Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Da' T.R.U.T.H. and rising Afro-Gospel sensation, Limoblaze have teamed up to release collaborative album 'Bridges'.
The nine-track album features atmospheric beats, catchy melodic elements, raw instrumentation, and grasping vocals by the artists. The release will take the listeners into a musical trance with strong messages, catchiness, and hard-hitting instrumentation.
This collaborative record is a testament and a journey to both artist’s diverse sound and style.
Da’ T.R.U.T.H states: “In these dark and polarizing times, Bridges is a hope-filled album that fuses hip-hop and Afrobeat. It’s Upbeat, fun, and energetic melodies will make you dance, while it’s provocative themes will make you think. Two of the most highly respected artists in their respective genres have teamed up to give us a body of work that will move the culture forward in building bridges, not barriers.”
'Bridges' is highly-anticipated album will be available on all digital stores on November 20th.
Manager for Nigerian Limoblaze, Malawian Bob Phondo described 'Bridges' as a body of work that focuses on bringing two or more worlds together.
“In a time where walls of hostility are being built across the nations, instead of a barrier, we decided to build a bridge. This is not just another project, it’s a moment in history. We’re bridging the black diaspora, two different genres, continents, countries and tongues. Both the substance of the album and its form carry equal weight. This album, is fun but not shallow, it's groovy but not empty. It’s the perfect blend of message, amusement and music," he said.
Speaking on the album being released in Malawi Phondo said there’s a first time for everything pointing out this moment is about doing something fresh, going against the status quo, leading the charge and carving out a new lane.
“We’re not concerned about how things have been done, we’re doing things our way and Malawi deserves to be in front and center when it comes to Christian music.
Limoblaze himself said: "Your country is one of my favorite places to tour because the love is just insane! It's time to give the love back! We just want Malawi to know that it’s a priority to us. That’s it!"
The album will be available on every continent and in every country on the globe citing that is the point of building bridges.
Explaining the collaborative effort on the whole album as opposed to just one or two tracks Phondo said gave two reasons.
“It was all just a matter of time before I found the artist that I felt had both the creativity and Godly character to carry the mantle. In order to accomplish that goal, I knew one or two songs wouldn’t be enough. I knew that we would have to make a statement and Bridges is that statement being made. The second reason why is because I wanted to put together a body of work that was more reflective of my global experiences,” Phondo said.
