Obongjayar & Sarz – Sweetness EP
Obongjayar & Sarz – Sweetness EP Now Out On Donemmynaija Mp3 Download Audio
In quick follow-up to the collaborative EP with Lojay (LV N ATTN EP), which currently is enjoying a lot of commercial acclaim, music maestro Sarz releases a new project with London-based Afrobeats artist, Obongjayar titled “Sweetness” EP.
Today, two of the most exciting names in modern music come together to announce their brand new collaboration. The ‘Sweetness EP’ is the result of maverick artist Obongjayar joining forces with prolific producer SARZ for the first time to create a truly unique body of work that side-steps the many labels that have been used to describe the music the pair have previously made. While both have roots grounded in the expansive and nuanced musical legacy of Nigeria, they’ve managed to transcend its borders to create a genre-bending EP that sees SARZ’s breezy production and Obongjayar sultry vocals complement each other to a tee – both structurally and melodically.
Known for his innovative production and composition work for the likes of Wizkid, Drake, Skepta and Beyonce, Nigerian based SARZ has always been a key player in celebrated cross-cultural projects, but it was upon meeting Obongjayar in London last year that the pair set out to create something outside of their respective comfort zones. Having previously released two EP’s, collaborated with the likes of Giggs, Kamasi Washington and Danny Brown (and is at this very moment putting the finishing touches to his debut album) Obongjayar helped elevate the production with his seductive lyricism that journals the various stages of falling in love and establishing a relationship.
Speaking about the EP Obongjayar and SARZ write:
“The EP looks at the early stages of a relationship, with the ego stripped away – the vulnerability, doubt and anxiety of trying to figure out where you stand, as well as the sweetness and excitement. Those emotions normally feel like such a grey area it was exciting to explore them so directly and write like it was a film – with a clear beginning, middle and end. Sarz’ production sets the perfect mood and puts you in that zone of early expressive love and i think our two worlds merged together wonderfully” ~ Obongjayar
“I have never created a project like this before. I would describe the EP as genre bending – it fuses synthwave, 80’s music, afrobeats and pop. Different elements were blended together to create Sweetness” ~ SARZ
To mark the release of the EP, the pair have also released a visualizer to ‘Gone Girl’. Directed by French duo Julia et Vincent, the visualizer sees Obongjayar perform the track whilst falling in and out of focus over the canvas of two entwined bodies – the close-up nature of the visual further highlighting the intimacy of the track.
