Odunsi Releases Two Summer Slowburners: Better Days/Wetin Dey
Odunsi has been been very consistent since the release of his debut project 'rare'. Since the release of his biggest single 'Tipsey' ft Raye after his run of shows in the UK, Odunsi laid low for a little while preparing his next tour, get tickets here, and cultivating his next moves.
Just in time for the end of the summer, Odunsi (The Engine) surprises fans with two new tracks 'Better Day/Wetin Dey'. Two slow-burning track that are bound to keep the party going on a late summer's day.
‘Better Days’ was produced by P2J who is highly sought after due to superb collaborations with Beyonce (Brown Skin Girl, Keys to the Kingdom etc.), Burna Boy (Anybody, Ja Ara E) and Goldlink. The track features rising singer-songwriter WANI who gained recognition following the release of his debut EP Lagos City Vice in 2018. The singles serve as a statement from Odunsi that Summer is far from over as well a perfect way to usher in the Fall season. The offerings showcase his versatility as an artist and brilliance as a songwriter.
‘Wetin Dey’ produced by GA (Kojo Funds) samples the classic tune also titled Wetin Dey (Omukeke) by Nigerian artists Ruff Rugged & Raw who were one of the pioneers for underground rap in Nigeria. Odunsi seeks to evoke nostalgic emotions in Nigerians and simultaneously brings a fresh spin on the song, making it his own. Wetin Dey is a bouncy record with an infectious hook, slightly more up tempo than the preceeding 'Better Days', a great fusion of sounds to dance to
