NEW MUSIC: OMAH LAY & JUSTIN BIEBER | ATTENTION

The Nigerian artist Omah Lay dropped his latest cut, "Attention," tapping both JB and his go-to “Peaches” producer Harv along with Avedon to hit it out of the park. The track—set to tie in with Lay’s upcoming spring debut album "Boy Alone" finds the Biebs in unfamiliar territory as he croons through his lower register and carries the track’s first verse. But it isn’t his first run-in with Afrobeats after a couple of team-ups with BEAM in 2021; Bieber also hopped on the official remix for Wizkid’s “Essence.” This isn’t Lay’s first time linking with Bieber, as they shared space on the Masterkraft “Peaches” remix. But the 24-year-old singer is still ready to introduce more of himself to the world ahead of his tour to promote "Boy Alone," and two years after, he first took off with EPs "Get Layd" and "What Have We Done." Last year, Omah Lay spoke of the importance of living in Lagos and how Nigeria’s influence on popular music is reaching new levels. “Lagos provided me the exposure to opportunities that I needed to launch my career,” he said. “It’s an important city in that sense because it brings you closer to experiences that can shape your relationships and your sound.” Omah Lay is scheduled to tour across Europe and Australia starting March 20. Meanwhile, Bieber is currently on his world tour to promote his latest album, "Justice," which will keep the singer on the road through 2023. Bieber was forced to cancel several tour dates after testing positive for Covid-19 late last month but returned on the road.
