‘Hold Me,’ Dice Ailes’ first single of 2022, deviates from his usual themes of money and the upscale lifestyle to croon sensual infatuation on the musical that enthuses listening ears with its Caribbean melodies, bold swanky vocals from Dice Ailes, and the Contralto harmonies of Tiwa Savage, who makes a perfect collaborator on the R&B number that evokes the good ole 90s
This is great news for Dice Ailes fans who have been waiting for new music since his last official release, Money Dance in 2021, which has amassed over a million worldwide streams. Remember that the same year, he created his entertainment label, TMM (The Money Mob), and at the conclusion of the summer, he collaborated on one of Naija’s most viral sounds of 2021, Focus, to release a remix.
He then kicked off the new year with the first in a series of promotional events in Nairobi, Kenya, as part of the buildup to a planned EP project, which he has already disclosed will be a collection of classics.
Hold Me‘ is the first single from the upcoming EP, which will be released next month and features Tiwa Savage, whose content extends beyond her insanely sweet voice. There’s the arsenal she wields as a self-described African bad girl and Naija Queen of Afrobeats, plus the stanship she wields from a cult following of millions of Savage soldiers on and off social media.
An accompanying visual component for this collaboration has been shot and awaiting a release date.
