KING PERRYY Shares Debut Album, ‘Citizen of the World’

Nigerian afro-dancehall star KING PERRYY has shared his debut album, Citizen of the World, today via all digital streaming platforms.

Stream HERE.

The LP features the singles “Work ‘N’ Grind,” “My Darlina,” “Waist”(feat. Kizz Daniel) and “YKTFV” (feat. PsychoYP), along with 11 new tracks. Features on the album include Nigerian music heavyweights TimayaOxladePhynoand Mayorkun, with Grammy-winning Jamaican “Riddim God” Teflon Zincfence (Chronixx, Koffee), Ghana’s GuiltyBeatz (Mr Eazi, Beyoncé) and Nigeria’s TMXO(Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage) leading the production squad.

Citizen of the World, released via Timaya’s DM Records, is an introduction to KING PERRYY’s “Continental Sound,” a fusion of afrobeats, pan-African pop, reggae and dancehall. Flexing his diversity, he also makes forays into drill — on the post-pandemic anthem “YKTFV” — and Nigerian street rap, on the Phyno collaboration, “Paulina.”

“The Continental Sound is a fusion of different genres, lifestyles and cultures,” KING PERRYY says of the project’s scope. “I’m not just ‘of’ one place, or Nigeria. I’m ‘of the world.’”

A former seminary student who once studied to become a Catholic priest, KING PERRYY has distinguished himself as one of Nigeria’s most ambitious young artists since dropping his breakthrough single “Man on Duty” (feat. Timaya) in 2018. Subsequent releases “Murder” feat. Teni and “Work N Grind” have further solidified his rep as an artist to watch within Lagos’ exploding music scene.

Citizen of the World delivers a wide range of moods, emotions and genres, opening with the Teflon Zincfence-produced “African Boy,” a motivational, bass-heavy reggae manifesto with echoes of Damian Marley’s “Welcome to Jamrock.” Other key tracks are the melodic, Guilty Beatz-produced afrobeats bop “Yawa,” which drops as a single today along with the album, and “The Funicator,” an afro-bashment anthem for ladies on the hustle.

Citizen of the World is an identity, a mindstate,” KING PERRYY says of the project. “It’s not just an album. I found the title the moment I found myself.”
