British singer Ed Sheeran has unveiled his new album, ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’.
The ‘I Don’t Care’ hitmaker has been working on the new EP – where he collaborates with a range of different artists – since he started touring last year and he sees it as a follow up to the No.5 Collaborations Project EP he made before he was signed in 2011.
He wrote on Instagram: “Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make. No.6 Collaborations Project will be out everywhere on 12 July. It’s available to pre-order from midnight tonight local time and my song with @chancetherapper and @pnbrock will be out everywhere at the same time x ”
Ed’s track with Justin Bieber and his new song ‘Cross Me’ with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock feature on the album and whilst he has revealed the full tracklist, he has yet to unveil his collaborators. Tracks on the album include ‘Beautiful People’, ‘Remember The Name’, ‘Antisocial’, ‘Put It All On Me’ and ‘I Don’t Want Your Money’.
The Chance the Rapper collaboration is already out and garnering lots of success. Released on May 23rd, 2019, the lyric video has garnered over 300K views in just an hour. And it’s now wondering why, because the track which also features PnB Rock is a great sound and a new direction for the ‘Perfect’ crooner.
The 28-year-old star previously credited his success to hard work and persistence. He said: “Persistence gets you wherever you want to go. My dad always said, ‘Nothing ventured, nothing gained.’ It was never, ‘It either works or it doesn’t’, you don’t stop until it works, basically. I applied that to the ‘Thinking Out Loud’ video, rehearsing five hours a day thinking, ‘Why the f**k am I learning to dance? I make the music, someone else can dance.’ But I set out to do it and I did it. If you feel like you should do something but it’s a risk, just f***ing do it. If it’s positive, obviously. Don’t do anything bad!”
There are no negative vibes with Nigerian singer Runtown, Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire and Jamaican artist Alkaline.
Nigerian artist Runtown has teamed up with Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire and Jamaican dancehall artist Alkaline for the summertime banger “No Negative Vibes.”
The track, produced by Walshy Fire, is all about maintaining positive energy and living life to the fullest, as Runtown sings on the chorus an opening verse. Alkaline joins in with a melodic verse echoing the same sentiments sung in Patois.
The accompanying music video, is a visual treat, shot by the renowned Nigerian director Meji Alabi. The nearly 4-and-a-half minute clip sees both Runtown and Alkaline head to Jamaica, where they enjoy time with friends, take in the vibrant energy on the streets and enjoy smoke sessions in the studio, all without any negative vibes to kill their upbeat moods.
Runtown, who dropped ‘No Permission’ a memorable collaboration with Nasty C at the end of last year, is readying the release of his forthcoming EP “Tradition” which is due out at the end of the month Okay Africa reported.
The artist recently wrote an open letter, published in The Guardian Nigeria, addressing the Nigerian government, and urging them to prioritize social progress.
Runtown whose real name is Douglas Jack Agu, got his breakthrough with his 2015 hit ‘Bend Down Pause’ and the 2016 song ‘Mad Over You’ which in turn resulted to him being chosen as one of the artists for the fifth season of Coke Studio Africa as well as performing in Kenya for the first time in 2017. His Coke Studio Africa produced collabo alongside Nasty C titled ‘Said’ has over 12 million views on YouTube.
