Fazealone aka Faze is a super-talented R&B/ Dancehall artiste. He was a part of defunct pioneer R&B group that was formed in the late ’90s by 2face, Blackface and himself. 2face went solo in 2004 with the release of his debut album Face 2 Face. Faze also released his own very successful solo album, Face Alone, the same year. The singer is known for hit songs like ‘Tattoo Girl’ and ‘Letter To My Brother’. Before he went on a hiatus, he released two other successful albums: Independent and Originality. He however attempted a comeback with ‘Tonite’ ft Patoranking and ‘Common Sense’ in 2014 and 2015 respectively. They didn’t go far.
Faze appears to be now set to reclaim his position in the Nigerian music industry. This year, he teamed up with Nigerian R&B star, Iyanya. The result is a nice Dancehall/ Reggae love song released in February. Iyanya as expected gave a nice verse and Faze took us back to 2006 with his powerful and hypnotic vocals. The song was produced by super-talented DJ Coublon who has brought a number of artistes to fame with his beats. The visual for the single released yesterday was directed by Aje Filmworks. This time, Ani James did not tell a story. Rather, he presented a party-like scene with typical Jamaican dance moves which is characteristic of good Dancehall videos.
His choice of Iyanya was a very smart move. The nice jam has the potential to shoot Faze back into relevance.
