Nigerian-born singer Douyé returns with the title track and lead single from her sophomore album So Much Love.

Possessing a voice that has been described as comparable to that of Sade, the track is an affectionate tribute to the godfather of afrobeat and popular contemporary African music, Fela Kuti. Starting with a guitar riff reminiscent of a slowed version of Kuti’s own famous “Zombie”, Douyé goes on to express her gratitude and indebtedness to Kuti as a musical pioneer in the repeated refrains.

Check out the full album So Much Love when it drops later this year.
