Global Spin: Teni Asks For "No Days Off" In This Energetic Live Performance
Nigerian singer Teni celebrates her hard work with this upbeat performance of "No Days Off," a single from her upcoming album, 'Tears of the Sun.'
Nigerian singer/songwriter Teni traveled from Atlanta to Lagos as a young adult in a leap of faith. After a few months of grinding and "No Days Off," she quickly built her dream life — though it did mean she had to question a few people in her inner circle.
"Pay me my money, pay me my dough/ Is you my friend? Or, is you my foe?/ I'm about that life, is you about that life?/ Come outside if you about that life," Teni sings before switching to pidgin.
In this episode of Global Spin, Teni delivers a high-energy live performance of "No Days Off" from her October show in Los Angeles.
"No Days Off" is a single from her upcoming album, Tear of the Sun, which will arrive on Nov. 17. "'No Days Off' was made everywhere in the world. That's why it really is called 'No Days Off,'" Teni explained in a press statement. "It was made in Lagos. It was made in L.A. Some parts of it were also made in Cape Town."

Global Spin: Hataałii Pays Homage To His Navajo Heritage In This Picturesque Performance Of "Story Of Francisco"
Strumming an electric guitar in the middle of a desert road, Indigenous alt-rock singer Hataałii uncovers the unfortunate irony of life with "Story of Francisco," a track from his latest album, 'Singing into Darkness.'
Life has a way of dealing unlucky circumstances sometimes. As Indigenous alt-rock singer Hataałii tells in the "Story of Francisco," you can have a shimmering gleam in your eye, only to have the universe's "unholy jester" take it from you.
"Your age-old stone breaks apart somewhere/ By the child whose mother has lost her hair/ To our great defeat, limping up the stairs," Hataałii recounts in the song.
In this episode of Global Spin, Hataałii delivers a live performance of "Story of Francisco" from a desert road, paying homage to his roots in Window Rock, Arizona, the capital of the Navajo nation.
"Story of Francisco" is a track from Hataałii's latest album, Singing into Darkness, which the singer released on June 30 via Dangerbird Records. On Nov. 1, he premiered an expanded edition of the LP, which hosts three new tracks and five demos.
Singing into Darkness largely explores Hataałii's experience as a Navajo citizen, from the erasure of Indigenous culture throughout history to the unique dynamics between tourists and the residents of reservations.
