Nothing gets our musical hearts going like the sounds of celebration for the African Woman!
Crazy full with talent, A-List producer Reinhard Tega works with powerful vocalist Funbi, famous for his hit single Hallelujah – in this dedication to the confident, strong, talented, funny, beautiful and all round amazing African woman; ‘Arewa‘.
Arewa is not only lyrically qualified to get you in a good mood, the sonic dance feel to the single gives it a melodious ring that only reminds us why we love Reinhard.
So click below, listen, love and share this!
We’ve all got a little bit of ‘freaky’ in our bones. Jeremy Loops certainly has enough for a life time.
The South African singer songwriter and record producer, shares a new single ‘Freak’. Off his sophomore album ‘Critical As Water’ which is due for release on the 16th of March and is already available on iTunes for Pre-Order.
This leads up to the official launch of the album on the 10th of March. More info Here.
Contrary to face value, hip hop acts are lovers. Some might even go as far as calling them ‘Hopeless romantics. One could give examples but lets not.
Let’s introduce you instead, to a part of South African hip hop act ‘Big Star‘ you may not know yet. Leading up to his forth coming project, the rapper releases ‘Closer‘ and no one can tell you more about the song than he could.
So in his words: “I realized that we as South African rappers are afraid to make emotional music , honest love songs . So I created this peace to appreciate the woman in my life Currently and just shed light on a positive love story and celebrate a new love . Initially the song was written to an acoustic guitar and Tazzy built around it and created a masterpiece. This song is for everybody , very cross over in the sound but also celebrates our home sounds with the guitar lines at the end of the song … ‘Closer’ feels like love in color if that makes sense…”
We’ll stop now so you can click below and have melodic moments.
It’s Trippy, vibey dark and melodious! ‘Psychedelia‘ is the latest offering from Cameroonian born South African hip hop act; Yung Swiss.
Proving that the sparks between them both, out lives ‘Jungle’ he works yet again with K.O (Mr. Cashtime).
The experience of loss and the journey to acceptance is one that we all handle very differently. In his first work for 2018, Ricky Tyler shares painfully raw emotions we all could perhaps relate to.
‘Deja Vu’ is a heartfelt pop song reminiscing the memories made with the ones we loved. The ones that meant more to us than we could have known.
Written with such precision, rhythm and rhyme, Ricky recaps past experiences with his mates and learns to deal with the fact that they are no longer here.
Zocci Coke Dope‘s ‘Current State Of Mind II‘ isn’t all rosy but it’s certainly shifted focus to ‘self’.
The all too familiar story of regret for failed relationships is the theme of this single. Famous for his hooks, you know you would be singing along to this in no time.
Before you go ‘cut the diamond ring’, press play!
In 2017 Nigerian pop act Tito Da Fire released ‘One Kiss‘ and today he shares the Lovers Rock remix by American producer Nexxes.
Don’t give it just one play. Hit the repeat button and cheers to a fun times ahead.
It is apparent that the relationship between Coca Cola and Jason Derulo didn’t end at the studios of ‘Coke Studio Africa‘.
In preparation of the FIFA world cup later this year, Jason Derulo has the ultimate task of creating the official theme song for the biggest tournament of the most popular sport in the world.
In a welcome development, the Coca Cola team invited South Africa’s oh so precious ‘Abuti fill up’; Cassper Nyovest to collaborate with Derulo for the South African version of “Colours“.
