Across his career, rising singer, Ayanfe, has displayed an immaculate understanding of the coupling of lyrics and melodies, presenting both aspects of his artistry in constant conversation with one another with songs like “Pretend” and “Focus” portending a mainstream breakthrough.
His latest song, “Migrate,” serves up notice of that promise as he dexterously trades verses with crossover pop star, Davido, across the song’s three-minute runtime, running through his desires and hopes for a relationship with an assured flow. Subtly nudging his guest into his orbit, Ayanfe rides this mid-tempo beat and offers a mix of impassioned declarations and promises while Davido‘s gruffly emotiveness is subsumed into the rising tide of the track.
Smoothly passing the baton to each other, their dynamism shines through but importantly it shows Ayanfe‘s capability to rise to the occasion without being overawed. Migrate is the first single from Ayanafe’s upcoming ‘All that Matters‘ EP.
