Two up-and-coming DMV natives, Abir and Maségo, join for a head-bobbing and hip-shaking new single, “Wave.” With mass amounts of help on the production side from EFF3X, the two trade verses of intimacy before joining to harmonize on the song’s hook as they search for a sound to help them reach the next level of recognition. As artists coming up in the largely accessible world for music, it can be difficult to find a niche or sound to expand on and be successful with. If anything, for one song at least, I think Abir and Masego have found their wave.
Abir spoke to The FADER, who premiered the song:
“This record is a celebration of discovering my own personal sound and riding that wave. There’s so much pressure as a new artist to conform and compete with what’s already popping—in my mind, that’s someone else’s wave and it might just crash into the rocks.”
