Last week, DJ Spinall instructed his fans to type "Spinall Iyanu" into iTunes, and much to our excitement, we found his fourth body of work, an album entitled Iyanu, ready for pre-order, complete with the tracklist.
Adorned with some of the biggest names in music right now — although, unfortunately lacking in women — the release of this tracklist had us especially excited for what Spinall had in store; and, to our delight, he did not disappoint.
From the very first track, "Stamina" featuring Ceeza and Cnatty, this album is arresting. The album features an eclectic mix of sounds, thanks to the wide array of artists who all bring their own individual touches to the project.
"Serious", featuring Burna Boy, was one of the most anticipated collaborations on the album — a fact that Burna acknowledges on the track, singing, "people have been waiting for the both of us". Well, as usual, Burna Boy totally kills it.
Another highly anticipated track that didn't disappoint was "DJ" featuring Davido. On this track Davido shows off his lyricism, working with a more mellow vibe than his usual tempo over the past year.
Joining the hit singles, "Nowo" and "Baba" are some big bangers, such as "Omoge" featuring Dotman, "Baby Girl" featuring Tekno and "Try For You" featuring Nonso Amadi. All the musicians on this album shine, especially DJ Spinall who brought this body of work together.
