Legendary musician and game changer rapper, Olamide lets loose his 11th music album to hit the air waves and bless ears of fans and all music lovers. The title – UY Scuti.

On UY Scuti, Olamide tends towards Pop, R&B and Reggae/Dancehall infused records compared to what he’s done predominantly his entire career, i.e, Hip-Hop/Rap (even blending it to create street jams) and Afrobeat songs.

UY Scuti shows a more relaxed side of Olamide where he creates smooth and laid-back tunes over a span of 28 minutes, a total of 10 songs, that is. The promotional record for the album—“Rock”—already alerted fans to the sound evolution Olamide was on and the song itself (which was released just over a month ago) is a stellar itself just like the title of the album suggests, staying on different charts ever since, generating very impressive stream numbers and always being played to our ears, thanks to the massive airplay country-wide.

Features on the album include Jaywillz (on “Jailer), Layydoe (on “Rough Up”), fast-rising Pop and R&B act – Fave makes a two-time appearance, back-to-back at that on track 6 (“Want”) and track 7 (“PonPon”) while longtime collaborator and fellow rapper, Phyno rounds up the list with “Somebody”.

Olamide on UY Scuti explores subjects giving off love and sensual feelings and not hard grimey or early life lessons learnt from the ghetto. UY Scuti is sure to be that album music lovers play at the end of a stressful day or while baby making.
