Nigerian rapper, singer, and songwriter, AYLØ, takes listeners to “Paris!” on his latest release. AYLØ is recognized as a pioneer of Nigeria’s emerging seminal subgenre known as Alté, a fusion of R&B, indie, neo soul, hip-hop, and afropop sounds.
“Paris!” is co-produced by fellow leaders of the Alté movement, Le Mav and Odunsi The Engine. It opens with a simple, catchy drumbeat before it melts into hypnotic, downtempo instrumentation.
This single is the first taste of what to expect from AYLØ’s forthcoming mixtape, DNT DLT,set for a July 30 release. DNT DLT is the long-awaited follow up to his critically acclaimed 2017 EP, Insert Project Name.
