Boj And Odumodublvck Link On ‘JABO’

A languid dancefloor excursion...

English-Nigerian artist Boj returns with new single ‘JABO’, featuring compatriot Odumodublvck.

Produced by Grammy-nominated Rage (Ayra Starr, Davido, King Promise) ‘JABO’ (which translates to ‘fall Down’) is a smooth, Alté-inspired serenading groove – the second collaboration between Nigerian heavyweights after ‘Olufunmi Reimagined’. Following the Adekunle Gold-assisted ‘Love Garden‘, Boj continues to render in lush, dreamlike brushtrokes on ‘JABO’ – a mellifluous dancefloor heater that moves away from Afro-pop anthemics to something more reined-in and sensory.

Boj released his debut album ‘Boj on the Mic almost a decade ago. He went on to collaborate with the likes of WizKid, Skepta and AjeButter ahead of his Headie-award-winning ‘Gbagada Express‘, which featured Davido, Ayra Starr, Mr Eazi, Fireboy and BNXN alongside UK rap luminaries Enny and Knucks. Boj released the sequel ‘Gbagada Express Vol 2: Moving Mad‘ last year, cementing his status as an Alté pioneer.

Boj has since featured on Dave’s platinum-certified ‘We’re All Alone In This Together’, and headlined the Village Underground in London. He’s since returned to the capital, continuing to release music inspired by the diasporic immersion.

Stay tuned for more from Boj this year and watch the lyric video for ‘JABO’ below.
