The emo-Afrobeats singer-songwriter eagerly anticipated Sad Romance Deluxe album is a delight for his fans. In his most recent single release, “Nwayi” (Igbo for “woman”), CKay returned to his signature emo-Afrobeats atmosphere.
The song’s 1 million streams is quickly approaching, with Sad Romance Deluxe, Africa’s boyfriend making a comeback. It includes four new songs, including ‘Hallelujah feat. Blaqbonez, ‘Nwayi’, ‘Nneka‘, and ‘capture my soul‘ feat. Joeboy.
Recent performances by Ckay include those at the Weekend Festival in Finland, the HipHop Open festival in Stuttgart, Lollapalooza in Paris, the HipHop Open festival in Stuttgart, and one in his hometown Nigeria. ‘Hallelujah‘ is currently at the top of Apple Music’s Top Songs Chart (NG) in Nigeria after receiving 12 million streams since its debut.
Since this release, CKay‘s monthly listeners on Spotify have climbed by 7.68% to 13.6M. Sad Romance has received over 400 million streams. African music icons Davido, Ayra Starr, Focalistic, Mayra Andrade, and Ronisia all appeared on the debut album.
The album’s lead single, “captures my soul,” continues the soft, tropical feel that CKay introduced in “Nwayi.” The main track for the album ‘captures my soul’ picks up where ‘Nwayi’ left off with CKay’s smooth, tropical sound.
Ckay explains the meaning of the main track:
“Capture my soul” is a song that literally captures your soul when you listen to it. It is an expression of surrender to love. It’s a continuation of my emo-afrobeat sound and was produced by myself and BMH. BMH is a musical genius who always brings my ideas to life.
He did his thing for sure on this one too. I decided to release a deluxe edition of Sad Romance because I grew romantically since the original and I have a fresh, positive outlook on love: Hearts get broken worldwide every day. It’s okay to be sad, but at a certain point, you have to move on and live your life.
Go to party, go indulge, go do whatever. But make sure you aren’t scared to fall in love again. It’s never deep.”
Fans from all over the world will have the chance to observe how CKay shares with us his emotional love story, revealing his frail side and addressing important topics that people encounter in their daily lives.
