Nigerian-born singer and songwriter, Nú Baby, has announced the release of his new single, “Tampico.” The track is a colourful afro-soul love rendition, on its way to becoming a summertime hit song.
Nú Baby is a Canadian-based independent artiste who hails from Ibadan, Nigeria. The gifted singer is a genre-blending artiste who explores multiple genres such as Soul, RnB, Pop, Afrobeat and Grime. Nú Baby also infuses his personal style to his art, combining Nigerian Pidgin and English language in his lyrics, to create his own unique afro-pop and afro-soul style.
With “Tampico,” the talented artiste offers listeners dance-inducing sounds with catchy lyrics. “Tampico” is produced by Hyphen and Gmastered, and is layered with upbeat afro-drums, guitar chord arrangements, and afro-jazz inspired saxophone sounds. Nú Baby’s use of afro-drums and afro-jazz saxophones is also evident in his debut EP, All the Love I Need, which put the artiste’s genre-blending style on display.
Nú Baby’s 2022 three-tracked EP, All the Love I Need, featured the sultry song, “What Can I Do,” the afro-soul “Red Light Interlude,” and the rhythmic jazz, afro-funk and afro-soul infused “Danc/O.” With “Tampico,” Nú Baby continues his stylistic exploration of afro-infused sounds that are catchy and inviting.
