“I had a lot of fun working on this project with Emotional Oranges. It was my first time in LA and the experience was amazing thanks to the EO team. Being from different parts of the world, I believe the music here is significant in pushing the barriers of genres forward. There’s a blend of R&B, Afrobeats, soul, amapiano, and so many other musical inspirations that birthed the fittingly titled EP, ‘Blended.’ I’m excited to have everyone take it in and can’t wait to perform the songs as well.” – Nonso Amadi stated

The project perfectly marries the signature vibrant R&B/pop sound of Emotional Oranges with Nonso Amadi‘s infectious Afropop flair, to create something that intentionally brings light and color to the gray month of January. ‘Blended’ aptly merges together this satisfying blend of various musical influences and styles, which highlights the trio’s great musical inclination and multi-faceted combined artistic style.

Not much is known of Emotional Oranges. Described by critics and fans alike as experimental and futuristic, Emotional Oranges are the physical manifestation of alternative R&B, Soul, and Funk. Provocateurs extraordinaire, Emotional Oranges have established themselves as one of the most exciting new acts without ever truly revealing themselves. Their debut singles, “Motion” and “Personal” immediately created a cult following. The Juice Vol. I, Vol. II, and Vol. III has amassed over 400 million streams globally. In June 2021, they released their first collaborative mixtape, “The Juicebox.” With features with artists like Vince Staples, Channel Tres, Kiana Ledé, Becky G, and more, the duo reached to shatter genre boundaries on the project.
