SINGLE: ‘T.I.N.A’ (FEATURING ANGEL)
RELEASED BY 3BEAT ON OCTOBER 19TH 2014
Fuse ODG’s highly anticipated debut album will be released via 3Beat on November 2nd 2014. Fuse ODG (aka Richard Abiona) is undoubtedly the most successful artist to date to emerge out of the Afrobeat scene and his forthcoming album looks set to add another incredible chapter to the Ghanaian South Londoner’s all-conquering career. The past 12 months has seen Fuse ODG fast become a mainstream star, selling over a million records with four chart hits in as many singles to his name. He has been a near permanent fixture on the radio 1 playlist and achieved silver status on singles ‘Antenna’, ‘Million Pound Girl’ and ‘Dangerous Love’, which spent 10 consecutive weeks in the UK top 20. All in addition to collaborating with Sean Paul and Wyclef and a MOBO award win for Best African Act in 2013 along with 3 nominations for this year’s awards.
Recorded over the past year and created with the help of the industry’s most in demand Afrobeats production houses such as award-winning Ghanaian producer Killbeatz, the album ‘T.I.N.A’ is an extraordinary body of work. An acronym for ‘This Is New Africa’, the title of the album and its musical content is a celebration of Fuse’s love for his motherland, the Africa of Now. A sonic manifestation of Fuse’s personality, each track is set to sit comfortably on radio airwaves and club dance floors and features the hit singles, alongside club smashes like ‘Ye Play’, soulful jams like ‘Over’ and the electro afro pop masterclass ‘Beautiful Sunray’ (featuring UK hip hop heavyweights Krept & Konan). Whilst ‘This Girl’ adds a final blow of pop genius with its standout infectious chorus creating a confident collection of afro -pop brilliance.
Going from strength to strength, 2014 will also see FUSE ODG tour the UK, with four headline slots throughout October. With a sold out headline show at The Garage in Islington and appearances at a string of festival dates under his belt he will kick off the tour at the renowned Under the Bridge venue in London, then unto Manchester Club Academy, and climaxing with a show at the Birmingham Library.
