Iconic France-based Nigerian singer and recording Artist, Asa, is ready to drop her next album. Asa has just returned from a 5-year break.
Asa Bukola Elemide, widely known as Asa, earlier this morning made a motion announcement through a shared snippet on her social media to her fans. The sensational music writer shared a snippet of an untitled, yet impressive music video on her Instagram. In the end, she used the caption ‘14.05’. The caption at the post-play indicates a tentative date of the released album which is Tuesday, May 14, 2019.
The shared snippets showed a young man dancing behind a blue background as it gradually transitioned to show Asa in a sleeping position. Following this, a date pop-up brought the video to an end.
The 34-year-old’s last released album was in 2014. The album was titled ‘Bed of Stone’. The album had hit tracks like ‘Dead Again’, ‘Eyo’, ‘Satan Be Gone’, ‘The One That Never Comes’, and ‘Moving On’. After the album release, Asa embarked on a world tour from 2015 to 2017.
However, in 2014, it was reported that before the release of ‘Bed of Stone’, Asa sold 400,000 albums worldwide.
Earlier this year, Asa has been called forward by her fans. Her fans have grown out of patience and have been yearning for the next album from the enigmatic singer.
While the new music is slated for May 14, she is yet to reveal the title of the song.
Asa’s music influences grew over the years from the collection of great music her father had built up for his work as a cinematographer.
After the successful release of her first album, Asa pitched her tent beyond Africa, making her enjoy international recognition. She has several soundtrack appearances, with the popular soundtrack for GTBank – The Place To Be’ – recorded in 2009.
