As Savage recognizes, love is a shifting force, the album includes daily reflections on sex, passion, and love.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Savage, a fast-rising Nigerian musician, has released his debut album, Utopia.
This follows the release of the singles ‘Confident,’ which features Buju, and ‘Rosemary,’ which features Victony.
He spoke on Apple Music’s Africa Now with Lootlove a few days ago and discussed how ‘Confident’ changed his life, “I get little messages every day, the tags, everything. And the other time I was in the mall, I went to Starbucks to get something. And in Starbucks they write your name on the cups and all of that. And she was like, “What’s your name?” I said, Savage. And she was like, Yeah, the “Confident Savage?” I’m like, yeah. She’s like, “Are you serious? Let me take a picture then. Let me take a picture.” It’s so crazy. It felt good.“
The ten-track presentation crosses Afro-Fusion and Rap, instilling racy notions while touching on an Afro-Pop dance-driven attitude.
As Savage recognizes love is a shifting force, the album includes daily reflections on sex, passion, and love. In songs like ‘Unbutton,’ he explores love by suggestively adoring a woman’s body against a rhythmic Afrobeats soundtrack. Savage jumps on the booming 808s in ‘Pariwo.’
In Utopia, Savage explores a vast sound palette blending sweet and upbeat music with mid-tempo grooves for the dancefloor, enlisting UK hard-hitters Kojo Funds and Kida Kudz on the afro-swing sizzler ‘Mana Gyalis,’ while African hip hop superstars Khaligraph Jones and Emtee feature on the enigmatic rap number ‘Daddy.’
On Apple Music, Lootlove Savage discusses his hopes for his upcoming EP, Africa Now with Lootlove Savage.
