TOBi isn't slowing down. 

The Nigerian-Canadian artist returns to our pages with "Werking," his third single of 2019, following "City Blues" and "Sweet Poison." 

"Struggle is a necessary part of life and I let this song serve as a reminder that I'd keep going regardless of the length and pain of the journey," TOBi said about the track. "This one is a wake-up call for anybody who feels down and out, or experiencing a long period of plateau. Some tension and setbacks may be the perfect opportunity for a breakthrough."

"Werking" was produced by his previous collaborators Take a Daytrip and !llmind, the latter of which praised the artist's range and unique sound.

"I met TOBi while at a session in Toronto and didn't know what to expect," !llmind said. "When he pressed play, I immediately knew he had something special. The soul in his voice is unique and rare, and the fact is that he RAPS better than actual rappers."
