Tiwa Savage, the Nigerian singer, has put out ‘Water & Garri’, her long-touted extended play (EP).
The R&B songstress came through with the project, which is a follow-up to her 2020 ‘Celia’ album, as scheduled on Friday.
‘Water & Garri’ unifies Tiwa’s global influences — gleaned from spending her primary years in Lagos, teenage years in London, and attending university in the United States — into a collage of R&B, soul, Afrobeats, and pop.
Named after garri, the staple cassava dish that is enjoyed hot or cold, ‘Water & Garri’ is released in two parts.
It mashes together sounds and styles of global collaborators with her own heartfelt sound.
On the track ‘Somebody’s Son’, the songstress ruminates on a love to come alongside Brandy, a US singer. For ‘Tales by Moonlight’, Tiwa taps Amaarae, a Ghanaian, on a sound merging ’90s house with African rhythms.
This half of the two-part EP also brings aboard Nas and Rich King (‘Work Fada’) and Tay Iwar (‘Special Kinda’).
Tiwa’s debut album ‘Once Upon a Time’ was put out in 2013. She released her second ‘R.E.D’ in December 2015.
In September 2017, she came with her debut EP ‘Sugarcane’ and followed it up with the ‘Celia’ album in 2020.
