As anticipation continues to rise for his next album, SK3, K.O carries on with what’s proving to be a successful roll out, releasing a new single, “SETE”. This time he recruits new kids on the block Young Stunna and Blxckie, with a collaboration that sees the veteran rapper flexing his versatility muscle yet again. He gets in his mellow hybrid bag of soulful amapiano, afro beats, R&B and hip hop soul.
“SETE” is a smooth and sensual love song, a forte K.O has proven time and time again that he possesses. It’s a song reminiscent, in content, to his previous love songs which became hit singles such as “Skhanda Love” and “Say You Will”. An impressive feat because notwithstanding that similarity, this time he has taken an entirely different sonic approach. Credit to him for identifying Young Stunna and Blxckie as the perfect collaborators because their contributions add tremendously to the song without necessarily outshining K.O.
“SETE” comes off the back of the release of the rappity-rap single “SKHANDAVILLE” on July 25th, as well as “EMOYENI” on March 24th. All three songs show a different side of K.O and his aptitude as a seriously talented artist who, despite years in the game, is showing no signs of letting up or slowing down. He has the uncanny ability to adapt to the musical landscape without necessarily abandoning his signature style, making his most ardent fans even more excited for what SR3 holds for them.
