“Oxlade’s ‘Ku Lo Sa’ is Big. He’s Thinking Bigger…Though he’s built a respectable repertoire of tender Afrobeats jams since 2018, Oxlade is a recent international sensation, thanks to his viral hit ‘Ku Lo Sa,’ in which he contours his delicate, refined voice around lovelorn pleas.” – Rolling Stone
“Oxlade has become a force in Afrobeats this past year.” – UPROXX
“It was only a matter of time before Oxlade proved to the world that he was a force to be reckoned with, and a special talent among the new guard of Afrobeats stars.” – OkayAfrica
(New York, NY – July 12, 2023) Today, Lagos prince of afropop Oxlade unveils his much-anticipated new track “INTOXYCATED” featuring UK rap superstar and chart-topper Dave. This new track finds the Nigerian vocalist and British rapper in true dialogue, as they dissect the modern language of love. Tired of dealing with betrayal and sick of filtering real life through social media, the artists long for the kind of meaningful connection that envelops all their senses and cuts through the artifice of online life.

Along with recent single “Ovami” ft. fellow Nigerian superstar Flavour (peaking top 30 on Nigeria’s radio chart) and produced by icon Nigerian producer Magicsticks (Davido, Ckay, Fireboy DML, Asake…), “INTOXYCATED” will appear on Oxlade’s much-anticipated debut album Oxlade From Africa, due this fall. It follows his global break-out hit in 2022, “Ku Lo Sa.”
