The newly released EP, “African Baddie,” by GRAMMY-winning Yemi Alade, is available right now through Effyzzie Music.
On the 10-track album, Spice, Phyno, Bisa Kdei, Zlatan, Bramsito, Joe Dwt File, and Lemar were all featured.
Prior to the official debut of African Baddie, Yemi Alade dropped the catchy single “Bubble It” featuring Spice. The song received more than 6,000,000 views on YouTube and propelled the Nigerian singer to more than 20,000,000 views on Tik Tok.
“I’m an African Baddie, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have emotions,” says Yemi. “Every woman can relate to all the moods on this EP. One minute we are begging a man not to hurt us again and the next we’re in front of the mirror reminding ourselves who is really in control.”
Not only does Yemi Alade guide fans through different moods on her new EP, but she’s also navigating between new genres with ease. Dancehall, Highlife, and Afrobeats are all represented in this body of work.
AFRICAN BADDIE follows Yemi’s Grammy Award Winning contributions to Angelique Kidjo’s “Mother Nature” Album earlier this year and her contributions to Beyonce’s BLACK IS KING of 2021. For Yemi, this EP garners the same level of attention and recognition, capturing her versatility as an international artist.
