‘4LUV’

Blxckie released his EP, 4Luv, on 18 February. The EP comes after the release of his debut album B4now released in 2021. He told TshisaLive that 4Luv is an “exploration of another side of him.” 

The EP was produced by star producers Zoocci Coke Dope, Hercules, London Rhodes and Blxckie himself.

“A lot of amapiano beats have super chord progressions so I decided to sing on them instead of just rapping and I feel like it’s easy that way.”

“I feel like I have a knack for kwaito and slow-tempo types of things, so to sing on it is like a joy to me,” he told the publication.
