Get Into Nova's Hazy New Single 'Oceans & Skies'

The Nigerian artist fuses elements of hip-hop, afrobeat and pop rhythms for this infectious new track.

Nova is one of the young, rising artists coming out of Nigeria's new wave.

His ever-evolving sound has seen him shift from being an edgy rapper to taking on vocal duties over smooth and hazy beat work.

Nova has just dropped his Doozybeatz-produced new single, "Oceans & Skies," which fuses elements of hip-hop, afrobeat, and pop rhythms. The infectious track, which was mixed by Bankyondbeatz, builds on a guitar sample and afrobeat percussion elements.

"Ocean & Skies tastefully blends together different genre influences for an emotional ride of love, hate, lust, and desire," Nova tells OkayAfrica. "With references to past experiences and rooted vivid feelings, Ocean & Skies is personal, relatable and real."

Get into Nova's latest single below. You'll have this one on repeat.

"Oceans & Skies" is available now across all platforms.
