Grammy Award-winning songwriter, singer, producer, and spoken wordsmith, evrYwhr (pronounced everywhere), is passionate about travelling and exploring culture through music. This time, his travels took him to Nigeria, where he filmed the video for his new single, “Roll On Me,” featuring Afrobeats superstar, Patoranking. Produced by Trakmatik, Swanky, Hvstle, the smooth, almost ethereal love song boasts a sexy sound rooted in Afrobeats and Caribbean music with sonics that travels across the borders. evrYwhr calls the resulting sound, Psychedelic Afro-R&B, an eclectic and global fusion of R&B, Afropop, afrobeats, reggae, and soul!
evrYwhr wrote and recorded his verses on “Roll On Me” in Atlanta, GA, at The Saint & Citizen Studio, while Patoranking recorded his in Lagos, Nigeria. evrYwhr’s catchy hook opens the track complimented by Patoranking’s infectious verse. A sexy saxophone runs throughout the song setting the tone for intimacy. Nigerian cinematographer Director K of PriorGold Pictures (whose credits include Wizkid’s ‘Essence‘), adds another layer of allure to the vibrantly colored music video.
Speaking on the collaboration, evrYwhr, who has traced his ancestry back to Nigeria shares,“It was important that I recorded “Roll On Me” with Patoranking in Nigeria to immerse myself in the afrobeat rhythms and culture. While there, I fell in love with the music, food, and fashion,”
‘Roll On Me’ is a quick glance into evrYwhr’s debut album scheduled to be released in the summer of 2023 under label Saint & Citizen Music.
