TIWA SAVAGE FEATURES BRANDY ON NEW SONG
Music superstar Tiwa Savage comes through with a banging single “Somebody’s son” for her fans who sincerely miss her. On this track, she brings on R&B singer Brandy Norwood. Her new single is taken from her brand new extended play ‘Water and Gari’, a fifth project and second EP of her career. It comes about a year after her third studio album ‘Celia’ released in August 2020. In the Segun Michael Ajayi-produced track, Savage and Brandy, amid run-ins with heartbreak, remain optimistic that the perfect man will find them and treat them like deserving queens. The record, which documents a woman’s yearning for love and the warmth of romance after enduring years of heartbreak aligns with the heartache that Brandy and Tiwa have both suffered in their personal lives. Brandy delivered in Yoruba and sang with panache, as expected.
It is refreshing to hear Tiwa again on a song as the singer has been relatively quiet this year. She does not disappoint as she brings her A-game on deck and we love the energy. Lots of top industry executives and colleagues both home and abroad speak well of the project.
For Savage, it’s a fulfilled fantasy to have Brandy featured on the new project, saying in a recent Apple Music interview that she’s “the reason why I started singing, literally.” Tiwa went on to say; “And when it happened this time, it’s not even just music, we connected like sisters. She’s someone that I speak to literally every other day. It’s beyond my expectation.” She continued, “As a kid, just listening to ‘I Wanna To Be Down,’ every interview I’ve ever had, she’s my favorite, my all-time, my mentor, my everything. And I’ve been trying to work with her for years. It was a dream of mine. And when it happened this time, it’s not even just music, we connected like sisters. She’s someone that I speak to literally every other day. It’s beyond my expectation.”
Tiwa Savage posted a Video on Her Instagram of the 2 artists listening to the new record, which had Tiwa Savage so excited, you could tell from her energy as she got emotional that she could not believe she is on a track with her idol and was extremely impressed with their execution. The video also showed Brandy shed a few tears as she listened in on the record and watched Tiwa jump up and down the room in excitement. This was definitely a beautiful moment for both Queens.
