Multi-instrumentalist Masego recently released the track “Passport” that’s taking listeners on a much-needed trip ahead of his forthcoming sophomore project. On it, Masego sings about wanting to wander across the globe, something fans stuck inside amid the COVID-19 pandemic can relate to.

Got my passport
I’ve been searching, I’ve been working
To get out this town
Country hoppin’
Got my passport
I’ve been searching, I’ve been working
To get out this town
Country hoppin’, baby

“Passport” comes just days after the two year anniversary of Masego’s debut project Lady Lady that sonically shook up listeners with features from SiR, Tiffany Gouché, and vocals from Ari Lennox. The project was hailed as a unique foray into Masego’s world, one that’s fun, classy, and coquettish.
