The five-track project showcases his Afrobeats influence and reveals his unique place in the colourful fabric of Nigeria’s musical landscape. The project starts with ‘Wait’, an easy track that introduces the listener to Yarden’s addictive sound. The song aims to establish Yarden’s fascination with time and how he uses the concept to explore wider subjects like relationships, personal connection, and freedom. ‘Divine’ sees the young star comfortable at a faster pace, demonstrating his versatility. The artfully compact project finishes with the beautiful closer, ‘Pressure’, an emotionally reflective track that’s made to calm inner troubles. The two-year process of putting together his debut EP ‘The One Who Descends’ with Etins Records is said to have moulded Yarden’s creative process to provide a five-track offering that showcases his Afrobeats influence and reveals his unique place in the colourful fabric of Nigeria’s musical landscape. With production from upcoming homegrown talent and only two features from friends, Swayvee and Morien, there’s an intentional decision to work with those integral to his journey.

Yarden’s November 2022 single, ‘Wetin’, has become a huge hit, reaching about 56 million global streams and demonstrating his captivating vocals and songwriting prowess. The record is growing, with about 100k streams a day. With ‘Wetin’, Yarden showed his ability and willingness to create an expressive mood and feeling in his music that extends beyond the bounds of genre. Always striving for greatness and success, Yarden began diligently creating content on TikTok, and ‘Wetin’ amassed over 105k creations on the app. Incredibly, the single also has over 400k Shazams. Yarden’s charisma extends to his writing, and on his most recent single, ‘Busy Body’, he creates addictive melodies over a hazy and atmospheric production.
