Superboy Cheque tagged the Intro Rockstar

Dangerous (feat. Ayra Starr)
“I recorded this song just after I dropped the Razor EP. It was more of an R&B vibe at the initial stage. I loved it! It was so sexy and was exactly what I thought about a partner. When I changed it up I wanted it to be more Afrobeats to get this balance. It just felt like I needed to get someone [to feature], to feel like I’m talking to somebody else. Our female artists in Nigeria are really coming up really fast now so I just had to call Ayra.”

Call Me Baby
“When I hooked up with the producer [Lazybeatz] I just knew what to do instantly. When he gave me the beat the melody just came to me and I felt it. It was one of the few beats that I had from him that didn’t make me wanna go hustling—it made me want to go in that love direction. I was like, ‘What’s the title of this song, “Call You Baby?” Nah.’ I wanted to have a final response, I wanted her to reply to my question in the song.”

Call Me Baby

No One Else (feat. Jackboy)
“When I started music, the vibe I put on “No One Else” was my real self before I discovered and started to do emo-trap. When I got this song, I was like ‘Okay, I didn’t get affected by people saying don’t do trap’. I was like, ‘If I have this kind of song maybe I should get somebody that’s not from here’—so I got [American rapper] Jackboy He got me the verse and it’s the fastest verse I’ve got.”

LOML (feat. Olamide)
“I had a complete song, and I just tried to get the best person I could think of at that point that could really blend with me on the song. It was Olamide; it’s always fantastic to get love from the OGs. I was just learning to record Afrobeats, it wasn’t something I was doing before. I was just thinking about the perfect couple and how to express love to somebody who’s been there for you.”

Blind
“This was definitely a personal experience. Everything I’m saying in this song is exactly as it happened—no words were minced. I’m a real homie that gets shorties, but I met somebody that made me feel like ‘Okay, I’m not gonna get up to no more—we gotta stay focused and get serious.’ It turned out to be a very terrible idea!”

Body
“This is the oldest song on the album. I was still of a clear mind at the time I recorded this song; no one had broken my heart. It’s just a cool, sexy vibe worshipping a woman’s body. Whatever you have is great, we love it.”

History [Cheque & Fireboy DML]
“I didn’t think twice. Fireboy is one of my oldest friends so I didn’t really stress myself too much. I was just looking for a guy that really had history with me. I finished the song but I didn’t know the chorus of the song. When he came in he said ‘Are you crazy?’ ‘cause the chorus right now was [initially] my first verse.

Sweet Love
“‘Sweet Love’ is just vibes. I honestly didn’t put much thought into making this song. I just heard the beat and I wanted to have these sexy vibes. I like me a confident woman and I have a type physically too—I’m not ashamed to say I like this or I like that. It’s about energy and us being supportive with each other.”

Cheque rekindle the Love

Change
“I’ve been blessed to have good friends around me. I’ve come across friends that really helped me grow, even when I had no house to stay in; they fed me for a while. I cannot go out in public and say, ‘Stuff my friends’. I wanted [this] to be on the album, so [that] when I listen to my first album, I know I’ve said something about what I really went through. I slept on the couch for a long time at my friend’s place, so no matter what, I always remember where I come from.”

Anybody
“These are my origins. This is the place where you find me the most. I always see myself as a teacher—I have to [enable everyone] to understand me. This is my bass, the kick that I love and what I like to express. It’s a combination of rap and rap-singing. In the song I was going high-pitched, low-pitched and shouting. I was just everywhere. If anyone wants to know my ability on a song, they should play this song.”

Listen and Enjoy

Pray
“This particular one I got from watching a movie. The person was saying that in all his life he has always wanted a certain type of woman, and she was exactly what he wanted. That stuck in my head. It’s a very straightforward chorus… ‘You’re everything I prayed for’. It’s a marriage song; a sentimental one saying, ‘Thank god I found you’. I’ll have to play this at my wedding.”

Free
“This one is saying, ‘Don’t test me!’ It’s a commanding song and very direct—‘I’m gon’ put you down so don’t try me’. I’m not telling you I’m strong, I’m showing you. It was important to end with this sound because I don’t like to be put in a box and attached to one column. When I make an album you can never really expect me to do the same thing. I try to imbue my work with my originality and it was important to open and close with that trap sound.”

Artistic tune display by Cheque

A perfectionist who knows who he is as an artist but yet keeps pushing his own limits musically, young Cheque has a hunger that’s admirable to see in an industry already rife with astounding talent.
