What’s sweeter than Cotton Candy?
DJ Tunez has been hinting at something sweet over the past few weeks, releasing promotional material of cotton candy and sweet treats all over social media. The treat came in the form of a song, Cotton Candy, which officially released on July 17th and is a collaboration with Nigerian songwriter and producer LeriQ, featuring Burna Boy.
The track has a smooth, classic “Burna Boy vibe”; a different feel from Tunez’ previous tracks. But the group found a way to layer in a more upbeat tempo from time to time. Burna does not hold back on the single with catchy phrases like “Dem want di jelly inside the biscuit” and “Dem seh mi sweeta den cotton candy”. Although the song has a very calm vibe, the lyrics are undeniably addicting.
Tunez’ smash hit, Iskaba, is still making rounds globally and teaming up with LeriQ is sure to create another hit for the world to jam too. Even though this is Tunez’ first collaboration with Burna Boy, the two have been spotted working together before. Back in May, Burna Boy hit the stage at DJ Tunez’s Afro-Rave at Amazura Concert Hall, giving attendees a night to remember.
After a while of hinting at Cotton Candy’s release, the public has been ready for what these three have cooked up. As the Afrobeat genre continues to take over the summer, Cotton Candy is finally here and available on major music platforms.
