Riky sent social media into a frenzy over the weekend when he previewed the song at Major League’s Members Only party and again when DJ Venom played it on his set at The Social, and fans have spent this whole week begging Riky to drop the single. The song debuted on Metro FM this morning and is available on all music platforms.
‘HOME’ is a slow burn amapiano jam that features acclaimed producer, Mas Musiq, and sees Riky showing off his vocal chops over lyrics about how this beautiful land is still his home and the ups and downs that he has experienced in the rap game.
