Post created on 12:48 pm
After premiering ‘Tales by Moonlight’ yesterday, Tiwa Savage finally drops “Water & Garri EP”.
Tiwa Savage debut in 2021 with the highly anticipated new EP titled “Water & Garri“. Featuring International artists; Brandy, Nas & Rich King, with Alte Queen, Amaarae and romantic singer, Tay Iwar , the EP houses 5 tracks and explores new sounds with smooth and calm vibes.
Savage’s fearlessness in combining a unique fusion of Afrobeat, R&B, soul and pop paid off, earning her an abundance of award nominations including four Channel O Music Video Awards nominations, five World Music Award nominations, two Headies nominations, MTV Africa Music, BET & MOBO Award nominations and many more.
As the follow-up to her acclaimed third album, 2020’s Celia, Water & Garri EP unifies Tiwa Savage’s global influences ”gleaned from spending primary years in Lagos, teenage years in London and attending university in the US” into a collage of R&B, Afrobeats and pop.
Named after the staple cassava dish that’s enjoyed hot or cold, and released in two parts, Water & Garri mashes together sounds and styles with global collaborators and her own heartfelt style.
On Somebody’s Son, she ruminates on a love to come alongside US singer Brandy, while on Tales by Moonlight she links up with Ghanaian singer Amaarae on a flirtatious jaunt pairing elements of soulful 90s house with African rhythms. This half of the two-part EP also loops in the talents of Nas and Rich King (Work Fada) and Tay Iwar (Special Kinda)
Listen and enjoy!
