Recently emer­ging as the first flag­ship artist bene­fit­ing from the new ARTS­PLIT, MAD Solu­tions, and ENGAGE Part­ner­ship, Nigeri­an sing­er King Perryy has returned for the release of his brand new body of work dubbed Con­tin­ent­al Playl­ist – a sev­en-song EP that affirms his abil­ity to turn on a dime, going wherever inspir­a­tion and life leads. 

A ground­break­ing artist, King Perry is one of the most unique and intriguing fig­ures in Africa’s expand­ing dance­hall scene. With the release of Con­tin­ent­al Playl­ist, which also fea­tures appear­ances by Tekno, Vic­tony, Ria Sean, and 1da Ban­ton, he cements his place as one of Africa’s most import­ant voices. While the pro­jects’ title cel­eb­rates King Perryy’s con­tin­ent­al sound, the pro­ject pulls Afrobeats, dance­hall, reg­gae, drill, pop, and more into an eclect­ic, layered sound that defies simple genre tags.

Speak­ing on the new pro­ject, King Perryy said: 

“It was a great exper­i­ence fin­ish­ing up this pro­ject. I spent the whole of last year work­ing on this pro­ject and pro­du­cing 50 songs, exper­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent sounds, try­ing new melod­ies with my voice, and just dis­cov­er­ing myself in the music. I made sure I was get­ting the right mes­sage across by mak­ing sure my songs con­veyed who I was as an artist as well as where I was at the time.”

Con­tinu­ing to chal­lenge his artistry by branch­ing into new sounds, Con­tin­ent­al Playl­ist finds King Perryy expand­ing his lyr­i­cism and dynam­ic cre­ativ­ity while remain­ing true to his south­east­ern roots. It’s via his authen­t­ic storytelling and fine-tuned pen that King Perry has amassed a devout fol­low­ing that’s eagerly await­ing his fol­low-up to 2021’s debut album, Cit­izen of The World. He stead­ily carved his lane in 2022 with fiery singles like “Go Ger­man” which fea­tured Bella Shmurda and Back­road Gee, and “Tur­key Nla” remix fea­tur­ing Tekno. The NAT­IVE describes the track as “catchy and filled with mem­or­able hooks,” and since its release, the song has received thou­sands of streams globally. 

Fol­low­ing the release of his highly anti­cip­ated second single “On God”, and now his Con­tin­ent­al Playl­ist EP, King Perryy remains con­sist­ently driv­en by his core eth­os of com­munity and the uni­ver­sal­ity of music. The self-pro­claimed Cit­izen of The World has taken the Afro-dance­hall world by storm, gar­ner­ing acclaim from industry heavy­weights includ­ing Timaya, Tekno, Kizz Daniels, and more. He is poised to become one of today’s lead­ing dance­hall artists, and with his effort­less deliv­ery, extraordin­ary song­writ­ing, infec­tious energy, and propensity to light up a room, he’s well on his way to becom­ing a house­hold name and head­lining act.
