Coming on the back of the success of his last offering ‘Cold Outside’ featuring BNXN fka Buju, which topped the Apple Music singles chart in over 20 countries and has garnered over 100 million plays online along the way, award-winning Nigerian singer, songwriter, and musician TIMAYA returns with his brand new single titled ‘GET MY MONEY RIGHT’, as featured in Notion Magazine. Out now via EMPIRE and produced by Spotless (Wizkid, Wyclef Jean, Tekno), ‘Get My Money Right’ comes right on time to whet the appetite for fans and critics that have been clamouring for the follow-up to his acclaimed 2020 album Gratitude.
As the song title suggests, ‘Get My Money Right’ uncovers where Timaya currently is in his career, which is sharply focused on his music and getting his money right, while avoiding any distractions or negative energy. Inspired by the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye West, Timaya recently revealed his goal of becoming the first billionaire in African entertainment, and he wants his journey to inspire the youths of Africa to believe that they can also create global brands, become billionaires too, and more importantly, that they can make money legitimately, despite society’s misconceptions of them.
Heralded as one of the leading stars of afrobeats music, Timaya burst onto the forefront of the African music landscape with his unique fusion of afropop, dancehall, hip-hop and soca music, which earned him the title of ‘King of Afro-Soca’. With over a decade in the game, multiple accolades including a Grammy Award nomination in 2017, and eight acclaimed projects under his belt, which birthed hit songs such as ‘Bum Bum’ with Sean Paul, ‘Pull Up’ featuring Burna Boy, and ‘Balance’, Timaya is already a legend in Africa, and he now sets his sights on world domination.
‘Get My Money Right’ is the second single from Timaya’s upcoming album ‘Chuloverse’, which arrives later this year via EMPIRE.
