Across a career that has now stretched into it’s eleventh active year, Skales has risen from talented wonderkid to a veritable Afro-Pop icon with a catalogue swelling with a variety of songs that are steeped in the international rise of the genre, but he is not a one-trick pony; deep into Nigeria‘s Covid-19-enforced lockdown, he channeled the spirit of the times on his “Healing ProcessEP, a meditative body of work that found him in a contemplative mood, recounting the price and process that took him to the peak of his profession. 2021 has seen a return to some of the vivid hyper-pop that catapulted him to the top of the game, with “Kayefi,” finding him musing over the concept of finding romantic companionship while the Davido-assisted “This Your Body,” saw the duo go to work over a revamped Amapiano-influenced bassline that sees him enunciate sexual innuendos dexterously with witty verses and a honeyed flow.

Skales‘ latest, “I Dey Miss You,” follows the sonic theme of the hypnotic grooves of the Healing Process era but diverges thematically as it is rooted in the familiar desire for romantic coupling; atop a spectral beat, he drops a pair of emotive verses that sees him lean into neo-R&B influences while his guest, Imanse, fits perfectly within this new, sultry world that Skales is exploring, complimenting his delivery with a layered flow – as we near the final quarter of the year, Skales give us a reminder of the newer plains he keeps expanding into as he settles into a better status – listen up and share your thoughts. | ENJOY!!!
