Johannesburg, South Africa – Friday. 9 July 2021 – Hennessy hitmaker Tshego returns with new music within the form of an EP, titled 3 Piece.   

Following a social media tour, marking the return of the multi- talented musician and producer, Tshego has released the first single off his upcoming EP, “3 Piece” set to release on the 16th of July 2021.

In 2019 Tshego released his debut album which symbolized his formal introduction of the alter ego and musical persona, Pink Panther. Tshego aims to continue exploring the musical persona with his upcoming project set to feature some of the hottest and leading musicians out now including the likes of Flame and Blackie.

Kick starting the countdown to the EP release is, “ONLY IF YOU LIKE THAT” which is Tshego’s ode to sexual consent. On the track, Tshego expresses his sexual desires, his prowess, and makes sure to clarify that he’s only interested in engaging in these intimate acts if the other party is also enthusiastically eager.

Tshego delivers his signature melodic raps, with a heavily sensual inclination, over a sparse trap R&B instrumental. Tshego delivers his vocals with an earnestness and sincerity synonymous with the rhythm & blues genre, while the grimy kick-drum-led beat brings the gritty trap sound to life.

ONLY IF YOU LIKE THAT is accompanied by a visual performance piece, which went live at 8:00am CAT on his Vevo Channel:
