DOWNLOAD Bella Alubo – GBOLAHAN
‘Gbolahan’ is Bella Alubo’s first single of the year 2020 since the release of her 2019 ‘Summer’s Over’ project which featured artists like Mr Eazi, Zlatan, T’neeya, and Ladipoe.
This R&B number is great for the intimate social-distancing hangouts and activities that have replaced crowded parties. The easy-going delivery is consistent with Bella’s sound from her 2018 ‘Late Night Vibrations’ collaborative EP with Ycee and Re-Bella EP.
With lyrics like “dark shades on, know you can see me” referencing Burna Boy, “tryna love me like a gangster” referencing Darkoo and “e no go sweet if the girl no come to the party” referencing Falz, Bella stays on trend with Afro-Beat, Afro-Swing and Afro-Pop while also infusing Y2K Ashanti ‘Foolish’-type vibes delivered in Bella’s own distinct sound.
