DJ Melzi has released his new single, The Streets, featuring Abidoza, Alie Keys and a surprising opening verse by Cassper Nyovest.
DJ Melzi took to his Instagram stories on Friday, 17 September 2021, to confirm the availability of his new single, The Streets, featuring Abidoza, Alie Keys and Cassper Nyovest. The release of the single was hinted at when DJ Melzi released his debut single earlier this year titled La Melza. The release of the single affirmed the 19-year-old as a promising new voice in the amapiano landscape. Moreover, the single’s release also marked the availability of his upcoming debut album, A 19 Year Old King, for pre-orders.
According to the shared promotional statement circulated on the day of release, “On The Streets, Melzi enlists Cassper Nyovest to sing and rap about how he retired his “city boy” cap after finding the one. Cassper Nyovest starts the song by showcasing his vocal ability as he sings the opening verse. The rapper is in element as the song builds transitioning into raps referencing his own love story.”
Going on to add, “On production, DJ Melzi worked with Alie Keys and Abidoza to deliver a classic amapiano ballad which ebbs and flows through sweet moments and those that just call for the listener to dance.”
The single is available for purchase on Apple Music.
