Khalei begins his Summer Takeover with Debut Single “Twin”
Following the successful release of ‘Life is Good’, which has amassed over 200k+ streams across all digital streaming platforms, American-Nigerian multi-genre singer/songwriter Khalei begins his summer takeover with his new single ‘Twin’, taken off of his forthcoming EP “Lagos Nights.” Having racked up nearly 100,000 streams on Spotify alone so far for his previous singles, “Twin” is a smash hit song for the summer. A mid-tempo, vibrant, sing-along track that you don’t want to stop vibing to.
Produced by award-winning Roman AKV (Abra Cadabra, Kojo funds), ‘Twin’ is about how love is not always what you expect, especially when you get your heart broken along the line. “The reason I wrote this song is because I genuinely believed she was my soulmate, turns out she was a gold digger or just interested in material things – hence why I started the song by singing She said she wants the Jordan’s and the Prada’s, dancing in the rain, Mike Amiri trainers, show me what she says” Khalei explains. It is a vocal manifestation of the attitude Khalei has towards the creation of his music which compliments his mission to becoming the artist at the frontline of his genre, of which he is well aware that he can achieve by consistently producing hard-hitting singles.
Khalei’s naturally easy listening voice compliments one of the hardest beats heard in new wave alternative diaspora in perfect synergy. Breathing new life into the scene through marrying crisp rhythms over stellar production. One would say that Khalei’s sensitivity to diverse traditions can be accredited to him taking a dive into his Nigerian upbringing, Chicago lifestyle in the U.S, and also the UK style of living. There is no doubt that these have in one way or the other influenced his style of music and even his fashion sense as a brand. With no intentions of slowing down, a lot more is to be expected from Khalei that will enable him to become a massive fixture of the Alternative arena.
