Originally inhabited by the Lucayan, a branch of the Arawakan-speaking Taino people, the Bahamas were the site of Columbus' first landfall in the New World in 1492. Although the Spanish never colonised the Bahamas, they shipped the native Lucayans to slavery in Hispaniola. The islands were mostly deserted from 1513 until 1648, when English colonists from Bermuda settled on the island of Eleuthera.
His third album, Bahamas Is Afie, was released on August 19, 2014. It was awarded first place on Q's Top 20 Albums of 2014.

Their pessimistic outlook led them to ironically suggesting "to emigrate to the Bahamas", in an argument to Knut Mellenthin, a prominent spokesman for the majority. "Bahamas" became the name of their main publication organ.
An apartment (in American and Canadian English) or a flat (in British English) is a self-contained housing unit (a type of residential real estate) that occupies only part of a building, correctly, on a single level without a stair. Such a building may be called an apartment building, apartment complex (in American English), apartment house (in American English), block of flats, tower block, high-rise or, occasionally mansion block (in British English), especially if it consists of many apartments for rent. In Scotland it is called a block of flats or, if it's a traditional sandstone building, a tenement, which has a pejorative connotation elsewhere. Apartments may be owned by an owner/occupier, by leasehold tenure or rented by tenants (two types of housing tenure).
The term apartment is favoured in North America (although flat is used in the case of a unit which is part of a house containing two or three units, typically one to a floor) and also is the preferred term in Ireland. In the UK, the term apartment is more usual in professional real estate and architectural circles where otherwise the term flat is commonly, but not exclusively, for an apartment without a stair (hence a 'flat' apartment). Technically multi-storey apartments are referred to as 'duplex' (or 'triplex') indicating the number of floors within the property. Usage generally follows the British in Singapore, Hong Kong and most Commonwealth nations.
Released in February 2012, "Apartment" peaked at number 26 on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.Consequence of Sound's Caitlin Meyer described the song as "a seemingly average track that quickly crescendos into an impressive showcase of Gadhia’s vocal range."
Chris White of musicOMH called it "an instantly infectious slice of quintessentially American alternative rock."
In 2011, Young the Giant performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (January), on Later... with Jools Holland (May), and on MTV's Unplugged: Young the Giant, which began streaming online in November.
A remixed version of the song by Captain Cuts appeared on Young the Giant's Remix EP, released in 2011.
