At the beginning and within the year, diehard fans of Runtown became uneasy, tweeting and making posts of how badly they wanted their fave back on the scene, as it had been a while since the incredibly talented singer had dropped a project after the release of Soundgod Fest Reloaded. So it was as if manna fell to earth when Runtown finally announced his album, “$IGNS,” alongside the lead single for the project. The announcement tweeted last month garnered thousands of likes and reactions.
And as promised, Runtown dropped the album and caused a frenzy. After the album was released, it debuted at the top spot of the Apple Music Nigeria Top Albums Chart. However, before the arrival of “$IGNS,” Seyi Vibez was leading the chart with his new release “Billion Dollar Baby 2.0,” the deluxe edition of that album, and Wizkid was following closely behind with his new album, “More Love, Less Ego.”
Six days later, Runtown still holds the scepter with his solid new project. The 14-track LP comes with two unexpected guest features from Nigerian fast-rising singer Jamopyper and Mr. Hudson. Yes, the same musician featured on Jay-Z’s “Forever Young.” Look, you are doing yourself a disservice if you are yet to give “$IGNS” a spin. In your best interest, give the album a listen today on any chosen streaming service of your preference.
