Moelogo, regarded as one of the most unique and talented artists in the buzzing Afrobeat and UK music scene, has released his eagerly anticipated fourth EP titled ME, a perfect blend of Afrobeat, R&B and Palmwine sounds.
The British Nigerian singer-songwriter presents his vulnerability first hand in the new record. He explains, “The EP is titled ME as it is an exploration of the versatile yet real Moelogo. For a while I always put other people before myself but this EP is all about me”, adding “People usually expect melancholic music from me but this time I want my fans to feel my vulnerability, appreciation, happiness, freeness and relief”.
The 5-track ‘ME’ EP including up-tempo tracks, such as For You, Koshi and a fusion of R&B sounds on I Wonder, Sango + Oya and the down-tempo piano ballad Ugly Part of Love, is a masterpiece. Inspired by the ups and downs of relationships, life and love, ME is written by Moelogo and produced by Nigerian and UK-based producers: Priime Beats, Happi Music and Sess The Prblm and mastered by Turkish.
Moelogo best describes ME as “feel good music – the kind that you listen to while in any mood and it leaves you feeling better”. It demonstrates his versatility as an artist, with rich distinct vocals coupled with his compelling storytelling abilities.
Moelogo admitted that completing his latest record ME was tasking but an experience to grow with his fans, “I normally don’t sing about my most intimate experiences so I was reluctant to release these songs but in the end I am comfortable in showing myself while creating magic and enjoying putting my thoughts together in beats”.
In the coming months, Moelogo is set to drop two other EPs constituting with its latest release a 3-part series entitled ME #III, which will explore several aspects of Moelego’s personality as an expressive storyteller.
His expansive discography has earned him critical and mass recognition. Bursting onto the scene with his breakthrough single Pangolo, Moelogo released his debut EP Moe Is My Name, Music Is My Logo in 2013, in 2014 he dropped his underground hit The Baddest with Giggs, and worked with Swarmz on his single Bally featuring Tion Wayne, for which he was awarded 2 Silver plaques by the BPI as recognition for his songwriting prowess – the track has attracted over 7 million streams on Spotify and spent 9 weeks in the UK Official Top 40 Singles Chart.
