DJ CUPPY’S ORIGINAL TRACKLIST IS A ‘MASTERPIECE’ AS BURNA BOY’S NEW 15-TRACKER ‘TWICE AS TALL’ RELEASE DATE IS SET FOR AUGUST 14

As the world anxiously await albums from DJ Cuppy debut album ORIGINAL COPY and Burna Boy’s TWICE AS TALL, Ikedi Mekz gives the lowdown

Adveertisement

In today’s music business it has become standard practice for artistes to unveil album track list and cover art prior to releasing the body of work; whether an EP or an LP. As a matter of fact, any artiste who hasn’t followed such step as part of the procedures is considered not ready yet. This is one prevailing reason major journalists and well informed critics in the music industry doubted superstar artiste, Wizkid when of recent he mouthed release of his much anticipated album – ‘Made In Lagos’ – without a track list or even the cover art.

However, the same cannot be said of celebrity Nigerian disc jockey DJ Cuppy, whose real name is Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola. The recording artiste and producer had some days back unveiled a 12 track list ahead of his forthcoming debut album which drops soon. Alongside the list is the album cover art. Cuppy had earlier started publicizing her album release shortly after titling it “Original Copy”. The ‘Gelato’ crooner would then tease her raving ‘Cupcakes’ (fans) with this project on her social media platforms, and they are excited as much eagerly awaiting it.

The 12 track album list recently unveiled on her Instagram page features international and local artistes. Going by the artistes on the album appears a pot pouri of afrobeats flavour and one that will truly break all preconceived notions about the internstional DJ Cuppy, who has added artiste tag to her resume. Not unmindful of the feelers out there, she wrote “Tell me! What do you think about my album track list? Swipe #OriginalCopy,” shortly after she shared the track list and cover art.

In another post, the award-winning DJ wrote “Surprise… Full tracklist and artists on #OriginalCopy the debut album by me!” On the list are Wyclef Jean, Ghanaians Stonebwoy and Efya. Also on the album are Julian Marley and Sir Shina Peters, Fireboy DML, Teni Makanaki, Seyi Shay, Miss Banks, Nonso Amadi and a couple of others. Cuppy, the Apple music radio host had announced ‘Jollof On The Jet’ as the lead song to the ‘Original Copy’ project which will be released through UK based music imprint, Platoon.

Curated on the track list are song titles such as Epe featuring Efya, Labalaba featuring Seyi Shay, Wale featuring Wyclef Jean, Cold Heart Killer, featuring Darkod, P.O.Y featuring YCEE & Ms Banks, Karma featuring Stonebwoy, Litty Lit with Teni, Feel Good with Fireboy DML and the title track ‘Original Copy’ which comes in as interlude. The album parades 14 guest artistes in all, including Nigerian music sensation, Rema and Tanzanian recording artiste, Rayvanny who were featured in the two minutes fifty four seconds ‘Jollof On The Jet’ first single off her album.

Speaking on the new single, Cuppy says – “Working on this collaboration was so uplifting. Due to social-distancing, we didn’t actually record in the studio together, but the beat encapsulated all of us and I truly believe we have created a delicious masterpiece!” Since she released her first single back in 2017, Cuppy has been building her catalogue as an afropop curator with singles featuring artistes like Zlatan, Tekno and many more.

Now primed and set to rollout her forthcoming album, which was first conceived as EP, sensational DJ Cuppy who is the daughter of billionaire businessman Femi Otedola, has started on a strong note, tapping superstars for a celebration of the African partying experience; great music from across continents, and dance floor romance with afro-pop tunes.
