Troniq presents new EP ‘Eclipse‘ Featuring Oxlade and Latest Single ‘Ojuju’
The new 4-track EP conveys other-wordly love stories, features the enchanting new single ‘Ojuju’ – which saw him trending on Twitter for hours following its surprise release last week and Highsnobiety highlighting his ‘heavenly vocals’ – and once again showcases his one-of-a-kind mix of Afrobeat, R&B and Country influences with his distinctive, mesmerising vocals and captivating song-writing and storytelling skills that have earned him hordes of fans across the globe and helped him to rack up an impressive 100 million-plus streams since his debut in 2017.
Oxlade says: “An eclipse occurs when two celestial bodies are involved. This love story is the result of two godlike creatures falling in love and that love story if completed would be the most powerful force in the universe. Sadly not all love stories have a happy ending.”
The new EP is the follow-up to the smooth single ‘DKT’ and his debut ‘Oxygene’ EP which featured the hit lead single ‘Away’ which was named as one of Rolling Stone’s ’50 Biggest Songs of 2020’.
Oxlade has gone on to feature on the P2J remix to the Skip Marley and H.E.R track ‘Slow Down’ alongside Davido, collaborated with Nigerian producer Ojahbee on the track ‘Dutty Love’ and recently featured on Spinall’s album GRACE on the track ‘Jabole’ with Ycee. on Ice Prince’s single ‘KOLO’ and on Sarkodie’s new album NO PRESSURE on the new fan favourite ‘Overload 2’. Outside of music, Oxlade has been adamant about using his voice and platform to raise awareness around real issues affecting everyday Nigerians, including last year’s #EndSARS protests which he played an integral part in.
Also known for the hit song ‘Sing’ with Fireboy DML and collaborations with acts such as Reekado Banks and DJ Tunez, another breakthrough moment for Oxlade was his feature on the Blaqbonez track ‘Mamiwota’ in 2019. In the same year, Oxlade featured alongside Sneakbo on Skengdo’s UK underground track ‘Brixton Boy’ and he performed to a 20,000-strong audience at the world famous O2 Arena in London at Wizkid’s Starboy Fest.
