Oxlade unveils much-anticipated new track “Intoxycated,” featuring UK rap superstar and chart-topper Dave. An addicting fusion of hip-hop and Afrobeats, “Intoxycated” finds the Nigerian vocalist and British rapper in dialogue, as they dissect the modern language of love. Tired of dealing with betrayal and sick of filtering real life through social media, the artists long for the kind of meaningful connection that envelops all their senses and cuts through the artifice of online life.
Oxlade and Dave have an infectious chemistry, as Oxlade adopts a more rhythmic flow to complement Dave’s locked-in cadence. Gathering 95K+ TikTok creations prior official track release and getting UK’s BBC Radio 1 Hottest Record for launch day, “Intoxycated” is set to be among summer’s biggest hits.
Along with recent single “Ovami” ft. fellow Nigerian superstar Flavour (peaking top 30 on Nigeria’s radio chart) and produced by icon Nigerian producer Magicsticks (Davido, Ckay, Fireboy DML, Asake), “Intoxycated” will appear on Oxlade’s much-anticipated debut album Oxlade From Africa, due this fall via Epic Records France.
