“Running” featuring Fireboy DML is the lead single that ushered in the Providence EP, Adding to LadiPoe ‘s excellent catalogue, ‘Providence’ sets a new precedent reflecting his growth with guest appearances from the likes of Fireboy DML, Amaarae, and Rema.
The carefully curated 6-track project captures moments of growth, introspectiveness, love and life, beginning with the reflective LOTR II, an abbreviation of his nickname ‘Leader of the Revival’. On the project, Ladipoe worked with signature producer Andre Vibez (Ayra Starr, Omah Lay) contributing to the pioneering Nigerian Afro-fusion sound on ‘Running’ featuring Fireboy DML. Further exploring elements of his sonic palette, Poe provides fiery anthem ‘Afro Jigga’ with a guest appearance from Rema before joining forces with the future of Afro-pop Amaarae for heavenly ‘Love Essential’.
Designed to uplift, the instantly contagious song merges Poe’s powerful rap flow and delivery with an anthemic chorus from Fireboy. With production driven by Andre Vibez, ‘Running’ reflects Poe’s musical DNA incorporating his poignant penship and feel-good spirit.
RUNNING is a motivational song that doesn’t quite strike immediately because the melody is so powerful that you’re immersed into the full experience upon a first listening.
