Dropping off his first single of 2019, TOBi makes his DopeHouse debut with “City Blues.”

Nigerian-born and Canada-reared, TOBi offers his take on legendary soul singer Marvin Gaye‘s “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler).” “[City Blues is] written from one perspective within the African diaspora, pertaining to being caught between two worlds and reclaiming my ethnic identity,” TOBi said to OkayAfrica. “Embracing my name has been a crucial part of my personal growth.”

Slated to arrive on TOBi’s debut album, which arrives later in 2019, watch the video below.
