LISTEN NOW: Olamide New Album “UY Scuti” Is Out
Finally Voice of the Street, Olamide Baddo Drops The Highly Anticipated UY Scuti Album.
YBNL Boss and EMPIRE rapper, Olamide releases a brand new album titled “UY Scuti” to kick start 2021 official. The music project which is a follow up to Baddo’s 10th studio album, ‘Carpe Diem‘ is a classic album.
With UY Scuti, Nigerian rapper Olamide continues his evolutionary cycle on his eleventh studio album. A follow-up to 2020’s Afrobeats-tinged Carpe Diem, this project sees him set comfortable flows over roots reggae, R&B, Afrobeats and pop soundscapes.
“Carpe Diem was the beginning of the new me, and I took it to the next level of brand Olamide’s new direction on this particular project,” Olamide tells Apple Music.
With a widened palette, he packages the lessons of his early street days into pop ditties that reflect his expanding worldview. “I’m a citizen of the world now, so my choice of sound is a combination of all the beautiful music I’ve heard,” he says.
“This is a full-time pop album, and it’s way, way above everything I’ve ever done. My son is a huge fan of astrology, and one day he asked me what the biggest star in the universe was.
I found out; it stuck in my head and I titled the project that because it’s the biggest move I’ve made in my career.” Here, he talks us through this momentous offering, track by track.
