Omah Lay, the talented Nigerian singer, has unveiled the highly anticipated enhanced deluxe edition of his album “Boy Alone.” This reimagined version boasts six new tracks, offering fans a diverse range of musical experiences and pleasant surprises.
Among the additions is the contemplative and introspective “reason,” along with a remix of the viral hit “soso,” featuring the renowned reggaeton artist Ozuna. However, the album’s sonic exploration and artistic evolution extend beyond these tracks.
The newly released album opens with “closer,” a captivating composition characterized by its dark undertones, infectious Afro-beats, sparse percussion, and thought-provoking lyrics. Following suit is the understated yet captivating anthem “it’s yours,” which seamlessly blends rhythmic percussion with enchanting synths. Another standout is “Imagine,” a silky-smooth rendition of the R&B barnburner that features a collaboration with British rapper Aitch.
One track that truly shines is “reason,” showcasing Omah Lay’s ambition through its multi-layered approach, evocative percussion, and natural choral harmonies. The result is a sophisticated Afrobeat masterpiece that exudes meaning and melodious joy. With over 240 million global streams, the deluxe edition of “Boy Alone” has received widespread acclaim.
The album also includes the brand-new remix of Omah Lay’s smash hit “soso,” featuring reggaeton sensation Ozuna. Additionally, the original versions of chart-topping tracks like “attention” with Justin Bieber, “woman,” and “understand” are among the album’s notable accomplishments. These songs garnered significant attention from reputable media outlets such as The New York Times, HYPEBEAST, The FADER, Billboard, and NME. Omah Lay’s exceptional talent and dedication were recognized with a nomination for “Outstanding International Song” at the 2022 NAACP Image Awards.
Aside from his solo endeavors, Omah Lay has lent his unmistakable voice to several noteworthy Afrobeats hits this year. Collaborations such as Libianca’s “People,” Tempoe’s “Soweto,” Bella Shmurda’s “Philo,” and his recent collaboration with Big Boss Vette on “I Can’t Stop,” included on the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack, have further solidified his presence in the music industry. With “Boy Alone Deluxe,” Omah Lay delves deeper into his artistry, presenting fresh ideas that hint at even greater things to come for the talented Nigerian singer.
