Nigerian music sensation Asake has made a resounding statement with the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album titled Work of Art. Building upon his remarkable success in 2022, which saw the artist’s meteoric rise propelled by the enchanting EP, Ololade Asake and the critically acclaimed debut album Mr Money With The Vibe, Asake continues to ascend in both momentum and trajectory.

In less than two years since his entrée into the musical landscape, Asake has astonishingly delivered not one, but two meticulously crafted studio albums, thereby following in the hallowed footsteps of his illustrious label boss, Olamide, who boasts a prodigious array of albums within his highly decorated catalogue. Work of Art is a sprawling compendium of auditory splendour, encompassing a total of fourteen tracks that exhibits the breadth and depth of Asake’s sonic ingenuity. This sonic tapestry artfully interweaves his previously released tracks, such as Yoga, 2:30, and the chart-topping Amapiano.

Within this musical odyssey, Asake traverses the vast expanse of artistic expression, exhibiting his remarkable prowess as he shines predominantly in a solo capacity, with the exception of the esteemed presence of Olamide on the previously released track, Amapiano. It is through this primarily individualistic approach that Asake unveils his remarkable ability to captivate listeners, expertly crafting compositions that evoke a myriad of exhilaration and elicit a profound connection with his audience.

The Work of Art album owes much of its sonic brilliance to the impeccable production work of Magicsticks, Blaise Beatz, P. Prime, and Anoop D’Souza. Together, these gifted producers have contributed their expertise to shape the album’s rich soundscapes, adding depth and dimension to Asake’s already exceptional compositions.
