NEW // Mr Julz Taps Egar Boi For Afrobeats Single ‘You Are Mine’
Intertwining elements of both Afrobeat’s and Afropop to form this seamless listen, ‘You Are Mine’ encapsulates a sense of freedom that’s perfect for the summer months. Underpinned with a percussive production courtesy of Skimzea Beats and glossed with silk-like melodies, Mr Julz opens the track with an infectious chorus that ultimately sets the tone. Affirming the love in a relationship, the title is as evident as it seems. Calling on Egar Boi for assistance who’s previously written and produced for many heavyweights including Yemi Alade, Ice Prince, Oxlade, and more, Egar Boi has named ‘You Are Mine’ as his Alte cruise tantalizer. Paired with a seductive visualiser, we follow both Mr Julz on stage and a attractive young woman in coloured hue lighting; correlating flawlessly with the feel of the track.

Pearla’s music radiates with indiscriminate awe. Whether it’s the befuddling depths of nature or the profoundly strange spark of a dreaming mind—she takes it all as equal magic. Her debut album is populated by eccentric creatures and quixotic scenes, her takes on mortality, intimacy, and personal freeness glowing with an air of mystique. Oh Glistening Onion… is a world unto itself.
“The song embodies a gentle pastoral mood, taking on a pensive and reflective air that dives from the burdens of duress and distress for a landing of solace and comfort.” – Week In Pop
