Oxlade – “ARABAMBI” music video

“Arabambi means ‘the child of the people.’ The community gave birth to this child, the one. It’s also the nickname of K1 De Ultimate, an iconic Nigerian Fuji musician. The melody is inspired by the American singer Miguel and the way he uses his vocals. It’s a love song but it’s still me in my braggadocious elements. It is the original song I was meant to perform for COLORSxSTUDIOS before I swapped it for ‘Ku Lo Sa.’” – Oxlade explained

In “ARABAMBI,” Oxlade croons, “Give me your love (give me your love), I want more of you. Give me your love (give me your love), all I want is you.” He further confesses, “I’ve got a lot of things on my mind and I don’t know how to say it.” The lyrics blend longing with assertiveness, as he later sings, “I don’t want you to play me, come be Beyoncé to my Jay-Z. You know I no be GenZ and if you leave me, e go pain me.” These lines beautifully encapsulate the song’s romantic yet self-assured vibe.

With “ARABAMBI,” Oxlade not only showcases his vocal prowess but also builds anticipation for his debut album. This single is a testament to his growing influence in the Afrobeats genre, promising even more exciting music to come.

“ARABAMBI” also follows on the heels of “Intoxycated,” the red-hot collaboration with UK rap star Dave. A smooth single that dissects the modern language of love, “Intoxycated” reached the Top 50 of the UK official charts, garnered coverage in The New York Times, and earned Hottest Record distinction from BBC Radio 1.

“I want you to be my queen.”

Oxlade‘s rise to mainstream recognition continued in full force last year with a nomination for Best Afrobeats Song at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards. Oxlade’s BBMA nomination followed a strong showing at the 2023 Headie Awards, where he received four nominations including Best Song Of The Year and Best Recording Of The Year. Last summer, Oxlade raised his profile with incredible live performances, including a performance with Usher at the Global Citizen Festival in Ghana, and a performance alongside Wizkid at the Accor Arena in France.
