Listen to Emtee’s 2 New Songs ‘Wave’ and ‘Brand New Day’

Emtee releases his first singles of 2020.

Last night, Emtee unleashed two new singles, the first batch of music he released on his own since leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment last year.


Both singles were produced by Ruff, Emtee's longtime producer who is behind most of his projects DIY (2015), Avery (2016), Manando (2017) and DIY 2 (2018).

On "Wave," which he tackles solo, Emtee wears his heart on his sleeve—he raps and croons about being a parent, saving up for a Mercedes Benz, acknowledges that life can get tough, among other topics.

He raps, "They wanna ride the wave, wake up and decide to hate/ I'm not going outside today, negative energy far away."

"Brand New Day" is the yin to "Wave"'s yang. In it, assisted by ATM (African Trap Movement) member Lolli, Emtee offers a positive outlook, using the imagery of a brand new day. The music provided by Ruff is also sunnier with bright pads and a soulful sample as opposed to the gloomier production on "Wave."

For most of last year, Emtee was involved in a highly-publicized legal battle with Ambitiouz Entertainment, the label that has released his first two albums Avery and Manando and the EP DIY 2. He left the label in August last year, and appeared on singles by the likes of Rouge, J Molley and a few others.

2020 is supposed be Emtee's comeback year. It will be interesting to observe how he maneuvers the murky waters of independence in South Africa's climate.
