After sending seismic ripples through the Afropop scene since 2020 with the release of his ‘Get Layd’ EP and ‘What Have We Done’, Omah Lay begins the year with the Justin Bieber-assisted number, “Attention”. The number is a beautiful dreamy mid-tempo R&B ballad, tinctured with delectable elements of Afropop.
On the new song, Omah Lay and Justin Bieber take turns expressing their desire for attention from a love interest with poignant melodies that are front and centre of the new track. “Attention” is the lead single from Omah Lay’s forthcoming LP ‘Boy Alone’, which is expected to drop later this year.
In the accompanying purple-hued video, the pair are set in a bonfire party, crowded with swaths of sweaty young bodies, dancing and drinking to the infectious mid-tempo track.
