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.

The ‘Coming 2 America’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack & ‘The Rhythm Of Zamunda’ Are Out Now

Featuring Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga, Alpha P, Davido and many more.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
