Emerging music artist KAESTYLE and Grammy-winning producer LeriQ have unveiled their new collaborative project Asylum, released via Keyqaad Records. LeriQ, a highly esteemed producer with a longstanding collaboration history with Burna Boy and other prominent figures in afrobeats like Wizkid and Wande Coal, blends his distinct production style with KAESTYLE's strong vocals and street-smart lyricism. Asylum, consisting of five tracks with lead single “21”, also serves as KAESTYLE's second EP, following the highly acclaimed KAE'S STUDY that was released in October of the previous year.
KAESTYLE and LeriQ synergize their potent talents as producers and songwriters to present a captivating fusion of afrobeats and R&B on the engaging Asylum- exploring themes of love, passion, hard work, and everything in between. The project consists of the laid-back, vivid “21”, the lead single centred around a young lady in her twenties who catches the fancy of KAESTYLE. On standout track “eMOTION”, KAESTYLE flows seamlessly on the ‘afrobeats meets R&B’ track, underscored by warm, uplifting synths and crisp percussion. Closer "Ugly Truth" builds a potent, hypnotizing groove with airy backing vocals, watery synths, and bouncy percussion, laced with atmospheric, catchy vocals from KAESTYLE.
The latest from KAESTYLE and LeriQ, Asylum presents a mesmerizing, colorful blend of afrobeats, R&B, and more, presenting 5 balmy songs that make for apt soundtracks for the late summer.
