Adekunle Gold Let’s It Be Known That This Is “The Life I Chose”

Adekunle Gold returns with his new single, “The Life I Chose”.

Building buzz worldwide, Nigerian phenomenon Adekunle Gold serves up a brand new single–entitled “The Life I Chose“–out now via Def Jam Recordings.

Once again, he reteams with frequent collaborator and GRAMMY® Award-winning chart-shaking producer Kel-P (Angélique Kidjo, Wizkid, Davido) on the track.

Off-kilter synths underscore an inventive soundscape, blurring lines between genre boundaries and borders with a blend of Afrobeats and Pop.

Lyrically, he takes a victory lap, culminating on a confident chorus, “This is the life I chose.”

Be on the lookout for a premiere of a cinematic music video to accompany the single.

Adekunle Gold continues to expand the scope of his signature sound.

He recently dropped the heartfelt “Look What You Made Me Do (Acoustic)” with his wife and fellow music superstar Simi, reeling in 111K Spotify streams and counting.

The original “Party No Dey Stop”, with Zinoleesky, catapulted into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Afrobeats Songs Chart and peaked at #3 on the Official UK Afrobeats Chart.

Plus, it has generated over 41 million Spotify streams and 17 million YouTube views on the music video. Of course, it also graced his 2023 debut for Def Jam Recordings, Tequila Ever After.

Beyond piling up over 265 million worldwide streams, the album incited critical applause from many major media outlets.

Adekunle is about to embark on a headline UK tour in conjunction with Cokobar, which commences at Forum Birmingham on February 24th, then goes to Albert Hall in Manchester on February 25th before concluding at London’s Wembley OVO Arena on March 3rd.

This follows his sold-out O2 Academy Brixton show at the end of 2022 in support of his critically acclaimed fourth studio album, ‘Catch Me If You Can’, and his recently concluded high-profile North American tour produced by Live Nation and Duke Concept, packing venues in major cities across the United States and Canada to bring ‘Tequila Ever After’ to life nightly in front of sold out audiences.

‘Tequila Ever After’ includes the singles “Party No Dey Stop“, “Ogaranya“, and the tracks from his EP ‘Tio Tequila‘ that came out earlier this year.

The 17-track album features production from frequent collaborator Kel-P and Labrinth as well as features from Nigerian singer Zinoleesky, Texas superstar Khalid, legends Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers in addition to Gold’s wife Simi.

It sets the stage for more to come from Adekunle Gold in 2024.

Expect more music, shows, and surprises.

Stay tuned!!!
