Adekunle Gold, the Afrobeats Pop star, also known as AG Baby has explained the reason behind his anticipated album ‘Tequila Ever After’.
In an interview with Apple Music Africa Now Radio, AG Baby tells the host Nandi Madiba about the inspiration behind his new album.
According to Adekunle Gold, he wasn’t in the best of moods after his last album ‘Catch Me If You Can’ was postponed and to help lift his mood, he was handed a bottle of Tequila.
That was his first time taking that brand of alcohol and according to AG, the alcohol put him in a whole new mood.
“I discovered tequila for the first time last year yeah, I know. We had moved my ‘Catch Me If You Can’ release that day, and I was so upset about it. I wanted the album to come out at a certain time, so I was just upset and obviously, they knew I needed an antidote or something. They brought me a bottle of Patron and I had just one shot… I’m telling you, tequila makes everything better.
“My mood lifted so much and I’m like ‘sheesh!’. It felt so good.
“I pay attention to things a lot and I’m like wait, this experience should not just happen like this without me talking about it. I wondered what if people listen to my music and this is how they feel? I made a song that day and it was a beautiful song and I’m like you know what, I’m going to carry on with this energy. I’m going to let people feel this way after one shot.”
‘Tequila Ever After’ is AG’s fifth album which will fully usher in his Tio Tequila artistic era.
According to AG, the album is the fifth level of his adventure, and he’s at his most happy, cheerful, and confident.
“I’m on level five of my adventure game and it’s all fun. It’s happy, it’s a party, it’s more confident, all better off. When you take tequila, it’s all better off you don’t give any damn, you just say whatever you want to say, and that’s what ‘Tequila Ever After’ means.
“It’s a metaphor for where I am in my life right now. I’m in a very happy state – like very, very happy and I want it to shine through the music.”
