Nigerian Afro-fusion artist; Lojay and internationally renowned super-producer; Sarz release a brand-new remix of recent smash single, Monalisa, featuring R&B superstar Chris Brown. Taken from their joint LV N ATTN EP last year, the original version of Monalisa became an early standout due to its hypnotic beat and infectious hooks, becoming not just one of the biggest releases in Nigeria, but a global hit that put Lojay on the map as one of Nigeria’s fastest-rising cultural exports and cemented Sarz’s reputation as the most signiﬁcant name in Afrobeats.
“At the time I was creating this song I would have never imagined hearing a Chris Brown verse on it but the best part is he actually took his time and killed it and gave the song a diﬀerent feel. He’s someone I’ve always wanted to work with so this is a really good feeling”.
Borne out of Lojay’s determination to persevere through his own dark times during the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Lojay, already a huge Sarz fan, reached out for a face-to-face meeting between the two artists. Despite Lojay hoping to collaborate on one song, Sarz decided that the two would work on an EP together and a 3 month-long boot-camp in Lagos ensued. Helmed by the explosive singles Tonongo and LV N ATTN, the EP is a reflection on heartbreak and vulnerability with a sonic journey that will not only make you get up and move but redeﬁned the parameters of Afro-Fusion sounds and aesthetics.
