“The Eagle has landed!!
The highly anticipated extended player (EP) release, City of Dreams, by AbOriginal Music flagship artiste Eclipse is finally with us.
A concise and diverse body of work, spanning a short but oh-so-sweet 9-song tracklist, City of Dreams is a modern Nigerian rap & hip hop masterpiece which showcases Eclipse’s burgeoning talent, and marks his arrival as the standout hip hop act in the Nigerian music industry.
A diverse compilation of genres ranging from rap, R&B, EDM, trap music and vibrant afro beats, and featuring sizzling contributons from talented artistes such as M.I Abaga, Eva, Ruby Gyang, Demmi Vee, Poe & Evaezi, but with an unmistakable Nigerian hip hop edge, City of Dreams is a shining example of contemporary Nigerian hip hop which effortlessly meets international standards and achieves mainstream appeal without sacrificing its African origins.
Produced by Eclipse and co-produced by Ray-X, City of Dreams ambitiously and successfully covers a range of themes and genres, without losing entertainment value. For a celebration of achievement, fame and success, listen to the chest-thumping Orijo or Salamalekun 2.0. Want sizzling sex appeal and scorching lyrical chemistry? Listen to Ogini Di. Want socially conscious rhymes aimed at the urban youth, or a reflective soul-bearing affirmation of belief in one’s talents? Check out Afarawe, and No Worries. Want tongue-in-cheek humour and witty come-ons? Play Washerman and Pne More Time for you boo…..And for pure hip hop swag, nothing beats the triumphant (and aptly-named) Lights Camera Action.
Simply put: City of Dreams is a project that stands right up there with the best music out right now, and has one message to deliver: Nigerian hip hop has a new flagbearer and his name is Eclipse!! Are you ready for him?
Sit back, listen to the masterpiece, and get back to us after you’ve worn out the replay button — welcome to the City of Dreams.
