British Afrobeat star Mista Silva is set to release his debut album later this year, and today drops off “Lifestyle“, the first offering from the long-awaited project. Equally adept at rhyming in both English and mother tongue Twi, Silva has built up a worldwide reputation for exporting an Afrobeat flavour with an individual UK twist.
Produced by frequent collaborator King Zion, their chemistry is evident on “Lifestyle“, a laid-back chiller sprinkled with elements of tropical pop; Mista Silva works his trademarked vocal and rhythmic delivery over pounding drums and a sharp, dancefloor-ready bassline to great effect. Speaking on the track and its unmistakable flavour,
Silva told Complex: “‘Lifestyle‘ is what an individual makes of it: to live care-free of what the world may think, to believe in one’s style of life.”
