WATCH: Sha Sha Returns With New Single ‘Woza’

After taking somewhat of a hiatus from churning out back-to-back amapiano bangers as the first lady of the popular genre, Sha Sha on Friday made a triumphant return with a brand new single. Entitled ‘Woza’, the single debuted with a stunning music video.

The single marks the first release since the songstress dominated charts with her autobiographical debut EP Blossom.

With all eyes on her, the pressure to duck a sophomore slump and keep the momentum going without taking a dip in the quality of her sound, the Zimbabwe-born singer had to play her cards strategically.

And with a BET Viewers’ Choice: Best New International Act award under her belt, she had no choice but to go for the jugular. Twinning the sultry mid-tempo piano layered single with a conceptual visual on the day of its release is a statement. There’s no time for games.

The music video, directed by Nate Thomas (Simmy “Ngiyesaba”, DJ Sliqe “Spaan Saam featuring Kwesta”) and Nigel Stockl, sees a gorgeously styled Sha Sha move through a selection of power poses and choreographed moves flanked by a group of dancers.

The video then cuts to the club where she’s in her element on the low-lit dance floor as well as against a neon laser backdrop, evident that Sha Sha is comfortable anywhere and makes music for everyone.

Spotify’s Top 10 Most Streamed SA Songs in 2020

Numbers don’t lie.

Published

on

 

With 2020 a mere four weeks away from wrapping up, the time has come to reflect on the trends that dominated the year. It was a challenging year, thanks to the pandemic and the tough landscape it created globally.

But Spotify deals with just the music, and they have now dished out their Spotify 2020 Wrapped lists to indicate the best performing songs on the streaming platform through the year.

And it’s quite interesting because, it would appear many hits from 2019 continued to rule this year. One might even wonder if the lockdowns, which prevented conventional ways of promoting music and getting it to the streets, have frozen time for a while.

Elaine’s ‘You’re the One’ was the most streamed South African song on Spotify in 2020, making the R&B singer a force to be reckoned with for another year. Her single Risky also appears elsewhere in the top 10, making her the only solo artist with two singles appearing in the top 10.

These were the most streamed South African songs on Spotify in 2020

  1. “You’re the One” by Elaine
  2. “eMcimbini (Live)” by Aymos, DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small, Mas Musiq, Myztro, Samthing Soweto
  3. “Tender Love (feat. DJ Maphorisa & Kabza De Small)” by Sha Sha, DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small
  4. “Jerusalema (feat.Nomcebo Zikode)” by Master KG, Nomcebo Zikode
  5. “Risky” by Elaine
  6. “Xola Moya Wam’ (feat. Master KG)” by Master KG, Nomcebo Zikode
  7. “Lorch” by DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small, Kammu Dee, Miano, Semi Tee
  8. “Into Ngawe” by Ami Faku, Sun-El Musician
  9. “Love You Tonight (feat. DJ Maphorisa, Sha Sha & Kabza De Small)” by DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small, Mfr Souls, Sha Sha
  10. “Sandton” by Bontle Smith, DJ Maphorisa, Focalistic, Kabza De Small, Kamo Mphela

We will be dishing out more lists for albums and global hits soon. Keep an eye!
