The Music Industry Needs A Marlian Music Joint Album Right Now — Do You Agree?
When Olamide paused his album streak to create the “YBNL Mafia Mixtape” in 2018, that was a revolution in the industry.
Not that it was the first time a record label project like that has come to life in the industry. Far from it, in fact.
We’ve had projects like “Curriculum Vitae” by Mo’hits All-Stars, and “Empire State of Mind” by the EME boys in the mid to late 2000s. They were really successful projects because there was at least one star in those teams.
But for many years after those said albums, the industry had kind of shunned teamwork like that. Until Olamide did what he did in 2018.
What Baddo had in mind didn’t work actually, as the YBNL 2.0 project failed. But it was that era that gave us Fireboy, and today “Peru” is charting in the UK and everywhere.
It’s safe to say, that YBNL Mafia Mixtape that focused on the guy wasn’t a waste. It introduced us to his talent with tracks like “Jealous” (his first hit) and “I’ll Be Fine.” Look what he is today.
Naira Marley Can Do Just That
I daresay there is enough quality in the Marlian Music team to make a solid project like that.
A solid album that will change the trajectory of the careers of such artists as Lyta, Emo Grae, Zino, and even Naira Marley himself.
The thing is until now Naira Marley hasn’t created one album. Granted, he made that one good EP, but that was in 2019. Now his career is ailing and the only thing that can save him, I think, is if he works with his boys.
From Mohbad to Zino to the lesser-known ones like C Blvck and Fabian, there’s no shortage of people whom he could involve in a project like this.
And if there’s one thing they all got, it’s talent. So why waste that, when most of these guys are in their prime?
Naira Marley has a unique opportunity to give these boys a kind of shine they won’t get anywhere else by putting together a joint project.
I hope he realizes it and does something about it before it’s too late.
