Out now via EMPIRE, ‘IZ GOING’ as featured in Stupid Dope is the infectious new single from award-winning Nigerian afropop rising star BAD BOY TIMZ, as he puts the finishing touches to his highly anticipated debut album Young & In Charge, which is set for release in the autumn with EMPIRE. Written and composed by Timz, and produced by multi-platinum selling creator Tempoe, whose production credits include working with the likes of CKay, Omah Lay, Rema, and Joeboy, ‘Iz Going’ is a glorious afropop banger that reveals Bad Boy Timz as a future star to watch in the global afrobeats landscape.
The accompanying visuals for ‘Iz Going’, which was shot on location in Lagos, Nigeria, and directed by Viktor Awuse for Ladder, Lex & Booker (Tems, Rema, Fireboy DML), does excellently to bring the joyful afropop track further to life, as it tells the classic boy-meets-girl story of Timz doing all he can to catch the attention of his leading lady. Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Iz Going’, Bad Boy Timz says, “The title plays on a popular slang on the streets of Lagos, with a love story twist, and the video narrates a story of meeting someone you like, and doing all you can to get their attention”.
Perhaps most notable for massive hits like ‘Move’, ‘MJ’ and ‘Loading’ with afrobeats legend Olamide, Bad Boy Timz burst onto the scene only three years ago, with the breakthrough hit ‘Check And Balance’, which he then followed up with the TIMZ EP, his self-titled debut EP that accumulated over 10 million streams in that year. The last two years have seen the fast-rising star grow from strength to strength, including winning the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award at the Headies Award, and collaborations with the likes of Mayorkun and Blaqbonez, among other achievements.
‘Iz Going’ is the new single from Bad Boy Timz, as he gears towards the release of his upcoming debut album ‘Young & In Charge’ in the autumn.
