Below are three things fans should expect from Olamide's "UY Scuti" album.
1. CHANGE IN SOUND
Most people who have been listening to Olamide's songs right from when he released his breakthrough single which is titled "Eni Duro" can attest to the fact that his songs usually have high tempo and he usually rap or sing with a lot of energy. However, musicians evolve as they grow older, "Rock" which is the lead single of his forthcoming album has a completely different tempo and vibe, "Rock" has a lot of melodies and the instrumental of the song is calm. Musicians usually use the lead single of an album to give their fans an idea of what to expect in the album, since Olamide decided to switch his sound in the lead single of "UY Scuti" album, the whole songs in the album will most likely have a different sound.

2. NON COMMERCIAL ALBUM
In his last album which is titled "Carpe Diem", Olamide featured artistes who have commercial appeal such as Omah Lay, Peruzzi, Bella Shmurda and Fireboy, but in his forthcoming album, Olamide have decided to feature artistes who don't have commercial appeal such as Fave, Jaywillz and Layydoe. Rather than releasing a commercial album, Olamide probably want to use his forthcoming album to showcase his growth and evolution as an artiste.
3. ALBUM WITH LYRICAL DEPTH
Previous Olamide albums are usually filled with commercial songs that have little or no lyrical depth, since Olamide have decided to feature artistes that don't have commercial appeal, fans should expect his forthcoming album to have a lot of lyrical depth.
