Omah Lay Premieres New Song “imagine” featuring Aitch on BBC Radio 1
Nigerian singer-songwriter Omah Lay premiered a new song “imagine” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
This time, he teamed up with British rapper Aitch on the track.
The song is featured on the deluxe version of his debut album “Boy Alone”, which was released on June 15, 2023.
It was written by Stanley Omah Didia, Harrison James Armstrong, Kevin Mike Gbaguidi, and Oluwadamilola Adedolapo Aminu. Produced by BGRZ.
Omah Lay told Clara Amfo about the song, “I mean, I think you already answered the question. He's like Aitch is Aitch still really nobody else is nobody else can replicate him. It's just I was while I was working on 'imagine'. I hit the block. I was stuck with a song somewhere and somehow somebody from my team heard the song and everybody was gassed up and then Marshall mentioned it to me that I should imagine what Aitch is going to sound like on this record. And ever since then the idea just couldn't leave my head. I just kept nearby with him. I played the song, I'm hearing him on the song. So I had my team send it to him, and by the time he sent the song back, it was very beautiful. This is one of my best collaborations. I didn't get to do much and I had such a beautiful song.”
- The deluxe version of the album comprises 20-track, including the previous 14-track and six new songs.
He explained about the deluxe version, “Deluxe is more like a side B you know, is it is it is very common. Everybody knows that while I was making more I was in a dark place. And then by the time, I was done taking the album but the album was out. I was out of where I was, I was stuck, I'm still stuck doing a lot of interviews and explaining where I was while I was making an album. So I felt like this side B would complete the story because like, I was in a dark place and I'm in a new place now and it makes a lot of sense in my audience, my fans understand the whole stories to decide these like completing the truths that I told with the album. And I think I've been why I'm very much comfortable talking about my downtimes in my eyes because I feel like I'm a human at the end of the day feeling, we're all humans. There's really nothing wrong in actually being open and honest about your humanity.”
