Fléxy aka Nelsy Akomor from Nigeria is taking over the pop/ hip-hop/ reggae scene by a graceful swoop. Clearly, he’s an artist that eases his way through mixing genres and creating a universe of his own in each song he releases. His latest release is a soulful hip-hop/ reggae single- We’re Beautiful.
This upbeat number is a pop ode to love and an appreciation for one’s partner. The song has multiple genre’s influences within it from reggae to hip-hop to even a little bit of rock. This is owed to the synthesised percussion beats which also adds a mellow rock element to it. The song is reminiscent of the early 2000s pop songs such as umbrella by Rihanna and Jay Z. The track embodies so much love, more so- new love at that. We’re Beautiful is like a courtship dance between two lovers that oozes passion and connection. The song has a water-like quality- it trickles and tickles your senses and flows from one verse to another.
Step Up is a film that caused such waves in the film world and in the dance world as well. Never before had movement been captured with so much precision and presented so aesthetically. What drew the audience in was the fact that it was a culmination of three art forms- music, dance and music. A variety of music was used in this film, any scene that had to portray chemistry through a dance performance, this number would fit in like a tailor-made ballerina’s shoe.
Fléxy has over 48,000 listeners across the world and he’s only gaining more. This is due to many reasons but an affirmed reason because he isn’t gated by genres. He lets the music flow and invites listeners in.
