Watch Odunsi (The Engine)'s New Video For 'Wetin Dey / Better Days'
Two end-of-summer jams.
"Better Days" is a hazy production helmed by P2J, who comes off working on big projects for the likes of Beyoncé's Lion King: The Gift and Burna Boy's African Giant. The guitar-flanked track features vocals from singer-songwriter WANI, who we've previously covered.
The hip-hop-leaning "Wetin Dey" samples a classic tune from Nigerian underground rap pioneers Ruff Rugged & Raw, which was also titled "Wetin Dey (Omukeke)."
Odunsi is coming off the drop of his latest single "Tipsy," featuring RAYE, and the success of his 13-song debut album, rare., which featured appearances from Davido, Runtown, Santi, Nasty C, Tay Iwar and more.
Listen to his two new singles "Better Days" and "Wetin Dey" below.
Update 8/15/19: Watch the new Lagos-shot music video for "Wetin Dey / Better Days" below.
"With 'Wetin Dey' I wanted to express the youth in Lagos going out and having fun," Odunsi tells The Fader. "I was inspired by the Will Smith 'Summertime' video. I always wanted to recreate that. 'Better Days' has a bit of a darker theme of running away after doing something evil. I had to shoot two videos because I like both songs as much as the other."
