He announced it a few weeks ago, but today is the day Protoje hits the virtual streets with the release of his 5th album, “In Search Of Lost Time“. A follow up to his 2018 Grammy nominated “A Matter Of Time” album, he looks to further expand his movement, and still bring a few new changes to the game. His first release since his partnership with RCA Records and Six Course Music, Protoje shows us that despite a few new changes, his formula is still timeless. With a lineup that includes Popcaan, Koffee, Lila Ike, and Wiz Khalifa, expect nothing but great offerings throughout. Backed by production from iotosh, Winta James, Supa Dups, Di Genius, Ziah, Natural High Music, and The Grei Show, you’ll be swayed by the Riddims as well. Will this be the album that not only gets the Grammy nom, but take home that golden award? Let’s see what happens in 2021 as iotosh and The Grei Show are two producers we’d love to see be a part of a “Grammy Family“.
This one goes out to all the special ladies out there. May you be like a favourite painting that can’t be parted with for anything in the world! With his 5th album on the way, Protoje starts things off with the first single, “Same So“.
Assisting Ziah on the track’s beautiful production, Protoje flexes some vocal chops that may be a surprise to many out there. When there’s that one person who takes over your every being, one who makes you want to do any and everything with them, one you just want all for yourself, you can very much relate to Protoje’s track here. It’s a beautiful thing when you have deep feelings for someone, and it’s mutually shared. Released through In.Digg.Nation/Six Course Music/RCA, expect nuff more niceness during New Abum SZN.
Accompanying the single is clean artwork by Yannick Reid, and a music video directed by JRDNMARS that can easily be your favourite video of the year, or at least top 2. Featuring dope fashion, a vast array of colourful scenes, the beautiful Celine Deidrick, and a lot of unmatched vibes, the music video will put a spark in your everything, and have you wishing you were there taking photos, putting together styles for the subjects, or just witnessing it all come together!
Looking back at the past can’t always be a bad thing as it aids in your growth, and shows how much your life has improved along the way. Lila Ike has come a long way however, and today she lets us in on her journey on “Where I’m Coming From“! With a visual directed by Nickii Kane and Lila, Lila went back to her hometown of Christiana, Manchester (Manchester’s the home of this Blog 😄) to reconnect and built a vibe with friends, family, the In.Digg.Nation team, and Chi Ching Ching! The visual also shows a younger Lila Ike during her Manchester High School (Sic Luceat Lux) days where was seen assisting the School Choir, performing at her graduation, and interacting with friends. With Lila, you know the fashion will come out as she rocked various hairstyles and outfits throughout.
With solid singles out, Lila Ike is continuing her path in being one of the upcoming greats in recent years. Regardless of where she is in life, she’ll always give thanks to The Most High for the blessings and the strength throughout. Be on the lookout for Lila Ike as she’ll be performing in a town near you soon on her headlining European Tour! Lila Ike EP on the way too.
The “Country Girl” is still making waves in music!
