Hot off the back of his Akademia Award, hip-hop and afro beat artist Gibrilville released his latest single ‘Can of Soda’ on June 22nd. Awarded the 2022 Outstanding Legacy Award on June 4th in California, the award acknowledged Gibrilville’s contribution to creating a musical legacy deemed timeless and important for future generations. Following the success of this, Gibrilville will be releasing ‘Can of Soda,’ a collaborative single from his upcoming album ‘GTMBTD.’
With half a million Spotify streams already under his belt from the release of his single ‘Dididaada,’ ‘Can of Soda’ follows the release of ‘Angels’, which addressed his struggles while in prison. ‘Can of Soda’ is filled with heartbreak and pain, a part of Gibrilville’s journey that is still as important as the happy moments. He explains, “I went into prison with a lot of pain. My ex and I had just lost a child due to complications. We really wanted the baby. I handled it badly, and I became unfaithful.” He met Jessica and fell in love immediately, touching upon their love story in the single. “Emotionally ‘Can of soda’ is heavy and is the perfect follow up to ‘Angels’ as my life story unfolds through my new album, ‘GTMBTD’,” Gibrilville explains.
