Seyi Shay, whose real name is Oluwaseyi Joshua, has revealed why her sophomore album, ‘Big Girl,’ took her five years to complete.
In 2015, the singer released her debut album, “Seyi or Shay.”
During a live interview on Instagram, Seyi explained the postponement of her new album by citing unanticipated circumstances
She said: “To be honest, a lot of different reasons but this album would have been released three years after my last album. I wake about to start an international record deal but COVID-19 started.
“Also, I did have an album ready in 2019 but apparently, it just wasn’t time, we didn’t have support. It was supposed to be out in 2021 but again the sound just wasn’t right”.
The songstress added “When I started working with my partners Jonz world, we discovered that maybe experimenting in more authentic sound real to me which is R&B and Soul.
“All the sounds I had were great but they were like, it just sounds like I was trying to fix it with my other contemporaries, why not you go back to the drawing board and make music that you grow up on which obviously is that RnB vibe.”
