After hyping it up for several days Jamaican reggae singer Warrior King finally shared his new single, “African Love,” done with Ghanaian artist MzVee. The record, which seems to be partially inspired by Garnett Silk‘s “Hello Mama Africa,” was officially released on April 9th via the Crawba record label.

Towards the end of February Jah Bouks released a touching new song titled “Gone Too Soon.” The record, which is clearly dedicated to his grandmother – who has apparently passed away from cancer – is released on his own Angola Records label.

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.
As he continues to push his 2020 album, “Twice As Tall,” Burna Boy is once again giving us some more visuals from that project. A few days ago he uploaded the official video for “Onyeka,” track number six on the LP.
