In September 2022, Nigerian afrobeats singer ASAKE released his debut albu Mr. Money With The Vibe, what capped off an excellent year for him. He took over the afrobeats world with records like Sungba, PBUY, Terminator, and “Organise” while Mr. Money With The Vibe was heralded by some as the afrobeats album of the year. While some, like myself, may have expected Asake to spend this year crafting his next project, the singer is way ahead of schedule as he announced his second album Work Of Art.
That announcement came with the release of “Amapiano” featuring Olamide, a respected afrobeats singer who signed Asake to his YBNL Nation label. It makes for their second collaboration following last year’s “Omo Ope,” and for their latest record, Asake and Olamide deliver what is undoubtedly a track perfect to start your summer parties. More records like that will be available on Asake’s upcoming album as it will arrive with 14 tracks to its name including 2:30 and YOGA and the newly-released “Amapiano ft Olamide”. The artwork for Work Of Art, which arrives on June 16, depicts a joyous Asake in front of a pair of paintings.
