Our song of the Week.

Since Bayanni broke onto the scene, he has looked to find his feet within the industry. Witnessing his performance at the Mavin All Stars concert in December 2022 indicated that he is quite a promising artist. His self-titled EP was released to announce his arrival, and it was met with some mixed reviews. But even with a lean discography of one project and a handful of songs, one of his records have caught life.
“Ta Ta Ta” on the Bayanni EP gained some traction after its release. But the song’s remix with Jason Derulo has raised the record’s profile, catapulting it into the realm of a potential club favourite. It’s an interesting collaboration in itself, even more so because we get to see Jason Derulo play in the Afrobeats space. This collaboration is certainly one that adds to the growing “Afrobeats to the World” folder.
Prestige provides the backdrop for this tropical banger. A relatively fast-paced record. “Ta Ta Ta” carries the necessary bounce to keep you bumping your head with interest. Bayanni and Jason Derulo share good chemistry on the song; lacing it with raunchy lyrics and sultry delivery. Jason Derulo particularly does quite well, riding the bass-line with some deft execution. The result is a vibey dance song to catch a whine to.
Mavin Records have shown their prowess in recruiting new stars. However, not all of them have gone on to achieve wide success. Bayanni could be on the brink of something unique with this record; something to take the budding artist from the sidelines to the big time. If he keeps putting in the work, there’s no telling what he could do. And seeing the lengths that Mavin Records have pushed the likes of Rema and Ayra Starr to, that would be extra motivation for the talented singer.
