Award-winning gospel artist, Cwesi Oteng, releases a fresh new single off his most anticipated album, “Anthems”. After being silent for almost four years, the release of Next In Line hints a possible comeback from Cwesi. The single, ‘Next in Line’, and its video is already receiving plaudits from pundits and fans and generating buzz on social media.
‘Next in Line’ is a confessional song of faith and hope of better days coming. It is a fusion hotbed of Hip-Hop, Techno, Soft rock and Pop strings beautifully woven together to keep listeners dancing. According to Cwesi, ‘Next in Line’ introduces the sound carved for the ”Anthems” album – a global sound and essence of congregational worship and praise as greats like Hillsong and Bethel Music have contributed to the world.
”The first single, ‘Next in Line’ is a perfect symbol of the entire album and rightly so its sound and message attest to what is to come. I have never done a project where I felt so not in control like this ”Anthems” project. Everyone on the team knew that a higher hand was controlling and directing everything from our strategy and song writing sessions to rehearsals and the live audio and video taping. I see many nations and tribes singing these songs in large gatherings”, Cwesi revealed.
Cwesi is noted for his avant-garde approach to his music which has received rave reviews and earned him many awards. ”Anthems” is expected to be another ground-breaking album. The album was live recorded at the First Love Center, Legon, in Accra and mainly features Cwesi’s music team, Flo’Riva Inc. The album has a few singles with their videos, away from being released and excitingly ‘Next in Line’ is giving it the needed buzz.
