Afropop artist Mr Eazi has released his new EP, Something Else. It is now available on all digital music platforms courtesy of Eazi’s own Banku Music label and emPawa Africa.
Produced by Killertunes and E Kelly, lead single “The Don” is a dramatic, opera-inspired slice of afro trap. On “E Be Mad,” the album’s second single, producer Kel P surrounds Eazi’s sonorous tenor with the textures of vintage Ghanaian highlife music.
In addition to Killertunes, E Kelly and Kel P, Something Else also features production from Spellz, Blaq Jerzee, and Jaylon. Its lone guest (on “Cherry”) comes from Kenya’s Xenia Manasseh, one of 30 emerging artists handpicked by Eazi to participate in the emPawa30 talent incubator.
One of the reasons we like India Arie and are always supporting her work is because she is 100% authentic. Nowadays artists that have achieved her level of success tend to be very ingenuine and in some cases outright fake.
India Arie literally just released a new song with British singer and musician Jake Isaac. Based on her post on social media, which we’ve shared below, it is clear that she is all about the music, not the fame, stats or anything of that sort.
The new song is titled “Gold” and it is now available on all music platforms.
See India Arie‘s post below:
New Song : GOLD Jake Isaac ft. India Arie
I met @iamjakeisaac via IG summer of 2020 ~ he asked if I’d do a song with him, so I went to listen to his music, and I was so impressed, it was a EASY yes. When it comes to music I do ONLY what I FEEL. Thats the only way (for me) to get a great performance. @iamjakeisaac had a song in mind for is, that I liked, but didn’t hear myself on.
So, I told him my rule … I have to LOVE it. Smart of him! lol ~ he sent a link with all the songs he had for his project ( I’m VERY selective lol) … and I heard GOLD and I KNEW!, it was the one.
Today, 7pm (EST) GOLD Jake Issac ft. India Arie is released and it so delicate and soulful and lovey. Link in my bio
Thank you Jake.”

In celebration of legendary singer, songwriter, activist and actor Harry Belafonte‘s 94th birthday on March 1, a surprise live virtual party will be held on Sunday, February 28 at 7 PM ET.
The Gathering for Harry will feature performances & appearances from Common, Danny Glover, Chuck D, Bernie & Jane Sanders, Stacey Abrams, Aloe Blacc, Tamika D. Mallory, Rev. Al Sharpton, Jackie Cruz and more, benefitting nonprofit organization The Gathering for Justice, which Belafonte founded after witnessing a news report of a 5-year-old Black girl being handcuffed and arrested in her Florida classroom for “being unruly.”
The organization’s mission is to build a movement to end child incarceration while working to eliminate the racial inequities that permeate the justice system. Belafonte was a confidant of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and a prominent force in ending South Africa’s oppressive apartheid regime and the release of his friend, Nelson Mandela. He’s also achieved EGOT status (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award) and his Calypso album was the 1st LP in history to sell more than one million copies
