Afrobeats superstar, Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has released his highly anticipated fifth studio album, “More Love, Less Ego.” The album contains 13 tracks with appearances from Don Toliver, Skepta, Arya Starr, Shenseea, and Skillbeng.
The album was supposed to be released last week, but it was delayed due to the tragic death of fellow musician Davido’s son. Two promotional singles were released in support of the album, including “Bad to Me” and “Money & Love.”
“More Love, Less Ego,” is the follow-up to his 2020 album, “Made in Lagos,” which has over a billion streams across all streaming platforms. The RIAA also certified the album gold in the United States for selling more than 500,000 units.
For the majority of the album’s production, Wizkid worked with his main producer, P2J. Kel P, Sammy Soso, and P Prime provided additional production. Wizkid told Apple Music in the run-up to the album’s release that “it is time to show the world what we need at this time, and that is a whole lot of love.”
Wizkid had earlier performed the album for Apple music at the Roundhouse in London. His performance will be available to stream on Apple music on November 14. Two days later, he will perform at Madison Square Garden in New York for the first time, followed by a performance at the American Music Awards on Nov. 20, for which he is nominated for two awards.
“More Love Less Ego” is available on all streaming platforms.
