This release is the first single off his forthcoming debut EP titled, ‘808 Rhapsody’, set for release this June.
“Cover Me” is a unique blend of Afro-pop, infused with a catchy amapiano beat that is sure to get listeners moving. DJ 808 showcases his exceptional talent and creativity as a DJ, Caltonic SA brings the smooth amapiano vibes while Peruzzi adds his soulful voice to the mix, delivering an unforgettable performance.
Speaking about the collaboration, DJ 808 said, “I have always wanted to work with SouthAfrican producer, Caltonic SA. He sent over some beats, I picked the one I felt was the best and I added some ‘DJ 808’ recipes to brighten the beat to my own perfect taste. I immediately reached to my Manager so we could brainstorm on who would kill this beat, we figured Peruzzi was a perfect match. Peruzzi heard the beat and fell in love with the beat immediately! We vibed in the studio and everything was just one take; vibes upon vibes.”
Peruzzi, who is known for his hit songs such as “Majesty” and “Amaka,” expressed his excitement for the release of “Cover Me.” He said, “Working with DJ 808 on this song was an incredible experience.
