As we self-isolate and watch days go by, most of us have accepted the new normal in these trying times. Wearing a mask, sanitizing, social distancing and not touching our faces is top of the agenda but where is time running to? Can you believe the month is nearly done?!
Check out some brand new heat that you could add to your playlist this month.
Sauti Sol – Insecure
Gearing up for their first major-label release, ‘Midnight Train’, Sauti Sol just released their second instant gratification from the forthcoming album. The jam weaves between the perspectives of two lovers, each dealing with their own insecurities. Fusing Swahili into the melodic song’s lyrics, and bridge, Sauti Sol addresses the anxieties of letting your guard down for the person you love. Check out the hit single below.
Sanaipei Tande – Mdaka Mdakiwa
Legendary songstress Sanaipei is giving us constant content and lacy visuals to ogle upon and we are loving it. ‘Mdaka Mdakiwa’ is a Swahili ballad that flips the tables and speaks about ladies taking control of the dating scene. The singer suggests approaching things from a different and newer perspective. An out of the box kind of thinking where a lady can make her intentions known to a rather conservative man who reciprocates her feelings yet without emasculating him. Check out the visuals below.
The Decimators – 2 By 3 (Mbekse)
The Decimators are the epitome of making fun music. You gotta admire their style of music that builds from Gengetone with a mature touch. Beats produced by Musyoka and delivery by the boys’ Brian Nadra, BonEye, Konkodi and Khuhani, this is club music from the jump. This record helps you learn a few Sheng phrases, learn a dance and inspire you to try rapping.
