After dropping his sizzling first single of the year during July’s UK heatwave, London-based vocalist John Alone is back up-and-running following an extended hiatus, adding a brand new single ‘Omolola (Anita)’ to his 2022 account.

Where last month’s track ‘PACKSONME’ showcased the Nigerian-born talent’s signature blend of rapped R&B vocals atop an ethereal, synth-heavy production, the new offering demonstrates his versatility with an effortless amapiano sound.

Looking back through his discography so far, John’s music has always been part of a wider personal pursuit of spirituality, independence, and self-preservation, which lends to the creation of his latest output.

Fusing rhythmic beats with John’s trademark vocal presence, ‘Omolola (Anita)’ is already positioning itself to be an uplifting, dance-floor weapon during the warmer months, taking listeners on a journey through the ups and downs of love with his smooth lyrical style.

“Omolola is a song about patient love,” John says about the single. “Finally meeting the one you feel you’ve been waiting for after a string of less than ideal experiences.”

The amapiano influence builds upon the sound of John’s popular ‘African English’ project, making the single the perfect summer track with its addictive, soul-bearing sound and ear-worm chorus.
