After gaining over 1.5B+ streams and having his previous album, Mr. Money With The Vibe, set the record for becoming the highest-charting Nigerian debut album of all-time, global superstar Asake is back with his second album, Work Of Art. Asake was previously mentioned in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR, Pitchfork, The FACE, & more atop of their ‘Best of 2022’ lists, with Rolling Stone noting he has “become one of Nigeria’s biggest breakout stars in recent years”.
To celebrate, EMPIRE is hosting an album release party in partnership with Jean-Michel Basquiat: King Pleasure©. Asake's Work of Art Paint & Sip Party will invite fans to create their own "Work of Art" with an exclusive guided painting session drawn from inspiration of the artwork seen within the King Pleasure exhibition in Los Angeles and the Asake single titled "Basquiat".
Tickets include access to view nearly 200 rarely seen paintings, drawings, ephemera and artifacts from the Jean-Michel Basquiat curated from the family estate, guided paint & sip*, music from the Work of Art album, and curated cocktails.
Three guided Paint & Sip seated sessions, limited to the first 120 guests who register for each session upon arrival. Last entry is 8:00 pm. Gallery doors close promptly at 8:30pm. 21+
