East London’s multifaceted artist, author, broadcaster, and sports pundit Guvna B has just released a new single titled “Amplify” featuring Ghanaian rising star DarkoVibes. This track is a teaser from his highly anticipated forthcoming album “The Village Is On Fire,” scheduled to release on May 26th.
Guvna B’s new single is a blend of his home and heritage’s sounds, infused with afrobeats. He teams up with singer-songwriter DarkoVibes to create a catchy chorus while producers TSB, AOD, and Venna beautifully harmonize West African rhythms and percussion with powerful UK rap. “Amplify” perfectly represents the fusion of cultures and genres that define Guvna B’s music. It’s a lively and upbeat track, setting the tone for the coming warmer months.
However, amidst the infectious rhythm and beats, Guvna B’s lyricism shines bright, adding a layer of depth and meaning to the track. He explains that “Amplify” is about the environment and the effect it has on individuals. He elaborates, “Too much focus is placed on the crabs though, and not enough on the bucket…our environment. If the environment we grow up in enables us to thrive, we tend to make better decisions.” The artist grew up on an estate where limited opportunities led to jealousy and hate. This song is a commentary on the need to focus on the environment’s impact rather than only the individuals.
To match the afro-inspired soundscape, Guvna B and his team shot the video for “Amplify” in Ghana. With this new release, Guvna B continues to demonstrate his artistic prowess and versatility. He’s an artist to watch out for, and “The Village Is On Fire” is shaping up to be one of the most exciting album releases of the year.
