With his recently released EP lead single ‘Danger’ garnering over three million plays online in just a few weeks, while also receiving rave reviews and critical acclaim from the likes of Notion Magazine, Earmilk, Noctis Magazine, BBC Radio London, OkayAfrica, No Signal Radio and Reprezent Radio, among others, GRAMMY Award-nominated global music rising star TERRI is excited to unveil his long-awaited and highly anticipated sophomore EP In Transit via ONErpm. He spoke with GQ Magazine for an interview to discuss the EP.
The new EP In Transit comes on the back of a very eventful past 12 months for Terri, which saw the Nigerian artist and songwriter receive his first ever Grammy Award nomination for his contributions on the Wizkid album ‘Made In Lagos’, while also collaborating with Grammy Award winning producer and one-third of Major Lazer, Walshy Fire, as well as working with Ghanaian culture icon Smallgod, among other achievements, despite not releasing a solo single since 2020’s smash hit track ‘Come Around’.
Written and composed by Terri, in collaboration with some of Nigeria’s finest new producers including Krizbeatz (Popcaan, Mr Eazi, Davido) and P.Priime (Wizkid, Fireboy DML, Asa), and a guest appearance from Mugeez, one-half of BET Award nominated Ghanaian duo R2Bees, his In Transit EP is a glorious afropop and R&B fusion triumph, rich in musicality and lyricism, which sees Terri in his element as he takes the listener on a captivating journey of love and romance.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the In Transit EP, Terri says, “I spent the past year exploring different sounds and honing my craft – this project is an account of that artistic journey, as well as my personal journey going through the different emotions of love, relationships, and romance. ‘In Transit’ is a transition from where I was musically, to where I am now, and where I’m headed. It’s me thinking about where I’m coming from, acknowledging my growth, and getting closer to my goals”.
Terri burst onto the afrobeats scene when he was only a teenager, becoming the only artist to be signed by Wizkid to his Starboy Records imprint. He also collaborated with Wizkid on the certified gold-selling hit single ‘Soco’, and later released his critically acclaimed debut EP Afro Series in 2020, garnering over 50 million streams, and international support from BBC Radio 1, KISS FM, BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, Apple Music 1 and Okayafrica, among others, along the way. The fast-rising afrobeats is ready to usher in a new era with his brand new EP, In Transit.
