VÖ 17.11.2023: Single “Lonely At The Top (Remix)“
Nigerian singer / songwriter Asake and award winning singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, H.E.R., share a new song / video for “Lonely At The Top” (Remix). The track is a reimagined version that showcases the lyrical abilities and vocal prowess of both stars as they sing a ballad of what it takes to get to the top and how to stay focused throughout that journey. “Lonely At The Top” (Remix) arrives alongside a stripped down, ensemble-like visual directed by Juan Felipe of Blank Square Productions.
This new track comes on the heels of the announcement that Asake earns his first ever Grammy nomination with “Amapiano” (with YBNL founder and legacy Afrobeat artist Olamide) for the Best African Music Performance category. The original “Lonely At The Top” is featured on Asake’s latest album, Work of Art, is the first ever song to reach 100 million streams on Audiomack, and is the longest #1 charting song in Nigeria. He performed both tracks for Vevo Ctrl Live Session. All of the Work Of Art singles landed immediately on the Billboard US Afrobeats Songs Chart with the album debuting at #4 on Billboard World Albums Chart, #66 on Billboard 200, and propelling the breakout superstar to reach a career milestone of 2 billion streams and counting.
The Grammy nomination is proof of a momentous year for Asake having headlined the Barclays Center, headlined the O2 Arena, and been nominated for MTV VMA and MTV EMA Awards. All year he’s been delivering exhilarating live shows to stages across the world including at Rosendal Garden Party in Sweden, Broccoli City Festival, Afronation Miami and more. Over the course of five years – with 25 GRAMMY nominations and 5 wins to date, an Academy Award and an Emmy – H.E.R. has had an incredible journey, punctuated with inspiring projects and accolades that have quickly ascended her to superstar status. Regarded as one of music’s most admired and respected musicians at only 26-years-old, H.E.R. also added acting to her resume when she starred as Belle in ABC’s Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration in 2022 and joins the all-star cast of The Color Purple musical film adaptation as “Squeak” on December 25, 2023.
