Nigerian rapper turned Afropop singer/rapper Blaqbonez closes out 2021 with the deluxe edition of his debut album Sex Over Love. This new edition goes the extra mile by revamping some of his old tracks and extending the length of the project. Consisting of several of Blaq’s hit singles such as “Haba”, “Bling”, “Fendi” and “Okwaraji” it includes three new additional tracks “Run My Race”, “Shut Up – Remix”, and “Medicine” featuring Afropop star Oxlade.
On “Okwaraji” he embodies the spirit of a good boy turned player after numerous heartbreaks and disappointments. On there, he is joined by singer Bella Shmurda who closes it out with an unapologetic verse over the sublime and punchy trap backdrop. On “Shut Up – Remix” he recruits Ghanaian rapper Kwesi Arthur, South African singer/producer Tellaman, and Afropop singer Kuami Eugene who all have fun over the hypnotic backdrop laid before them. Blaq is in his element in “Novacane” a dreamy melodic trap track that displays his braggadocio demeanor in all its glory. He reminds us that he came from the bottom and now he is living his dreams despite what the naysayers think. Other stand-out tracks include the sensual record “Never Been in Love” and the catchy hit “Bling” featuring singers Amaarae and Buju.
Overall BlaqBonez sticks to the anti-love theme religiously in a slightly humorous manner where he seems to be living his best life devoid of girl troubles. In a nutshell, he reminds us that he is just here to have fun and further express his Sex over love gospel. “The album is my most successful body of work,” Blaq said via email, ” I’m just tryna show y’all more reasons why you should pick Sex Over Love.”
