Baby Oh! The Collaboration
“Baby Oh” is one of many collaborations off the anticipated album. ‘That Girl from Uganda’ teams up with prominent Miami rap star ‘Zoey’ (previously known as Zoey Dollaz) who was formerly signed to “Freebandz Imprint” the record label owned by Atlanta rapper Future.
“Baby Oh” is a sweet blend of Afro Pop, Afro House, and the burgeoning South African beats traditionally known today as Amapiano. Ten seconds in, you already know we’re locked into an Amapiano vibe, and if you aren’t sure so about it, the vibrant 808 drums that come in at the first hook make it abundantly clear.
In the opening verse, Ang3lina leaves you visualizing what could be; “…dirty thoughts of your body on my body…” she sings. Zoey then transitions in with a smooth tranquil flow that sits perfectly on the instrumentation together with his sensual backup vocals to make the short verse captivating and 100% worthwhile. The vibrant beats are produced by Los Angeles-based producer (@prodzone) and the vocals are mixed by a Nigerian UK-based sound engineer (@damidott).
This is a song you definitely need to look out for. The upbeat Amapiano base will ensure you are not leaving that dance floor anytime soon!
