Nigerian-German singer Abiodun aka Don Abi best known for his calloborations with his brother Ade and his Bantu Collective has just dropped a brand new single, “Living for the Positive.”
The single which was released on Ajazco records on April 13, 2018 is off his highly anticipated album “Crossing Over” due for release in the Fall of 2018. The singles and forthcoming album mark Abiodun’s comeback to the concert halls and music industry.
Abiodun is probably one of the artists you have already heard of, but probably do not know. He has been active under the moniker “Don Abi” collaborating with artists such as Gentleman, Xavier Naidoo, Patrice, Gregory Isaacs, Keziah Jones, Bantu and Maceo Parker since the mid-1990s. He gained fame in Germany as a member of the Afro-German collective Brothers Keepers which sold over 220,000 copies of their single “Adriano (the final warning)”.
Living for the Positive could also be called Moving out of the Negative. The song describes a positive attitude to life that can be encountered unexpectedly. Musically, Living for the Positive is unmistakably inspired by the legendary Soul Sound of Stax and Motown from the 1960s, most especially the chorus with its heavy hitting background choirs which reminds us of the hopeful message (the gospel of love) – an intriguing mix of up-tempo, rock and soul power.
The Single is only available on all major digital download and streaming platforms.
