This new single is reminiscent of what has become a signature sound and delivery for Boy TAG yet different in its arrangements and message. His first single in 2018, “Talla” follows the successful releases of “Mignoncite”, “Njoka” and “Sauvagerie” which were instrumental in making Boy TAG a household name in the Kamer urban scene.
For Boy TAG, there is more to music than just rhythms, rhymes and beats; it’s a tool to tell stories and connect to the past while looking into the future. To pass on his message in “Talla”, he tabs on the legendary Tala A. Marie and samples his biggest hit “Bend Skin” to create a track that is sure to be a hit.
Of his journey so far Boy TAG says, “It’s been inspiring to work with talented individuals in the industry and to leverage my everyday life to make music that uplifts and bring joy to people. My childhood memories of this song drove me to tell a story about survival. I also wanted to reinvent this classic and make it relevant to today’s youth. I hope they will go and listen to the original after hearing this track”
“Talla”, the track title, is a play on the sample artists name. Like he says in the song, “Time wey we be dey small the way we be di sing di song e be funny …TaLLa…”. The Track will be released on Thursday Feb 1 2018 and both Video and audio will be available on all Steven’s Music Digital and video outlets.The song is produced by T-Man Nation and the video is directed by Dr Nkeng Stephens. This video is sure to go down as one of Dr Nkeng’s best works for 2018; incorporating urban scenes and traditional settings to deliver a beautiful visual.
Boy TAG will be hitting the road to promote the single and he says “I am excited about the future. I feel like I have the greatest job in the world and I intend to continue on this ride with my fans till the wheels fall off.” We are equally excited and projecting 2018 to be a break out year for Boy TAG.
