Adekunle Gold has been on an incredible musical run this 2023. Just six months into the year, he has three hot tracks (Party No Dey Stop, Omo Eko and Do You Mind) that came in a 3-song pack called Tio Tequila — his latest alter ego.

From Adekunle Gold to AG Baby, we’ve witnessed different phases of his musicianship. Right now, it’s the tequila phase and he wants everyone to be part of it. We know the party isn’t stopping, and much more about his coming album. Drink walk with me.

What’s T.E.A?

Before you start wondering if AG has started selling beverages or herbal tea, it’s an acronym for: Tequila Ever After — the title of his upcoming album. He decided the title for his album after he drank some tequila for the first time and recorded a hit in the studio thereafter.

He’s set for summer

Like he has been saying in his tweets and from the sounds of the snippets, Tio Tequila is bringing all the drinks and jams to the yard this summer. Summer body or not, I’m ready to throw down some jiggy moves to the new album.

14 tracks

His first and second albums have 16 tracks. On his third album, Catch Me If You Can, he switched to 14 tracks. His forthcoming fifth album, Tequila Ever After also has 14 songs on it. A consistent king. More songs to rock concerts, right?

Release details

There’s no release date for Tequila Ever After yet, despite reminding us everyday on socials, his newsletter and through snippets. This is just like a fowl looking at bottled corn, the closest it’ll get to tasting it is staring at it. Adekunle Gold has been busy appearing at fashion shows. Can this guy put the album out already?

There’s no tracklist either

Since he’s sure it’s 14 tracks, what’s the delay? Are album cover artists  scarce? Or he’s stalling the release because he truly wants to handle his album art himself?

The AG x Olamide collabo is due sha

He was signed for two years to Olamide’s YBNL record label, I wonder how AG and Baddo didn’t make a song together. I hope AG will surprise us on the new album.

A Timbaland production on “TEA”?

Sometime in April, 2023, popular American music producer, Timbaland, was jamming to Adekunle Gold’s Something Different and saying they have to work together.

Fast-forward to June, 2023, Tio Tequila is previewing Tequila Ever After for Timbaland. We can feel just how crazy the album is from Timbaland’s reactions to the music.

The TEA party

There’s no better name for the promotional tour of his new album than TEA Party. He’s touring the UK and North America later in the year. While we wait for the album and when it finally drops, drink tequila ever after or responsibly. You can still jam AG’s album without fucking up your livers. Cheers.
