Nigerian singer/songwriter CON.tra.diction just released a piece from her album, #PopRockSoulJara.
Titled ‘Hidden Motives,’ it was written by CON.tra.diction while in traffic. She had a crush on her friend’s older brother and called her friend’s home phone, hoping his brother would pick it up. That got her thinking and she wrote the first line, “So I call you up sometimes/hidden motives/who knows if I’m hoping your brother picks up the phone”.
This version of ‘Hidden Motives’ was produced by Bigfoot of Micworx. There is another version which was produced by Cobhams which will appear as a bonus track on CON.tra.diction’s next album and the live guitar courtesy Ese Peters.
