More proof that African boys are the actual wave right now… 

Burna Boy has achieved his biggest chart performance yet with his latest offering, Outside. The album entered the Billboard Hot 200 Reggae Albums chart at number 3!

Outside has been plugged as one of the best Nigerian albums to have been released in the first part of 2018, and if you’ve given it a spin like we have, you would agree.

Rock Your Body is the single from Outside

Burna Boy’s third album came shy of topping the chart as Vessel of Love by Hollie Cook remains at number 1, while Damian Marley’s Stony Hill takes the second spot.

The Nigerian artist’s previous appearance on the chart was with his sophomore album, LIFE, which peaked in the seventh position.

Burna Boy’s sweet relationship with South Africa was first solidified when he appeared on AKA’s smash hit All Eyes On Me, before he did the damn thing with Soke.

2018 has proven to be one hell of an iconic year for music. New artists have come to disrupt, top acts returned to the charts with solid releases and legends are back on the radar! The latest thrill has come from the return of legendary jazz band Stimela, who have released a new album. Entitled Catch The Train, the smooth project is available on all digital platforms and physical stores.

Jabu Sibumbe, Sam Ndlovu, Isaac “Mnca” Mtshali, Thapelo Khomo, Ntokozo Zungu, Sandile Ngema all got together to create another instalment for Stimela and this time they enlisted a few young musicians, including Nazania, with whom they amalgamated to create an African rooted jazz sound.

The 10 track album allows one to reminisce as they hear the familiar vocal ranges which pay homage to the hits Stimela have created over the years.

The band is excited about the release, saying they are happy to finally be giving fans what they had been patiently waiting for.

FIRST LOOK: AKA’s Pics For ‘Fela In Versace’ Visuals Are Rich AF

AKA on Wednesday thrilled fans with lush previews of his over the top Fela In Music shot

AKA once again broke his portion of the web when on Wednesday he unveiled behind the scenes snaps of his Fela In Versace music shoot.

SUPAMEGA thrilled fans with a crisp first look into the looming and lush visuals for Fela in Versace, the latest single to emerge from his first-day-Gold-selling third and final album, Touch My Blood. There will be no solo studio albums after that, and Touch My Blood has been a solid wrap to that journey.

Photographed by Austen Malema, the pics see AKA clad in a half-unbuttoned R25 000 Cornici Balletto print shirt, making his new blonde box fade pop. He launched the new colour locks last week to much fanfare and furore. The man knows how to capture headlines, we’ll give him that!

ALBUM REVIEW: AKA – TOUCH MY BLOOD IS HERE 

Featuring Kiddomant, Fela in Versace is a mid-tempo bop which finds AKA humming soulfully and belting through the synthetic autotune over afrobeat flavoured 808 and clean electric guitar. Unlike most of recent bangers, the single is thin on lyrical and more focused on a smooth vibe.

Effectively, this is the 5th single from Touch My Blood.
