We can't seem to get enough of Nigerian R&B singer/songwriter Jasën Blu. His brand new single "Love Or Nothin", the second off his impending debut album "Soulwave" after Brown Shuga, has us bouncing since we first heard it.
Blending R&B, pop, funk, and afrobeat, Blu is a star waiting to explode musically.
This funky new record "Love Or Nothin'" is the second official single off Blu's impending debut album, Soulwave. Blu revealed it was conceived early 2016 and was intended for the year's Valentine's Day release, but was later kept for the album. "I came up with the initial instrumental, wrote the first verse and stayed on the vibe for a few days," said Blu. "Then I decided I want it on the album instead. I didn't write the second verse till late 2017 when "Already" was out and I've started putting choice records together for the album. I completed the song in traffic one afternoon in Lagos. I was on a BRT heading to Ajah when the second verse hit, so I put it down and recorded the song not long after that."
Inspired by simple expressions of affection, Blu brought through his signature lingual blend of English, Pidgin English, and Yoruba to vulnerably express pure love on a vintage bounce that employs soft Rhodes piano, galactic synth backgrounds, soulful chants, light guitars and bass, produced by himself, per-usual, for his production company SoundQraft LLC.
While the R&B genius has not been at his swiftest or most frequent when it comes to releases, with his oft-announced debut album "Soulwave" experiencing numerous push-backs and delays in the releases of promotional singles, one undeniable factor that solidly maintains his promises is the consistency in the quality and weight of the singles when they do drop.
