Songbroker Song of the Day : Unchained XL - But Do They Know (feat. JessB & Nuel Nonso)
Unchained XL is a British born Nigerian New Zealand Hiphop artist and producer with a unique, afrocentric sound.
His 2018 debut EP release entitled ‘Foreign Legacy’ blends traditional afrobeat-inspired textures and rhythms with various styles of hiphop, utilising a combination of live instruments and synths.
With overarching themes of faith, identity, justice, virtue and cultural innovation, he draws both musical and lyrical inspiration from artists such as Fela Kuti, Jidenna, M.anifest and Lecrae.
'But Do They Know' is a powerful upbeat call to embrace who you are in the here and now and follow your dreams unreservedly.
