EDITORS’ NOTES

WurlD’s effortlessly emotional vocals guide the listener through a musical journey on Love Is Contagious. Each track balances his Nigerian heritage and Western pop influences, combining Afrobeats, juju and Apala into an intriguing blend he calls “fuji pop”. There’s the loping bass rhythm and brass-like synths of “Show You Off”, a collab with Shizzy and Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire. “Paranoid” kicks off with flute and a funky pace, and “Contagious” bubbles with rhythm. WurlD’s lustrous voice is complemented by excellent songwriting, making for a deeply infectious project with a uniquely African vibe.
