    Masego Releases New Self-Titled Sophomore Album

    Masego Releases New Self-Titled Sophomore Album

    Masego released his self-titled album on EQT Recordings/Capitol Records.

    While Masego is only his second album, the jazz/hip-hop/R’n’B multi-instrumentalist prodigy has amassed nearly two billion combined global streams in his career to date. Lady Lady, his full-length debut, contained the breakout hit “Tadow,” certified Platinum in the U.S., Diamond in Brazil, and Gold in Mexico. The deluxe EP Studying Abroad: Extended Stay, which included the RIAA Gold-certified hit Mystery Lady Ft. Don Toliver, earned Masego his first GRAMMY® nomination.

    He’s sold out shows and played festivals on every continent but Antarctica – and Masego’s upcoming North American tour is almost completely sold out in advance of its March 12 launch. For details on the You Never Visit Me Tour, visit here.

    “I’m very thankful of the journey. This went from a hobby to a job,” says Masego. “I was getting all the things that they say that you’re supposed to be fulfilled by and I wasn’t fulfilled by it. I had to do a re-evaluation of a lot of things. I said, ‘I can’t make this what I imagined it to be. So I cannot remain here. I need to move.’”

    Masego is that movement. It’s a grand, eloquent, and somewhat mischievous one, from an artist who thrives on mixing contemplation with extroversion, smoldering romance with knowing humor, studied musical discipline with exhilarating flights of intuition. For this deeply collaborative work, Masego sought out what he calls the “outliers, the savants” – people like Kelvin Wootan, Louie Lastic, Richie Souf, Monte Booker, WaveIQ, and Rocaine. See below for the track listing.

    The album’s first three singles – “Two Sides (I’m So Gemini),” “You Never Visit Me” and “Say You Want Me” – have already racked up more than 15 million combined streams worldwide.  View the official video for “Two Sides (I’m So Gemini)” HERE.
