Editors’ Notes Nigerian singer/songwriter Korede Bello draws on an eclectic blend of Afrobeats, dancehall and alt-pop to deliver his hotly anticipated debut, Belloved. The album heralds a departure from Bello’s previous guitar-strumming singles—in a coming-of-age display of lyrical dexterity, his nimble voice floats over an irresistibly intricate palette of West African rhythms, deep synths and sophisticated vocal harmonies. Tracks like "Oh Baybe (Hermosa)" reveal a passionate and tender side articulated in a mix of English, French and Spanish, while "Repete" draws the listener in with Bello's playful charisma and charm.
