American rapper, singer- Don Toliver teams up with Nigerian Afrobeats star, Wizkid for the release of this new song title “Slow Motion“. The track is taken from the new ‘Love Sick’ album on which Don Toliver explores courtship.
Equal parts R&B and Trap (“Trap-n-B”), Don Toliver has Houston, TX in his DNA. Growing up listening to dominant regional figures like Big Mo and Mike Jones, he developed his soundscape – which includes distinct lyrical rhyme schemes combined with futuristic, forward approaches – after broadening his influences to include artists like Pharrell, Sade, Marvin Gaye, and Dom Kennedy.
The result is an expressive and quick-witted artist who’s able to embody multiple vibes in one – ride out music, turn-up anthems, chill playlist, wavy jams… While he does play around with effects like auto-tune, Toliver does it more so for style vs. using it as a crutch (you’ll hear reverb and some effects to create a slightly elevated sound in areas).
“SLOW MOTION” marks the second collaboration between the two artists, following Don’s feature on Wizkid’s November 2022 track, “Special,” from the latter’s fifth studio album, More Love, Less Ego. Wizkid dropped heart warming Afrobeats melody on this R’n’B record.
Listen and Enjoy!
