Mr Eazi Drops New Tracks 'Overload' and 'London Town' Featuring Giggs

The Nigerian artist experiments with new sounds on two recently released tracks.

Earlier this week, Mr Eazi announced that he'd be dropping two new singles this week, and today, he delivered on his promise.

The Nigerian musician dropped "London Town" featuring Giggs and "Overload," featuring Slim Case and Mr Real. The former sees the artist stepping outside his trademark mellow afrobeats sound to deliver a grimy cut featuring one of London's biggest rappers. The London love is real, so much so that a mural was made in the city to celebrate the release of the track.


This one will definitely sound pretty sweet blasting out of your car speakers:

"Overload" is more true to the artist sonically, but still more uptempo than usual. The singer trades fiery lyrics back and forth in Yoruba and pidgin with Mr Real and Slim Case atop synth-filled production. The song is undeniably made for the dance floor. Have a listen below.

Mr Eazi is experimenting with new sounds and we're here for it. Earlier this week, the artists got a major co-sign from Janet Jackson when she hit the Akwaaba dance during her Billboard Music performance.
