Quick thoughts: Kid AlpHa began releasing music in 2020, but his first track of the New Year, Turn Me On, may just be his best yet. The British-Nigerian singer-songwriter incorporates a wide range of influences - including Afrobeat, R&B, and pop music - into his latest release, a catchy, well-produced song.
Kid AlpHa shows his lyrical capacity throughout this track. “When she turn around I surrender,” he croons in the track’s second verse, a line that is making rounds as a TikTok trend. With such a remarkable release already behind him in 2021, Kid AlpHa is an artist to watch as we head toward the spring and summer. Stream on Spotify:
