Ckay – Sad Romance
The world-famous singer, songwriter, and producer CKay crystallizes his emotive brand of Afrobeats in his debut album. The musician, whose real name is Chukwuka Ekweani, recalls his experience with romantic relationships via honest lyrics and lyrical fluidity. Sad Romance combines saxophones, keys, log drumming, and violins in an organic way to infuse Afropop with languid soul, seductive R&B, jazzy orchestration, and Afrohouse.
On the dualistic “samson and delilah” with Mayra Andrade, the energizing amapiano on the Davido and Focalistic-assisted “WATAWI,” the unrepentant acoustics of “you cheated, i cheated too,” and seductive overtones of “come close” meet the tropical themes. Sad Romance’s duet with Ronisia, “lose you,” which enfolds French lyrics inside its passionate, soprano soundscapes, best exemplifies the album’s synthesis of sounds and cultures. The Blaqbonez collaboration “HALLELUJAH” and the Joeboy-assisted “capture my soul” are among the four new songs that are included in the 2023 release of the deluxe version.
