Asake Affirms Artistic Presence With Sophomore Album ‘Work

Asake

In an impressive display of talent and artistic growth, Asake has firmly established himself as a promising artiste with the release of his sophomore album, ‘Work of Art’, less than a year after his debut album ‘Mr Money With The Vibe’ took the music scene by storm.

The album cover portrays Asake in his signature slightly goofy grin, donning a pinstripe suit, surrounded by captivating paintings, including a self-portrait reminiscent of Picasso’s distinctive style.

‘Work of Art’ comprises 14 meticulously crafted songs, totalling 36 minutes and 51 seconds of musical brilliance.

With only one featured artiste, his YBNL boss Olamide on the track ‘Amapiano’, Asake takes centre stage, showcasing his individuality and creative prowess.

The album includes three previously released tracks, namely ‘2:30’, ‘Amapiano’ featuring Olamide, and the spiritually infused ‘Yoga’, which serves as a fitting closing track.

The album opener, ‘Olorun’, sets a meditative tone as Asake pays homage to the Supreme Being in Yoruba religion, followed by his proclamation of personal growth and transformation: ‘I’m a brand new man.’

In an interview with ABC News Live, Asake expressed the significance of the Yoruba language in his music.

He emphasized that it resonates with a wide audience, as many people understand and connect with its cultural richness.

Asake also shared his unique approach to creating music, highlighting its ability to evoke emotions beyond verbal comprehension.

He stated that one can feel the essence of a song without necessarily understanding its lyrics.

“Yoruba is so important to me and there are a lot of people that understand it.

“And to me, the way that I understand music is a feeling.

"Sometimes you don’t need to understand it,” he explained.

With ‘Work of Art’, Asake has demonstrated not only his musical versatility but also his commitment to delivering authentic and soul-stirring experiences to his listeners.

As his career continues to flourish, fans eagerly anticipate the artistic journey that lies ahead for this remarkable talent.
