Nigerian Superstar Yemi Alade is serving attitude with the release of new EP &Video, AFRICAN BADDIE OUT NOW now via Effyzzie Music.
The 10-track project features collaborations with Spice, Phyno, Bisa Kdei, Zlatan, Bramsito, Joe Dwẻt File, and Lemar.
Preceding the release of AFRICAN BADDIE, Yemi Alade released earworm “Bubble It” ft. Spice which amassed over 6 MILLION VIEWS on Youtube, bumping the Nigerian singer into over 20 MILLION VIEWS ON TIK TOK.
“I’m an African Baddie, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have emotions,” says Yemi. “Every woman can relate to all the moods on this EP. One minute we are begging a man not to hurt us again and the next we’re in front of the mirror reminding ourselves who is really in control.”
Not only does Yemi Alade guide fans through different moods on her new EP, but she’s also navigating between new genres with ease. Dancehall, Highlife, and Afrobeats are all represented in this body of work.
The official video for the title track ‘Baddie’ is full of all the baddie elements. Filmed in Ghana, the video highlights the vibrant dance culture of Afrobeats and Dancehall.
AFRICAN BADDIE follows Yemi’s Grammy Award Winning contributions to both Angelique Kidjo’s “Mother Nature” Album earlier this year as well as Beyonce’s her contributions to Beyonce’s BLACK IS KING of 2021.
For Yemi, this EP garners the same level of attention and recognition, capturing her versatility as an international artist.
