Major AJ taps Blaqbonez on My Own
Rising Chocolate City’s maestro, Ajogwu Boluwatife, popularly known as Major AJ, has returned with his debut offering for the year dubbed, My Own. On this impressive record, he tag-teams Hip Hop icon Blaqbonez to deliver an audacious return from his last project, Retroverse EP.
Produced by Damie, the record is a mid-tempo tune expressing AJ’s “disappointment” with the transactional nature of love in most climes. In this song, he conveys his reality and real-life experiences in the form of well-crafted lyrics and impeccable delivery on this song using the metaphorical city of Lagos as the hub of his disappointment.
Major AJ and Blaqbonez deliver a sonically impressive track on this new single “My Own” where Blaqbonez’s style of rap blends with Major AJ’s sweetened voice depicting their #NoLoveInLagos message to his listeners.
The perfect addition to the song is Blaqbonez’s heavy lyrics in his very prominent “sex over love style.” While AJ delivers a catchy opening and equally memorable chorus in his usual singing style, Blaqbonez brings spice to the song with his complementary rap bars. With this, the two Chocolate City stars deliver a soon-to-be anthem.
On My Own is available across music streaming services.
