Following the recent success of trillion dollar dream, Ibejii is set to captivate audiences again with today’s release of his sultry new single, Chocolate Hour.
Inspired by the overpowering intensity of passion and longing, and by the timeless classics of the Great American Songbook, Chocolate Hour showcases Ibejii’s impeccable songwriting, vocal dexterity, and enduring tendency to marry nostalgia with contemporary sounds.
Stewed in catchy melodies, sultry lyrics, and midnight instrumentation, Chocolate Hour is a beautiful transcendence of musical boundaries, a sound piece that is both classic and innovative, global yet essentially African. This song is destined to make babies of chocolatey encounters.
Chocolate Hour was produced by DopeL, and engineered by Emmanuel Ojo and Jajayi, of Ibejii’s award-winning Intermission. Natialo Studios, Lagos, gets credit for this immersive musical experience.
Commenting on the release, Ibejii explained, “Chocolate Hour is the next step in my embrace of sensual vulnerability. It is my shot at ‘seductively bad’, the key that unlocks access to the secret snack bar. I invite Ibejii Nomads and friends to get comfortable as we navigate sensuality.
Chocolate Hour is available on all major music platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music. For press inquiries, interview requests, or additional information about Ibejii and Chocolate Hour, please contact:
