Highly-rated Nigerian female vocalist and gifted songwriter, Tiwa Savage after the much anticipation has finally dropped her extended play, “Water & Garri”.
The body of works is a five track project with features from Grammy Award winner, Nas, Amaarae, Rich King, Brandy, and Tay Iwar. The extended play serves as a follow up to her third studio album, “Celia” which was released in 2020.
‘Water & Garri’ unifies Tiwa Savage’s global influences gleaned from spending primary years in Lagos, teenage years in London and attending university in the US—into a collage of R&B, Afrobeats and pop.
Named after the staple cassava dish that’s enjoyed hot or cold, and released in two parts, ‘Water & Garri’ mashes together sounds and styles with global collaborators and her own heartfelt style.
On “Somebody’s Son”, she ruminates on a love to come alongside US singer Brandy, while on “Tales by Moonlight” she links up with Ghanaian singer Amaarae on a flirtatious jaunt pairing elements of soulful ’90s house with African rhythms. This half of the two-part EP also loops in the talents of Nas and Rich King (“Work Fada”) and Tay Iwar (“Special Kinda”).
“Water & Garri” is a dope project you will want to add to your playlist and play endlessly. Download Full EP below.
