Ghanaian Highlife, Afrobeats musician and Dancer/ Choreographer Mr Drew, has revealed the originality behind his new album dubbed, ‘Alpha’.
Talking about the inspiration behind the album, he noted, the album literally stands for his dominance in the game as a new artiste, and the back to back hits he keeps producing.
Talking to Dorothy Cornelius on Y 107.9 FM’s Weekend Rush Show, he said, “We also wanted to define my journey very well because Covid-19 messed up a lot of things for us last year. So this year, my team and I decided to take that chance and start it properly. We want to give people a good story so that when you’re telling everyone else about Mr. Drew, they can have a very nice story to tell.”
Responding to how he has been able to pull through with Covid-19 in the system, he said, “After the album was released, we were moving on to plan a concert but, because of Covid and some restrictions, you can’t have so many people at one place. I wish we could have mini-concerts in every region which unfortunately isn’t possible at the moment.”
Mr Drew added that even with the concert, he and his team are a bit sceptical because they cannot tell how things are going to be in the next month or two. “But we keep hoping for the best.”
Asked to mention his favourite song on the album, he said, “I don’t have a favourite. There are some very good songs and collaborations on there from Falaaa to Party and Good Vibes. I love all the songs on the album.”
Mr Drew however noted that the whole album, for now, is exclusive only to Boomplay and, “I have a lot lined up for the album. From challenges to everything you can think of and they all come with prices. So fans should stay tuned.”
