TopCheri details new album ‘Dual’
27 November 2021 | Art and Entertainment
TopCheri is ready to bless our ears with her forthcoming album. The 17-track offering features appearances from Kalux, Page (Ethnix), Tate Buti, Nally, Skrypt and more. Speaking to tjil about the project, TopCheri said ‘Dual’ symbolises tranquillity and fluidity of spirit within one self, adding that the project is a voice from her soul. She mentioned that it is packed with music that appeals to fans who are into mellow vibes as well as something for her regular dance lovers.
The musician’s previous album titles have been themed around motherhood (‘Fertile’), marriage (‘The Matrinony’), and gratitude (‘Tithe’). Asked what the new album title signifies, TopCheri explained that ‘Dual is about life lessons - where there is good and evil, where there are two sides to a coin, where there is up and down, where there is peace and war, where there is love and hate and where there is black and white.
With regards to production, the bubbly musician shared that this time around, she played with different sounds as she worked with Sam-E Lee Jones, DJ Kboz, Focus, Dl Flow, Chris Wanye, and, of course, her usual suspects Mr Andrew on the Beat and Solani Glo. “The instruction was simple. I wanted ‘Dual’. A little bit of up-tempo for the TopCheri gang and a little bit of soothing sounds for the matured audience,” she said.
An extra treat packaged as part of the rollout plan is the music video to ‘Lambela’, which will be released along with the album. “On this video, I will be working with the Plug A Creative (PAC) team, Mepani M, Spectrum Media Group, Kati Cotton Eater and many more. “Physical copies will be available the week of 6 December. To pre-order, call 081 335 9152 or 085 335 9152, or slide in my DMs,” she said.
