Depth of wisdom drips from new album ‘Fortune Cookies’ from Atlanta artist 40 Abioye
ATLANTA, GA – 40 Abioye is the true definition of an Indie success story. Fiercely independent and articulate, this Atlanta-based artist has found a way to please both the hardcore Hip Hop fans and a much wider audience through soulful hooks, picture-painted verses and savvy collaborations with some big names in the industry. That pedigree is put on full display with his new album “Fortune Cookies,” which will be available across all streaming platforms later this year.
Everybody loves getting the little bits of wisdom found in the center of a fortune cookie, and that’s the sentiment 40 Abioye is bringing with his new album. With every single song on the project, 40 offers messages to the world that are a variety of good vibes, inspiration and challenges to look at the world with a different perspective.
“When you get a fortune cookie, you never know what kind of message you’re gonna get,” 40 said. “That’s the same idea with this album – you never know what you’re gonna get until you push the button and see what the next song is about. I’m giving you a variety of different feels and I’m showing my growth as an artist. I start off the album by giving an introduction to myself and my perseverance over the years of doing this as an independent artist – the trials and tribulations of that journey. Then I have songs that talk about being the CEO of my own record label – Stoners Avenue Entertainment. I do some songs for the stoner community and talk about the cannabis movement that’s happening right now. Then I go to the females and talk about relationships. There are some songs about politics and the current state of what’s going on in the world. So really every song is a message.”
The debut single from the project carries the same name as the album, “Fortune Cookies” and is now available across all streaming platforms. Fortune Cookies features well known Atlanta artist Derez De’shon. 40 Abioye is originally from Flint, Michigan and teamed up with well known Atlanta Artist Derez De’shon to gain a new audience in 40 Abioye’s new home of Atlanta GA. It’s a subtle nod to the overall message of the song, he said, which is about the perseverance he had to go through to get to where he is today as a fast-rising artist in Atlanta.
“I just want my legacy to be timeless songs,” he said of his music. “I want to be known as an artist who fought hard from the bottom and built his way up independently. My music is good enough to get me where I want to go without taking any shortcuts. I want people to see that you don’t have to have all the connections and a big following if you’re talented enough and believe in yourself. You can achieve success if you work hard and believe in yourself. You can’t go wrong when you give people your true self.”
In addition to “Fortune Cookies,” 40 said he’s planning on releasing a second album called “Growth, Pain and Struggle” later this year or in early 2021.
