Nigerian drill emcee, singer and lyricist; PSYCHOYP is back with an exciting double a-side single release by way of, MIDLIFE CRISIS + WYDTM, which are both produced by long-time collaborator and burgeoning British producer, Dylan Scott.
“I spent a lot of time studying UK music and the various styles in the black music scene. This song is pure vibes inspired by the Craig David era that I grew up listening to with my older siblings when I was much younger and we lived in the UK with my mum. It’s an upbeat dance track about turning to material things to deal with heartbreak, and I just had to tap Apex Village prodigy Azanti for the garage-themed tune”.
Driven by a jumpy bassline, lush piano arrangements and ethereal trap-infused harmonies, and held together excellently by his infectious melodic rap flow and gripping storytelling lyrics, ‘Midlife Crisis’ sees PsychoYP waxing lyrical about falling for an older woman, who might just be with him because she’s going through a midlife crisis. ‘WYDTM’ on the other hand, is a more uptempo UK Garage-influenced offering that sees PsychoYP linking up with fellow Apex Village artist Azanti to deliver a catchy offering about trying to spend your way out of heartbreak.
