Kranium collabs with Power star
Nigerian-American artiste, Rotimi has recruited Jamaican-born entertainer Kranium for his new album.
The pair collaborated on the single Want More which is featured on the Rotimi’s album, Jeep Music Vol 1.
Both acts announced the collaboration through their social media pages recently.
Rotimi — born in New Jersey, to Nigerian parents— is known for his role as Andre 'Dre' Coleman in the STARZ original series, Power.
In an interview with Billboard last month, Rotimi said the song was inspired by his ex and how they met. He also said he wanted to give the song a ‘cool reggae vibe’ and Kranium fit in.
“The inspiration behind the record really is how I met my ex. In the song, she's in a bad relationship. I'm not saying you should leave the guy, but I'm saying I'm better for you. And it starts the project like that,” he explained. “But I wanted to do an afro-beat feel because I'm of Nigerian descent. So [I] kind of [wanted to] bring it home a little bit and make that the opening, but in a cool reggae vibe. And with Kranium, we just called his management on a Monday and he came into the studio on a Tuesday and knocked it out in five minutes, which was crazy.”
Rotimi’s eight-track project also features collabs with rappers 50 Cent and TI.
Kranium is currently signed to Atlantic Records and is best known for hit singles like Nobody Have To Know, Lifestyle, We Can, and Can't Believe.
