Celia Album: Tiwa Savage Speaks On Collabo With Sam Smith

While the entire music industry is awaiting the release of Tiwa Savage’s album titled Celia, the female singer has revealed more about it.

Speaking with Apple Music in an interview, Tiwa Savage spoke about how it became possible for her to record a song with renowned Sam Smith.

According to Tiwa Savage, she doubted at first if bringing the British Singer, Sam Smith on a track will happen even if she already started plans with her manager to bring him on board.

However, 6 months later, her wish came true  which led to the widely-accepted track, Temptation, which has been getting fans and followers hey wire.

See her words where she revealed more about the album:

“When I walked in, because we had a recording session with… We had nine rooms in a hotel and I had different pieces of writing, and I walked into this particular room and I heard this record, and I heard the chorus, and I was just like, “This song is so special.” I sat with it for days just trying to get the perfect topline.”

And we did everything, and my label are like, “Which songs do you want to do a feature on?” And I said, “There is this one song that I hear an artist on,” and they were like, “Who is it?” I’m like, “I hear Sam Smith.” But I know that’s never going to happen. So, that’s it. We just walked away from it. I promise you, I wasn’t even thinking that anything was going to happen. Literally, I think maybe six months later, my manager calls me and my manager’s like, “Sam is going to do the record.” I said, “Sam who? What are you talking about?” 

Even still, I was just like, no, this is impossible. Five days later, she calls me and she pulls a Khaled on me. She says, “The vocals are in.” I opened my email, I heard it, and I literally had goosebumps, because we don’t know how amazing Sam is. 

“I was like, wow, this is incredible. And it just changed the whole face of the project. Do you know what I mean? Because this is really happening for afrobeat, not even just with Tiwa.”
