Take Vinci’s ‘Monalisa’; paint over it in the sexiest way possible and you’ll have Lojay’s masterpiece. The artist is back with more sexual innuendos on ‘Leader’.
Lojay has built a career with his unique fusion of afrobeats and a style of singing that fluctuates between R&B, Reggae and Afropop. Easy depictions of this can be heard on ‘Monalisa’ and ‘Tonongo’. Lojay makes use of his beguiling alto and hard beats usually provided by his partner in crime, Sarz.
In ‘Leader’, he deviates from the afrobeat route with a more western-style beat, courtesy P.Priime; keyboard tunes, hard bass and sharp percussion all come together to create a solid tune. The R&B lyrics come in and they can be described with one word: “risque”. Lojay takes the helm as the captain of this love boat which will certainly lead to many bedroom mishaps and kinky behavior.
The beat portrays this dominant move for control and Lojay offsets this with his smooth and cool lyrics that inevitably soothe you into submission without a hassle. Lojay is known for expressing his sexual attraction with his music, but he takes it to a deeper level here.
While this track may not be for innocent ears, it certainly passes the vibe check for both an in-room sensual tussle and a club banger – the perfect midpoint.
Summing up a day in Solomon's life would include: anime, manga, marvel breakdowns, writing and workout. If he's not doing any of these, he's either listening to indie pop or fan-boying Dominic Fike.
