Seeking emotional honesty and respect from a partner, Show & Prove is imbued with Laolu’s honeyed lyrical inflections and a soft smattering of R&B melodies.
“Show & Prove is about feeling uncertain when someone wants to take things to the next step”, she explains. “You’ve heard that they’re a bit of a player and now you’re like’ why should I trust that you’re really all about me – you need to show me with your actions to prove that you’re serious about being all in’”.
Born to Nigerian parents, Laolu began writing her own music after graduating in Commercial Music Performance, leading to supporting slots with the likes of Ghetts, Miss Dynamite and Chip.
Show & Prove is out today.
