At Midnight on May 13, 2020, Odunsi released a surprise EP to tell us that Everything You Heard Is True. This EP came just after his subtle single release with Tems. The EP housed features from Maison2500, Gigi Atlantis, DETO BLACK, and Amaarae. This is a very experimental project that shows Odunsi’s eclectic and fun side.
Read the review below:
Odunsi (The Engine) has always been known for his ever-lasting knack for experimentation and making songs that are in the moment. In a conversation with The Native, Odunsi said that the project's title is an acceptance of the chatter that constantly surrounds his career, fashion choices, and ways of expressing himself. 'Everything You Heard Is True' is a very experimental project sonically, but was direct and precise with its lyrics. The 7-song project was mostly filled with dreamy chord progressions and trap drums but had elements of Afro-pop and RnB. The structure and theme were well thought of and it played out perfectly. The features were spot on and all featured artiste played their part well. 'Body Count' is a fan favorite already as it is a song about women owning the power of their sex life. Gigi Atlantis dropped a boppy yet bold hook as she repeated the sentence "Don't worry bout your body count, let your body bounce..." Amaarae came through with her unique vocals and DETO BLACK ended it with a hard trap verse.
Odunsi didn't hold back with this project and this is the most fun and insightful body of work he has dropped yet.
