Minimalism goes a long way on “Infinity,” which demonstrates that a sing-song melody and a persistent beat are more than enough for a gently propulsive hit. P.Priime, the producer behind “Infinity,” managed to create a song with hardly any other instruments aside from voice and percussion.
A keyboard stabs occasionally in the background, but Olamide and Lay do the heavy lifting, repeating the song’s title in pretty, cascading permutations.
“Infinity” appeared on Olamide’s Carpe Diem album last month. The single has been especially popular in Nigeria the last three weeks, while Carpe Diem has quietly amassed more than 85 million streams worldwide.
