In their controversial new tune, Intoxycated, Oxlade and Dave tackle the hype around love. Naija meets the UK.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Oxlade and British-Nigerian rapper Dave have joined forces to release a brand new tune, dubbed Intoxycated, that expresses their perspectives on love and their personal relationships in a musical collaboration that crosses boundaries. Given his heartbreaking experiences with infidelity, Oxlade frankly declares, “I feel like love is overrated, tell me, got me so wasted,” expressing his disenchantment with love.

Oxlade and Dave address the dangers and pitfalls of love via their affecting lyrics and catchy delivery. They explore the allure of romantic relationships, illuminating the complicated emotions and potential weaknesses that might appear when two individuals become entangled in the web of love.

Deeyasso, Spax, and The Kazes’ collective brilliance is evident in the track’s production, which they expertly built so that Oxlade and Dave could ride the fascinating instrumental with ease. The pair transports listeners on a mesmerising trip through the highs and lows of love’s addictive charm thanks to their smooth glides and obvious connection.

Following the release of the song OVAMI featuring African king Flavour, Intoxycated is Oxlade’s second official single of 2023. As he posts “I told you no more love songs” on his Instagram profile, Oxlade’s most recent work demonstrates his continuous artistic development. With his soulful singing and reflective words, he demonstrates his adaptability and capacity to fascinate people.

Together with the UK, Naija’s and the UK’s music scenes are brought together in a perfect fusion of talent by Oxlade and Dave’s partnership.
