“Attention” is the 24-year-old singer’s first single of 2022. Omah Lay kept busy throughout 2021 with a steady stream of releases and a sold-out US tour. In November, he shared the buttery “Free My Mind.” His smash hit “Understand” from July was a contemplative, yet danceable record powered by his signature vocal warmth. In June 2021, he was featured on Masterkraft’s remix of Bieber’s chart-topping “Peaches.” Recognizing all of his talent and hard work, the 2022 NAACP Image Awards nominated Omah Lay for “Outstanding International Song.”
It almost feels destined that Lay and Bieber would connect for a single as enchanting as this. “Attention” is a glimpse of what’s to come from Omah’s debut album Boy Alone, out this spring. On March 20th Omah Lay will embark on his “Boy Alone” world tour, kicking off at the Cocofest in Manchester, England, with stops in Australia, Germany, France, Italy, London, and more. Full tour dates HERE. 2021 was a landmark year for Afropop as homegrown stars reached new levels of international visibility and acclaim. This is only the start for Omah Lay, who is well on his way to becoming the next Nigerian musician to ascend to global stardom.
