Mayorkun is a lot of things, but average artist is not one of them.
Since his emergence with “Eleko” in 2016, the guy has wowed us again and again and has consistently put out quality content.
By the time he dropped his debut album, “The Mayor of Lagos” in 2018, he had already established himself as one of the most promising around here.
Fast forward to early 2021, and he’s on the list for “Artiste Of The Year” alongside heavyweights like Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy. That’s sensational, if you ask me.
And no, he did not get there by chance. He worked too hard for this. He has switched up the vibe on us more than once just so he could keep his relevance. Now he’s finally in a place where he doesn’t really need to saturate the streets with content to stay ‘relevant.’
Mayor has an album on the way, his first project since 2018 and long overdue it is. As a popstar that’s not Wizkid, it’s a surprise he has even survived this long without a body of work.
But we understand he’s been working on it, and that can only make what we get better. Or, maybe not?
“Let Me Know” is the first single off his forthcoming album, and you know what I said about Mayorkun not being an average artist, well, I’d like to change that.
This single is bang average and it’s not just because it sounds like some 2018 Tekno Impression. The question is, how can you be working on your album for this long and the first single you release feel rushed?
“Let Me Know” has been released for about a month now and it’s no surprise that it hasn’t gone far. Yes, sure, the streams are there. But nobody’s talking about it anymore. Nobody’s anticipating his album because he dropped that single.
My best guess, he’s gonna go on from here and drop something way way better before he finally releases the project, which is set to arrive later this year.
I hope to God he’s really saving the best for last, because if “Let Me Know” is an indicator of what we should be expecting, I can assure you that album is going to be the most average piece of shit we’ve ever heard. But Mayorkun is better than that, and he’s proven himself over and over, so we’ll be patient with him.
Besides, “Let Me Know” is just another average afro-pop tune, it’s not exactly bad. Bad for an artist like Mayorkun, who’s gearing for the release of his album, maybe. But it’s not that bad. As a teaser before the album, maybe it’s all right after all.
Let’s hear from you.
