The last time we checked in with african pop producer Sarz, he’d just come off the release of Wizkid’s “Come Closer,” and dropped off the video for his collaborative smash “Get Up,” featuring DJ Tunez and Flash. Now, he’s back on the beat with Nigerian singer WurlD, who’s best known for his own electro-soul leaning take on african pop, heard on his bubbling 2016 track “Show You Off.”
Premiering today on The FADER is a new collaboration from the two called “Trobül,” and it’s the lead single from an upcoming collaborative project of the same name. The track’s a slower one, Sarz’s sensual and pared-down production providing the perfect grooves for WurlD’s voice to shine and soar over, ringing clear as he sings about the only woman he’s got eyes for.
“The vision behind creating this song was to add a new dimension to Afro-inspired music,” WurlD shared with The FADER over email, “while moving the culture forward progressively. SARZ chimed in about the collaboration as well, sharing, “If there’s one thing I love about Trobül, it definitely has to be how natural making this amazing song came about. Energies don’t lie.” Listen to Trobül above, and look out for Sarz and WurlD’s collaborative project of the same name, due out this summer.
