Did 6lack Just Make Omah Lay’s ‘Damn’ Better?

November 6, 2020

Unlike most of us, talented newcomer Omah Lay is having a truly remarkable 2020. He dropped his stellar EP, Get Layd earlier this year and hasn’t looked back since.

The 5-song, 14-minute EP is currently the fifth most-streamed Nigerian album on Spotify worldwide this year, up there with massive stars like Wizkid, Tiwa Savage and 2Baba.

If you haven’t listened to it yet, you’re wrong.

There’s no doubt that the international community also digs Omah Lay’s music. Last month, Borussia Dortmund superstar, Jadon Sancho was live with his friends when he played “Bad Influence”, arguably the most popular song on the album, to get their reactions.

Yesterday, Omah Lay tweeted that he would be dropping a remix of “Damn”, featuring popular American rapper, singer, and songwriter, 6lack (It’s pronounced ‘Black’. I don’t know why he’s stressing us).

The song dropped at exactly midnight — take notes, Wizkid — and honestly, it’s a jam. In his regular singing style, 6lack dropped a verse right in the middle of the song and it seems the song we thought couldn’t get any better, just did.

6lack is not the only big name artist that Omah Lay has collaborated with this year. Earlier this year, DJ Tunez released “PAMI” with him, Wizkid and Adekunle Gold, and more recently, Olamide enlisted him for his Carpe Diem album.

Omah Lay is definitely in the group of young Nigerian musicians taking our music across the globe, and we can’t just help but stan.
