To the luck of all beliebers, Justin Bieber is back. But he doesn’t come alone but, as we are used to lately, he comes very well accompanied. The Canadian released, last March 4, a new song called Attention with the 24-year-old Nigerian musician, Omah Lay. Bieber, who turned 28 years old on March 1st, was the one who announced through his social media this wonderful news with a photo of the cover of the song.
This song is already a hit on all digital platforms and both fans and those who are not followers of either artist are loving it. Also, this is the first song released by Bieber since 2022 began.
It is a song in which both artists have fused their personal styles to perfection. The rhythm of the track can be classified as a laid-back afrobeat with sensual touches perfect for Justin’s voice. While through the lyrics, the artists talk about the feeling of losing your mind over a person and how they drown their sorrows in different substances but also in music.
Omah Lay and Justin Bieber had already collaborated on a remix of Peaches and you can sense from the results of their songs that they are close friends and share a close relationship. What’s more, Bieber on numerous occasions has said that he considers Omah as a brother.
Attention is a song that has been produced by Harv and Avedon, while the music video has been directed by Colin Tilley. In this video, the performers enjoy a night of partying in a house, where the good atmosphere makes it an unforgettable night. This song will be part of the Nigerian artist’s first album titled Boy Alone.
We know all about Justin, but who is Omah Lay? Stanley Omah Didia, better known as Omah Lay, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer. He gained widespread recognition in early 2020 after his self-produced single Bad Influence went viral on social media. He won the Next Rated award at the 2020 Headies Awards. He is also part of the new wave of Nigerian artists who are helping to put Afrobeat on the map of Western popular culture, alongside peers such as Mr. Eazi, WizKid, Tems and CKay.
