Kwad shifts the 'Energy' with his latest single

Kwad is used to dancing magnificently on the thin line that separates two distinct cultures without missing a step. Born Christopher Oppong in Accra, Ghana - Kwad moved to Boston, Massachusetts in high school and took with him a love of music. Though he didn’t start making music until he was 18, his love for music served as a bridge between American and African cultures.

Just like a perfect blend between Highlife, Afrobeats, Hip-Hop & Dancehall, Kwad represents the best versions of both cultures. The rapper/singer’s music is colourful, soothing, honest and confident. Nowhere is this more evident than on his latest single ‘Energy’.

‘Energy’ is a bouncy mid-tempo tune that sneaks up on you slowly. The opening bells lure you in and the drums hold your body in a trance forcing it to move in sync with the rhythm. Kwad enters the song with a sexy baritone belting “she a bad mankiller, she got me on the road I’m a dealer”.

Kwad’s verse sits comfortably between rapping and singing melody-driven yet lyrical. His mood and demeanour is complemented by Miochido, the featured co-star, whose soft crooning can only be described as sultry.

‘Energy’ is the perfect backdrop for a night of sensual dancing under low lights with a strong drink in hand.

The production on ‘Energy’ is the blend between Afrobeats, R&B and Island vibes that lovers of the UK scene have become accustomed to from acts like J Hus, NSG and Kojo Funds.

Kwad lists Travis Scott & Wizkid amongst his influences.

‘Energy’ is now available to stream/purchase on all digital music platforms here: https://push.fm/fl/cyd5vlmq
