Since Praiz won us all over with his amazing voice in the first season of Project Fame West Africa, we've had to watch the talented singer awkwardly shuffle between solid r&b ballads ("Folashade") and generic afropop songs ("Sisi").
Well, for his newest body of work, 2 Mins, Praiz ditches the afropop crutch and focuses on doing what he does best: delivering a bunch of well-written and well-performed r&b songs.
Cleverly released today, on Valentine's Day, the five-track EP is a pretty well-rounded body of work — especially considering just how short it is. About the EP, Praiz simply described it as "[five] r&b songs that will change your life".
"2 Minutes" is about walking away from a relationship that isn't working; "Save Us" is about missing a relationship that's ended; "Here and Now" is about finding true love; "Champagne & Showers" is about a romantic date night; and "Don't Want To Lose Your Love" is about being stuck in a toxic relationship.
Not simply content with stealing the entire show with his wonderful voice and impressive lyrics, three of the EP's songs — "2 Minutes", "Here And Now" and "Don't Want To Lose Your Love"— were also produced by Praiz. We hope to get more of these kinds of songs from him in the future.
