May 3, 2024 –Tapping into undeniable chemistry once again, rising Nigerian stars  Azanti and PsychoYP serve up a scorching new joint single entitled “Naija Funk” out now via Def Jam Recordings. Listen HERE and watch the visualizer HERE. It bulldozes the way for their forthcoming collaborative album, YP & Azanti, Vol. 2, out May 31, 2024.

“Naija Funk” hinges on the inimitable interplay between the 20-year-old singer, songwriter, producer, and “boy wonder” Azanti and Nigerian rap phenomenon PsychoYP. An earthy beat propels the track’s momentum as Azanti immediately confesses, “I should’ve done you better. Over an Afrobeats groove, PsychoYP counters with airtight and gritty rhymes. Meanwhile, the visualizer spotlights their back-and-forth as they perform in between a professional photo shoot. It serves as the perfect precursor to YP & Azanti, Vol. 2.

It also lands in the wake of their most recent collaboration “Clear Road. Beyond piling up 1.2 million Spotify streams and counting, it reeled in critical acclaim from GRUNGECAKE and NOTJUSTOK who promised, “The unique blend of Azanti‘s artistic flair and PsychoYP‘s energy infuses ‘Clear Road’ with a depth that resonates, creating a captivating journey for the listeners.”

Audiences worldwide experienced the duo’s prowess, passion, and power for the first time on 2020’s YP & Azanti, Vol. 1. The latter generated millions of streams and garnered tastemaker praise. Pulse Nigeria applauded the album as, “a rainbow of music and a bed of solfa roses,” and 49th Street noted, “YP & Azanti Vol. 1 is an effortless display of rap sung skill combined with trap, R&B, and Afrofusion; creating a distinct and new sound out of Nigeria for the world stage.”

However, they’re back, bigger, and better than ever together on Vol. 2!
