Into an ocean of defiance filled with pleasant melodies and bold statements that characterize the new generation of Afrobeats, we have dug deep to handpick some of the best new music from across the continent that you should get familiar with.
If you love New Music Fridays just as much as we do, our Apple Music and Spotify playlists should be your go-to playlist for this weekend. We’ve got our Top Picks of the new stuff that’s dropped across the continent this week.
We have updated the playlist with our Top Picks from this week’s fresh music releases and we hope you enjoy listening to them just like we did.
Focalistic – Ke Star Remix ft. Davido (SA)
Tule jor! Hearing Davido say this on a song for the first time made me jump, lol. Davido killed his verse, no doubt. Love how the flow of the original song wasn’t tampered with and they really just caught their cruise, the exact way every Amapiano song has you cruising.
Look around you. What do you see? What do you feel? What do you hear? It’s new music babyyyyy! We launched a new Apple Music Playlist few weeks ago, because we love you and we want you to have first hand updates on some of the beautiful gems to come out of Africa. On this week’s edition, Our Top Picks from all the fresh African music are highlighted below.
