Gabonese-Congolese afrofusion artist and rapper Borelson has linked up with Nigerian artist-producer Omaremii and Congolese afrobeats musician Moncliche to deliver the infectious new afrofusion track titled "411". Over a bouncy and uplifting summer-ready backdrop provided by Borelson himself and Timbaland collaborator Glenwoodonly, we see Borelson in his element, as he raps about communication being the key to any relationship. He is flanked by Nigerian newcomer Omaremii, who adds his own unique afrobeats flare to the track, and Congolese up-and-comer Moncliche, with his melodic afrorap sensibilities.
The accompanying visual also taps into the theme of the song highlighting the bad and bright side of things alongside colourful aesthetics and engaging dance routines. Overall it also offers a message of hope that shows that as long as you’re willing to make things work and communicate, there’s always a happy ending
Now residing in Canada, Borelson spent his formative years between Gabon, Congo and France, and he brings this global citizenship and multicultural background into the music industry, where he is an award-winning artist and creative. His unique afrobeats and hip-hop fusion has birthed two acclaimed albums in two years, a ‘Top 100 Songs of 2021’ accolade from CBC Music, and performances all over the world, from Toronto to Paris to Miami to Accra. His new single ‘411’ is a precursor to his biggest headline concert taking place at Toronto’s renowned Adelaide Hall on September 22.
The infectious ‘411’ comes on the back of Borelson’s recently released sophomore album Building Bridges, which was released in the autumn to rave reviews from fans and critics alike,
