Worth every listen.
Introducing Four Play, our new weekly playlist series that features four downloadable tracks with a common theme, of the same genre or from the same part of the world. The debut playlist features new music from South Africa, Ghana and Nigeria. Press play.
1. Sarkodie — Megye Wo Girl (Feat. Shatta Wale)
Ghana’s king of rap gets a hand up from Ghana’s controversial king of dancehall on this midtempo track. Bars for the club.
2. JazzZ — Somebody
Nigerian newcomer JazzZ repurposes the instrumental of Drake’s Marvin’s Room for a whole new track, her memorable voice floating across somber drums ever so lightly. The right kind of low-key.
3. Cassper Nyovest — Doc Shebeleza (Remix) [Feat. Talib Kweli]
The biggest African hip hop song of 2014 gets a fitting remix, with rap great Talib Kweli lending a potent verse. Flames.
4. Dynamyt — I Remember
Dynamyt’s earnest debut will work its way through your ears into your heart. Sometimes, simple is best.
