Lots of new mainstream records seem to have strong afrobeat/Naija music influence these days, yet none of them seem to have any afrobeat nor African artists listed in the credits.
Granted “One dance” was the biggest song of 2016 and there will naturally be copycats of the style, but some of these artists are either studying Afrobeat and contemporary African music or urban music genre lines are getting really blurred. The cadence, the flow, the melodies, the vocal style,…I smell Wande Coal/Maleek Berry, but what do I know right? lol
Anyway, please listen to this song and let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
