DAP The Contract Serenades Us On New Song 'Special' Featuring Ajebutter22
From his EP Two Roads to the music series Contract Thursdays Pt 1, DAP The Contract's music evolves with each project, and this comes as no surprise, as he draws inspiration from a lot of different genres such as jazz, soul, afrobeat, gospel and highlife.
Earlier in the summer, DAP released new music every Thursday in June to make up his music series, Contract Thursdays Pt 1.
The series was made up of five songs, and a mesmerizing video for one of the songs "IDK Interlude" featuring Warner Meadows. With help from various other artists such as SHE and Sebastian Otero, it was definitely enjoyable and you can imagine the excitement that came with the release of Contract Thursday's Pt 2. The second series kicks off with the new single "Special" featuring hitmaker Ajebutter 22.
The song has all the trappings of DAP's sound, with a quirky beat and interchanging flow which strikes a good balance between rapping and singing. To top it off, it features a great Ajebutter verse complete with his usual puns and word play. "Special" is the perfect late summer serenade, fit to suit any session it finds itself played at.
