Alte pioneer, BOJ returns with a new single, “In A Loop” featuring the talented Ghanaian-American sister duo of Moliy and Mellissa.
On the single, Moliy and Mellissa form sensual reverberations around the interstellar swing of the beat, singing of a relationship and how it’s supposed to go. Moliy’s luminous vocals are especially affecting, taking the hook in typical energy. “Nobody gonna win this game”, she sings, underscoring the romantic tension which vivifies the record.
Like the perfect host, BOJ lingers in the background, layering his husky voice in important spaces. His opening verse is bright, coasting on the beat with the assurance he projects in its lyrics. “Every story’s got two sides”, he eventually concedes somewhere deep in the mix, as the percussion and shimmering keys build around his vocals.
“In A Loop” is another strong indicator of the musical direction for BOJ‘s forthcoming project, ‘Gbagada Express’ slated for April 22, 2022 release. Alongside previous drops like the Mr Eazi and Davido-assisted “Abracadabra” and “Money & Laughter” with Zamir and Amaarae, this new single sets an expectant tone for BOJ’s first solo project in nearly five years.
