Skales Talks On His New Album
Recently Skales held an exclusive interview with Pulse and spoke on a range of issues. Blessings on and on, Skales the ‘Assured Man’, is what we call him.
As reported by Pulse, “Basically, I am working on my album and like 90% of the project was produced by Chopstix, who I have worked with for over ten years”.
“The album wasn’t supposed to be called what it is now, it was initially called, ‘The Heart’ album, but we re-strategised because I wanted it to be an album that touches everywhere, not just Nigeria.
“The album is now going to be called Mr Love, with the release date to be announced soon.
“I chose that name because if you know me, I hardly have bad blood against anyone, I believe there is so much hate around and we have to start by preaching about love”.
Skales lists Vanessa Mdee, Cassper Nyovest, Sarkodie, Tiwa Savage, Phyno, Teni the Entertainer, Neza, Yung L and Endia, as featured guests on the Mr Love album.
On what makes his upcoming albumdifferent from his previous efforts, he admits, ”I have grown a lot, so which means I have experienced a lot, I react better to criticisms from my past album, even though whether people like it or not, I have had at least three to four hit songs from the albums that have made me who I am.’
He chips in on handling the negative comments that have come his way, ”I feel like no matter how much success you have, there will people that will always say things.
I won’t lie, before it used to get to me, but not anymore, now I actually listen to what you have to say because I feel like I am still a work in progress”.
On his relationship with Wizkid, he said ”I am cool with him, like I am so happy for everything he is doing right now, I am honestly looking forward to the day when me and Wiz will do a song together again, cause people will be so shocked at the outcome’.
He also spoke about “Temper“ remix with Burna Boy ”I put the song out of excitement forgetting that we were supposed to clear it, It was actually Burna’s verse that got us in trouble with Fela’s estate because his rights were managed by Sony in France. So when we shot the video, they took it down from YouTube, but along the line, we found out that we were sharing the same lawyers, so were able to reach a resolution and immediately, the video was put back up”.
And also spoke about the J. Coles’s Concert that happened in Lagos. “I saw the whole J Cole concert, the fallout on social media and how some were even mentioning my name, but if like an M.I says I want to fill up Eko Hotel how many people will go? Because I feel like you cannot blame a rapper that switches, he needs to feed his family.
“I am not saying rap is a bad thing, but rap is not our culture and if you want it to survive in this country, give us support”.
