CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
Best Global Music Album
Best Global Music Performance
The leading pioneer of the Afropop genre, Adekunle Gold remains one of the most prolific, popular, and elegant artists to come out of Africa to date. Gold’s fourth studio album, Catch Me If You Can, reflects the breadth of natural beauty and dignity of the black experience across art and style that represents Gold’s personality itself: stylish, timeless, and groundbreaking.
Symbolizing the space that Gold sees himself in life, Catch Me If You Can encapsulates the sounds of freedom, clarity, and confidence in the person he’s becoming, and centers on the importance of growth, shedding expectations from others, and throwing oneself into the unknown.
With collaborations including Ty Dolla $ign, Stefflon Don, Lucky Daye, Foushee, Davido, Fatoumata Diawara and more, this album solidifies Gold’s place amongst the greats and furthers the evolution of his sound, his songwriting, and his production. Describing the music, Gold himself says it plays as the sound of a happy man and puts forth soulful experiences in love, fatherhood, and understanding.
“The Nigerian singer has arguably the most purely beautiful voice in the Afrobeats scene. He puts his smooth yet earthy tones to seductive use here, with a swaying, deceptively simple chorus”
“Adekunle Gold is back with another
laid-back, body-swaying single.”
“His new single sounds like a victory lap”
