Following a string of hit singles last year including ‘It Is What It Is’, ‘Sinner’ ft Lucky Daye and his latest drop ‘High’ ft Davido which was one of the biggest singles of 2021, the ever-popular Afropop sensation Adekunle Gold now releases his brand-new single ‘MERCY’ (out now on Afro Urban Records via Platoon).
Fusing energetic Afropop with tropical dancehall elements and slick electronic production courtesy of Blaise Beatz along with a mesmerizing intro from Simi – who also mixed the track, ‘MERCY’ sees Adekunle Gold triumphantly celebrating his evolution into a fully-fledged, international Afropop superstar, taking control of his journey and not allowing anything to dim his light.
‘MERCY’ is taken from Adekunle Gold’s forthcoming, the highly-anticipated album ‘Catch Me If You Can’, which is out on February 4th, 2022. Set to take the music world by storm, the new album will showcase more of Adekunle Gold’s signature, one-of-a-kind combination of addictive melodies and razor-sharp lyricism that has earned him a legion of fans across the world and 100s of millions of global streams.
One of the most recognisable and exciting pioneers of the Afropop genre, currently dominating airwaves across the globe – mixing Afrobeat with Pop, Hip-Hop and R&B influences, Adekunle Gold is one of the most elegant and innovative artists to come out of Africa. With the announcement of his forthcoming brand new album, fans can expect more of an insight into Adekunle Gold’s personality – stylish, timeless and ground-breaking.
