Tamba Hali, best known by football fans as a linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, is now making moves on the musical gridiron.
Hali debuted his skills as a singer, rapper and songwriter with the release of his first single, “One for Me.” The feel-good, Afrobeat-driven track is the first of several forthcoming songs from Hali’s independent label Relumae, which means the one that shines the brightest.
Already a standout on the football field, Hali has also attracted the ears of some of the hottest producers in the game. That growing list of early believers/collaborators includes Mannie Fresh (Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Big Tymers), DJ Camper (Jay Z, Chris Brown, Big Sean), Metro Boomin (Future, Post Malone, 21 Savage) and Devin Cruise (Wiz Khalifa, Lil Yachty, Ty Dolla $ign). Hali is currently collaborating with in-demand Nigerian producer Masterkraft, who helmed the “One for Me” sessions.
The romance-themed track embraces Hali’s overriding sentiment that love conquers all. “That’s my style of music, the lane I choose to be in,” says the Liberian native. “And that’s the feeling I want my music to give to others.”
