Rowlene Shares New Single ‘Stop’ from Upcoming Project ‘11:11’

Listen to Rowlene's new single 'Stop' from upcoming album '11:11'.

Rowlene is finally releasing a project. The pre-order for 11:11 is live, and it comes with a new single, the album opener titled "Stop". The song has two parts and is fit for an intro as it sees the artist crooning confidently over a trap beat and later, a stripped down instrumental which she meets halfway with her surefooted vocals. She sings in the hook: "I'm a CEO, see me all getting paid/ You ain't on the payroll, but you asking for a raise."

David Balshaw, Bubele Booi, Fermin Suero, Jr., Ndumiso Manana (Seba Kaapstad) appear on the song's credits alongside Rowlene who's a songwriter and producer in her own right.

11:11, which is expected on the 13th of November, will feature Nonso, Omari Hardwick, Manana and Nasty C—a guestlist that is outside of the usual pool of hip-hop artists Rowlene worked with in her previous projects. The Evolution of a Robot (2017) and its 2018 predecessor The Evolution of a Robot: 2nd Generation featured the likes of Riky Rick, Nadia Nakai, Big Star Johnson, Gemini Major and several others.

Rowlene, who's affiliated with Nasty C and the rapper's Tall Racks Records label, has built her name through standout duets with the likes of Nasty C, A-Reece, Flvme and a few others. She has appeared on all of Nasty C's three studio albums. Hopefully with the release of 11:11, she will forge her own path as a solo artist.

All in a day's work! Nigerian superstar Wizkid is climbing his way further and further up the charts (and our lists of favourites) by releasing visuals to accompany track "No Stress," off of his freshly released album Made In Lagos.

So far, the album has amassed over a million streams in under 24 hours on Boomplay. The 14-track album features music heavy weights including Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R., Ella Mai and Terri.

The album was originally meant to drop two weeks ago, but with the political and social terror occurring presently in his home country Nigeria, Wizkid chose to delay it.
