US-based up-and-coming R&B/afrobeat star Gbeke, started performing in the fourth grade and has been releasing singles and EPs since 2017. She later got the opportunity of a lifetime in 2021, performing at the Made in America music festival among other prestigious concerts. Her latest single “Top Priority” was inspired by her own life experiences stemming from a cheating boyfriend who went back to his ex to do the deed. The single is bolstered by a mellow and hypnotic soundscape provided by Arieenati while Gbeke takes the reins with her silky melodic vocals. The singer details the situation clearly but it’s far from a tear-jerkey as she focuses more on what needs to happen than revelling in the terrible ordeal. As the title suggests, Gbeke implores listeners to know that self-love is key and that putting yourself first makes life worth it.
