Former background vocalist to Whitney Houston and Mary J. Blige, Tiwa Savage comes through with her third LP titled “Celia.” The 13-track project is the songstress’ follow-up to “R.E.D” and “Once Upon A Time” albums.
The album features the likes of British singer: Sam Smith, Stefflon Don, Davido, Naira Marley, Dice Ailes and others.
“Temptation” which features Sam Smith is one of the high point of the album.
Tiwa disclosed to Apple Music:
“Celia is my mum’s name and I wanted to pay homage to her. She embodies everything that this album is. It speaks to a strong, modern African woman. This album is Afrobeats from a very female perspective. It’s an extension of the African woman: she still values her culture and her upbringing, but she’s also well-travelled, so it’s blending those two worlds. I want every woman that listens to this to feel attached and connect to it.”
With tracks like “Dangerous Love,” “Koroba” and Sam Smith’s assisted “Temptation“, already on the charts, the album would certainly live to the hype.
