New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Nigerian born hip hop artist known as Weather Man has released his newest single "One of a Kind." The song is a romantic ballad that showcases Weather Man's very personalized style of lyricism, singing, and rap delivery. It features a dance club back beat, synth melody lines that sound crisp and cool on the ear, and serves as an excellent introduction to this up and coming artist currently based in Lille, France. The track is as well suited to nightclubs and dance parties as it is for drives around town or casual listening. It is vivacious, colorful, exotic, clever, and - most of all - an awful lot of fun.
Weather Man names as his main influences acts such as Beenie Man, Elephant Man, and Sean Paul, all of which share attributes that shine through his own particular blend of what he has termed "Afro reggae hip hop." Concerning his unique, inimitable style, music fans will hear a pattern and groove that recalls Shaggy, and also Matisyahu, two artists who sing and rap with heavy international texturing. His phrasing is entirely original, and his technique blends verse and chorus in such a way as to make the entire song somehow circular, so that the entire, heavy-hitting experience is contained in each of its component parts. A full-length Weather Man album will no doubt feature this same excellent characteristic.
"One of a Kind" is not Weather Man's first venture into the recording studio. His first track was recorded in 2000, and since then he has collaborated with several famous artists, achieving his original breakthrough with his track "Na God," on which he collaborated with fellow Port Harcourt, Nigeria artist, Afy Douglas in 2007. He released "More Fire" in 2009, and shortly thereafter recorded with Soul E on "It's Up to You." He has performed with Timaya, Sean Tero, Ashlo, Zeezee, Spider-man, and is now perfecting his stage show for the global audience.
Weather Man's "One of a Kind" is available online worldwide.
