‘VELLI IS BACK’
On the 28th of March Yazzavelli dropped the first single off an all-female 4 single compilation that is scheduled to be released this summer.
Nothing is more annoying than being the next in the rotation and having the person before you start telling you a story inexplicably forgetting that everyone else is waiting. Most smokers can relate to this experience, which is essentially what Kpoli Police is about. It depicts the mood and the atmosphere of the room in that scenario.
The song, a remake of Bulletproof Skin by Busta Rhymes and Skillibeng; in terms of production, features Dopeman Twizzy, who was previously featured in her song Lizzo.
The song was released under Velli Records.
