Celebrate Maségo’s 25th Birthday By Jamming His New Song “Lady Lady”
Add some birthday blessings to Maségo’s life by playing his new song, “Lady Lady,” produced by Sounwave, on repeat for the musician’s 25th revolution around the sun.
I told y’all, people, I told y’all people: Maségo is a wave and you should be riding and enjoy the sounds if you haven’t been doing so already. The self-taught musician and architect behind the #TrapHouseJazz movement have been bubbling the past few years, earning praise from peers such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, Ta-Ku, and GoldLink. Now, today, on what is Maségo’s 25th revolution around the sun, the man who can do it all drops a new song, “Lady Lady,” to build anticipation for his upcoming, as-yet-to-be revealed debut album.
Produced by TDE’s Grammy Award-winning producer Sounwave, this duo concocts a funky, summer-esque vibe that will get you snapping your fingers, dipping your hips, and breaking out your smoothest “Sego Step” at a rooftop function near you. The Virginian-Jamaican wunderkind makes sure his signature saxophone is all over the cut, including a mean solo, while the chorus for “Lady Lady” is sure to stick in your mind and heart much like his viral-jam session video, “Tadow,” did when it was released last May.
If you haven’t become familiar with Maségo yet (how could you not?!) or just heard his name mentioned by Anderson .Paak on Sway’s World — do yourself a favor and take a deep dive into his past work, so you can be ready for the next wave crash when his debut project finally hits eardrums all over the universe.
Maségo is currently touring in Europe, where he will perform at the inaugural Smokin’ Grooves festival in June, before heading out on the road with Leon Bridges in August.
