After weeks of being heavily teased – and rightly so due to boomin’ single ‘Like to Drip’, Kev & Grenade’s much anticipated LP, ”Utopia” finally hit audio shores today and makes it on iTunes charts. Boasting of 11 songs, 3 features and a total of 9 different producers, ”Utopia” jettisons fans into a wholesome mix of Kev & Grenade’s style.
Setting sail with ‘Utopia’ and docking on ‘Closing Prayer’, the LP cruises gracefully atop some A1 production. Amid its thrilling 11-track run, ‘Gbelemor’ is one of the many destined to be a fan favourite. The bouncy piece, which features Joey B is undeniably one of the smoothest on the record, next to ‘Trey Young’ and ‘Slippin’.
Kev the Topic and Nana Grenade are the two halves of fast-rising musical group, Kev & Grenade. Over the years, the duo have a earned a host of well-received records like ‘Adonko’, ‘Pac Gang Till I Go’, ‘Do My Thing’ and ‘Osu’ to their credit. After enjoying massive airplay and buzz from their joint single ‘Adonko’, the two have been relentless in their quest to take over the Ghanaian music scene.
‘Utopia’ lives up to it’s month-long hype and delivers strongly on all fours: production, content, style and replay value. Kev & Grenade are on to something and fans have their full attention.
