Cheque's New Release Hustler ft. Fireboy DML: An Afrobeat Anthem for the Ages

In the vast landscape of Afrobeat, it’s not often that a track emerges with the kind of raw energy and authenticity that Cheque’sHustler brings to the table. Teaming up with Fireboy DML, this new release from his Chequemate EP is a magnetic blend of rhythm, lyricism, and emotion.

From the get-go, Hustler draws listeners into its world. The song’s opening lines, “Emi Omologo / Everywhere I go them dey follow,” are not just words but an invitation into Cheque’s universe, one where dreams are chased with fervour and obstacles are mere stepping stones. The narrative is compelling, painting a vivid picture of a local hero’s rise from obscurity to fame, all while staying true to his roots.

The production, courtesy of Basiqually, is nothing short of genius. It’s a harmonious blend of traditional Afrobeat rhythms with contemporary R&B undertones, creating a soundscape that’s both nostalgic and refreshingly modern. The beats pulse with life, making it nearly impossible not to move to the rhythm. Northmix’s mixing ensures that every note, every beat, and every lyric is heard with crystal clarity, adding depth and dimension to the track.

Fireboy DML’s contribution elevates Hustler to new heights. His rich and melodic voice complements Cheque’s perfectly, creating a duet that’s both harmonious and powerful. Their shared history and camaraderie shine through, adding layers of authenticity and emotion to the track.

Lyrically, Hustler is catchy. Lines like “Abinibi is different from ability / I know you blind but I bet you gon see” are not just catchy hooks but profound reflections on determination, self-belief, and the human spirit. The chorus, with its repetitive declaration of “I be hustler,” becomes an anthem, a mantra for anyone who’s ever dared to dream big.

With Hustler, Cheque, and Fireboy DML have given us a track to dance to and a narrative to inspire and uplift. It’s a song for the dreamers, the doers, and, most importantly, the hustlers.
