Stress Free by D’banj Chapter 1 Full Album Download MP3 Audio
“Allow me to reintroduce myself,” so says D’Banj on the intro to “Banga”, the first track off his new album, “Stress Free”.
The statement is of course ironic, but “Stress Free” brings a fresh new body of work from D’Banj, reflecting the quintessence of a successful career.
Stress Free by D’banj is a track where the Nigerian music legend joined the form Afrobeat legend, and son of Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti.
“I went back to basics – which is why I got The Egypt 80 Band (Fela Kuti’s band, led by his son Seun Kuti) on all seven tracks – and then eased into a realm of zero anxiety after a turbulent 36 months of stress that the world has been through!” says D’Banj.
On “Stress Free”, slips into a traditional Afrobeat crooner mode, visible in the multi-layered fusion of horns, saxophones, and futuristic Afrobeat synths across tracks.
The Egypt 80 brings the horns on the Afrobeat fusion, “Zombie”, and the Afrobeats-meringue mix of “Lagos” as well as the free-wheeling “Stress Free” and “Banga”.
“Ikebe” is a gentle, uplifting prayer while “Big Vibe” incorporates the Amapiano sound into a pan-Continental dance special.
