As he gears up to head out on tour later this spring, Masego is generating excitement amongst his fans with new music. In December, he made a noteworthy return with "You Never Visit Me." Prior to that, we heard his voice shine on "Say You Want Me." The latter is due to appear on his forthcoming album.

On Friday (February 10), the 29-year-old chiefly caught our attention with his "Two Sides" single. The short and sweet song was produced by Albert Hype and his pal BASSCHARITY. While speaking with Rated R&B, Masego previously revealed the main inspiration for his latest release.

"I love games. Do I ever. ‘Two Sides’ make the next person that is involved with me aware of the demons that I’m trying to fight," the Jamaica native said. "Geminis have a bad rep. And I was letting her know that I have the potential to move in this manner because of my past and hurt."

Masego then went on, "There’s no silver lining in this song. It’s just like, ‘I could be a bad guy. I could get what I want with my slick words and my seductive beguiling ways.'"

"Two Sides" marks the singer's first release of 2023, and sets the tone for his upcoming tour, kicking off in March. According to a press release, this isn't all we'll be hearing from the "Tadow" hitmaker over the next few weeks. More tunes are set to come as Masego prepares for his sophomore album, dropping via EQT Recordings and Capitol Records later this year.

Quotable Lyrics:

Flavour of love feels like bit of a clementine
Give me the fruit, my diet is alkaline
Think of the light as lime
Only need fifteen minutes of role-play time
