The Nigerian artist drops an LA-shot video for his latest single "Rora," which has been on heavy rotation.
"Rora" (translated from Yoruba as 'Take It Easy') is a highly-addictive production built on mid-tempo beatwork, highlife influences, and playful lyrics aimed at a love interest.
Reekado Banks stopped by our OkayAfrica offices a few weeks ago to give us an early listen of the single. During his visit he told us more about the song:
"The new single 'Rora' was produced by Tuzi and Altims. Tuzi produced [previous single] 'Sensima,' and Altims is one of my favorite producers from way back. He's signed to Mavin Records, my former label. We linked up again and made this one which feels really special to me."
"The tune of the song is really chill, it relaxes you. The message is quite playful and sexual (laughs). Yeah, so it's fun," he also mentioned.
In terms of his upcoming album, Reekado revealed: "It's a 12 track album that features some of my special friends. We've been working on it for a long time, about 12 months. I'm really excited we're at this point where everyone will get to listen to it soon.I really like to make feel-good music. Music that everybody can relate to in their normal life. This album has different topics of your day-to-day life, basically."
Get into "Rora" below. The song is available now.
