“I mean, for me I just felt like I needed to get to a point where I feel like recording music. Like, recording a project. It’s been since 2018, since I put out, like, a full body. And so, the whole of last year, besides like, the business I was working on. You know, lots stuff with J Balvin, Nikki Minaj, Major Lazer. But I still didn’t feel like I was in the place to make a project. So, I recorded this records and I feel like just, once I was done with them, I just felt like, “Yes.” It felt like I had hit the reset button right after I recorded this. So it’s like, “Okay, now this is, like, the- the calm before the storm.”

“To be honest, I don’t know. I swear to God, like, I don’t know. Like, at first I was thinking ’cause I was recording with Frisco, and you know he, he put out, and I was recording all this dance hall records all these dance hall inspired records. So, I thought it was London to, to Kingston. And then I, I, Michael Brown hooked me up with um, J Balvin and we formed a, a friendship and next thing I’m recording with uh, Sky and I’m recording with Bad Bunny and so I thought it was London to Mi jean. And now I’m back in Accra, and I’m recording in all these different countries and so it’s like, I wouldn’t really know until I start. But one thing I know for sure is this is gonna be very high-life inspired. It’s gonna be banco music. Maybe I just call it Life Is Easy for Banco Music. Boom. Ah, that’s a, that’s a good point. Yeah, maybe that’s just what I call it. I think we have just gotten a name for it now.”
Mr Eazi on working with J Balvin and Bad Bunny
“I think it, it came easily. The challenge there was actually you know, going from concept to actually doing it. ‘Cause, I went to Sonarfest about 2018 and that’s the first time I was properly introduced to music from Latin America. And I was listened to all these records from Argentina, Chile, Columbia. It was like a new thing I just found out. I was like, oh my God what is this? And, because I could understand the rhythm, I just felt like yo, wouldn’t it be so cool if I would be the first person to make like Afro latino Music. And so, as fate would have it, I ended up linking up with J Balvin. And J Balvin was also, he was, he, he as, for the first time we were talking about it like, “Yo Bro. I want, I, I love your music. I love this African music. I wanna also introduce it to my audience.” And I’m like “Hey, I also want to introduce your vibe to my audience.” And he’s like “Oh.”
