Mayo Drops Brand New Track “My Girl”

Mayowa Oluwasegun Arogundade, aka Mayo brings an unlikely combination of progressive musical sounds to the table with his music – comprised of R&B piano chords, house grooves, a Hip-Hop bounce, Trap snares, and industrial scrapes. That, partnered with his penchant for meaningful, approachable lyrics makes for a striking Artist Profile different from any artist today. He strikes the balance of being musically innovative yet lyrically relatable, and this juxtaposition has afforded him the opportunity to open up for headliners such as Big Sean, Kid Ink, Logic, Casey Veggies, & Hopsin – as well as garnered him features with Complex, The Wild Mag, IDOL and more.

Stay tuned for more from this up-and-coming talent as he has plans to release more new songs all summer detailing his personal story and unique music and make sure to check out his just-announced advice column with FUSE to go along with the ‘Summer of Love’ beginning next week.
