Bez 'My Baby'

Nigeria's prince of soulful pop Bez returns with 'My Baby,' the first single off his forthcoming sophomore effort.

It's been a minute since we've heard from Nigerian prince of soulful pop Bez. The Jos-born crooner– who goes down in the OKA history books along with Brooklyn rapper Sene as our very first Player Xchange alum– returns with a new single from his forthcoming sophomore effort. The jazz lounge channeling "My Baby" continues drawing comparisons with John Legend, though this time soaked in retro colors. Cobhams Asuquo lends his production hand yet again on what's set to become St. Valentine's anthem of 2014. Expect to catch this one in more than a few adverts. Stream and download the early taste from Bez's upcoming alt-soul follow-up below.
