About Pay Up:
"Pay Up" is an electrifying hip hop/drill track that boasts shimmering keys, exquisite synths, and a powerful driving beat, all blending seamlessly to complement the vocal prowess of Haywire. The mastermind behind the production, Lazughi, conceptualised the track and perfectly harmonised with Haywire's vocal style. Both artists met while attending the University of Lagos and bonded over their shared love for hip hop, R&B, and Afrobeat music. Lazughi sent Haywire a rough instrumental version of "Pay Up," which he refined and further developed with the help of sound engineer Spyrit Myx, resulting in a finely tuned masterpiece. Through his captivating lyrics, Haywire's unbridled confidence and lyrical excellence are on full display as he emphasises the importance of hustling and making money, creating an anthem for all those pursuing their dreams. "Pay Up" is an emotional and poignant song that highlights the significance of persevering through life's challenges and struggles while pursuing one's dreams. The track also features a blend of melancholic synths and banging 808s, making it a must-listen for hip hop/drill enthusiasts seeking meaningful lines and playful yet sweet melodies.
Haywire lives up to his name, with his music characterized by wildly creative lyricism, innovative melodies, clever wordplay, and smooth rhythms that set him apart from others in the industry. Since starting his professional music career in 2011, he has released three solo projects and collaborated on one joint project. With the release of the video for "Pay Up," the lead single from his latest project, Haywire is poised to take us on another thrilling journey, further establishing himself as a rising star in the industry. It's impossible to overstate his exceptional work ethic, as he continues to demonstrate incredible talent and passion for his craft.
