Towards the end of August, Patoranking will be joining the slew of Nigerian artists with new album releases. Titled Three, significant for being his third studio project, the dancehall star initially made the announcement last month via an Instagram post. Comprising 12 tracks, the album scores collaborations from Tiwa Savage, Flavor, Sauti Sol, King Promise, to name a few, and it’s one of the most anticipated music projects of the year.
Now, Patoranking has released the tracklist for Three, showing us a surface glimpse into the ride we are in for.

In the post, Patoranking briefly mentions how he came from the ghetto and how music has put him on a transformative journey, which is only just the beginning. Only recently, Patoranking did a remake of Bob Marley’s One Love, alongside the Marley family and diverse artists from across the world for UNICEF for COVID-19 relief.
He also launched ALU Patoranking Scholarship in conjunction with the African Leadership University (ALU), offering 10 students full scholarships to study at the innovative university.
Three is coming after Patoranking’s sophomore project Wilmer, and arrives August 28th.
