Tiwa Savage — “Somebody’s Son” feat. Brandy

Nigerian superstar Tiwa Savage’s yearning vocal and evocative writing have taken her career from backup vocalist and writer to the forefront of the R&B-meets-Afrobeats international takeover. In 2020, the singer released Celia to resounding success, with previous singles like “Dangerous Love” laying the groundwork for a blockbuster album. Today, Tiwa Savage releases Water & Garri, which features Amaarae, Brandy, and Tay Iwar.

Brandy-assisted “Somebody’s Son” is the emotive standout of the EP. A scene of pining after fulfilling love is built upon production from Michael Segun Ajayi. Tiwa sings of putting her heart back on the line after being scorned with such a sweet affect, hitting topline notes from her gut. Brandy lends a gentle voice to the spiraling tale of loves lost and searched for.
