Nasty C, Prince Kaybee & More on Coming 2 America Soundtrack

‘Rhythms of Zamunda’ arrives.

Published

on

On Thursday, Def Jam Africa unveiled Rhythms of Zamunda, the compilation soundtrack album to accompany the release of Coming 2 America, which drops tomorrow on Amazon Prime Video.


To help tell the story, music by many African acts is included in the new movie. In addition to that, a compilation that mirrors some of the themes of Coming 2 America will be released by Def Jam Africa, a division of the Universal Music Group.

From amapiano to zouglou-inspired songs, Rhythms of Zamunda is a 16-track body of work that traverses Western, Eastern and Southern African soundscapes to connect with Northern America and the rest of the globe.

It features, amongst a host of others, a myriad of genres introduced by the likes of Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage and Tekno, the late DJ Arafat from Côte d’Ivoire, South Africa’s Prince Kaybee and Msaki as well as Fally Ipupa from the Democratic Republic of Congo.


The lead single from Rhythms of Zamunda is ‘Black & White’ by South Africa’s wordsmith and wunderkind Nasty C. On it, the hip hop artist features American soul singer, Ari Lennox and gives the listener a glimpse into the possibilities of love when two people stop complicating it. It’s a universally relatable perspective and one that Nasty C is elated to share with the world.

“I am honoured to be representing Africa in such a monumental moment, celebrating the best of black creatives,” he said about the compilation.

Creativity is at the core of Diamond Platnumz’s Hallelujah featuring Morgan Heritage. The Tanzanian bongo flava crooner considers himself blessed to contribute to African artists being seen as imaginative, diverse and world-class. He said: “I’m so excited because there is great chemistry between our music and Coming 2 America.”

The compilation is felicitous. Togolese musos, Toofan, whose song, Ye Mama, is another standout track believe “associating African artists with the movie sequel over 30 years later is a symbol of the increasingly important place that African music holds globally. It’s about time African inspirations take on the world stage.”

DUNE at a Glance: Early Reviews and First Look at the Epic Fantasy

Let’s go to the desert planet.

Published

on

The big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel of the same title, Dune is easily one of the year’s most drooled over cinema arrivals.

Between the much talked about trailer, the splashy promotional drive with Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya turning heads in chic designer ‘fits, and the lauded substance of its bestselling source material, the movie has garnered enough of a buzz to justify its exclusive theatre release amid a cinema landscape plagued by a global pandemic.

The scope is too massive. The director, Denis Villeneuve (who also gave us Blade Runner 2049) doesn’t want the initial experience to be contained in a frame that would neutralise the film’s potential to fully mesmerise. The film is created to be a wonder.

The snippet has inspired a fever with an exciting peek into the stellar performances and cinematic brilliance in utopian desert planet scapes. Still looming for populations ahead of its December premiere, early reviews are trickling in with Variety describing the movie as “a majestically somber and grand-scale sci-fi trance-out”. They do, however, also lament storytelling failures of this epic fantasy to lead anywhere hoped.

The mythic follows the life of Paul Atreides, gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people.

As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive. Timothée Chalamet leads a big cast featuring Rebecca Ferguson,  Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley, Chang Chen and amongst others Zendaya.

Queenpins Trailer, Cast, Release Dates and More

In cinemas September 24th.

Published

on

Inspired by a true story, Queenpins is an outrageous comedy about a bored and frustrated suburban homemaker, Connie Kaminski (Kristen Bell) and her best pal JoJo Johnson (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), a vlogger with dreams, who turn a hobby into a multi-million dollar counterfeit coupon caper.

THE PLOT

It all starts when Connie discovers she can take control of her life – and save piles of cash – by ensuring she gets a discount for everything at her local supermarket. After firing off a letter to the conglomerate behind a cereal that has gone stale and receiving an apology along with dozens of freebies, Connie and JoJo hatch an illegal coupon club scheme that sees them scam millions from mega-corporations and deliver deals to legions of fellow coupon clippers.

Their brainstorm escalates into a money making machine involving a warehouse in Mexico that prints all coupons, a brilliant cyber-thief (Bebe Rexha), a massive stash house, and an elaborate money laundering system involving a fleet of Lamborghinis, a cache of high-powered weapons, and a cadre of fearsome militia men. Meanwhile, a hapless Loss Prevention Officer Ken Miller (Paul Walter Hauser) at a supermarket chain victimized by the two women joins forces with a determined U.S. Postal Inspector Simon Kilmurry (Vince Vaughn) in hot pursuit of these newly minted “Queenpins” of pink-collar crime.

DIRECTOR:

A Giant Asteroid Could Destroy Earth & Hollywood A-Listers on ‘Don’t Look Up’

The budget, chile.

Published

on

Don’t Look Up packs a high-powered cast bursting with Hollywood’s biggest names, and a punch.

We are talking about giant budget because the Netflix dark comedy, coming out on December 24th, features a bunch of Oscar winners and the highest paid actors as they avoid a looming asteroid that will destroy the earth. We’re going to toast to Kid Cudi and Arianna Grande for getting in there.

Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. The problem — it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. Turns out warning mankind about a planet-killer the size of Mount Everest is an inconvenient fact to navigate.

With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of an  indifferent  President Orlean (Meryl Streep) and her sycophantic son and Chief of Staff, Jason (Jonah Hill), to the airwaves of The Daily Rip, an upbeat morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry). With only six months until the comet makes impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and gaining the attention of the social media obsessed public before it’s too late proves shockingly comical — what will it take to get the world to just look up?!

Written and directed by Adam McKay, the film also stars Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi), Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis and Tomer Sisley.

Don’t Look Up arrives on Netflix on 24 December 2021.
