Sauti Sol is one group that have their eyes fixed on the top prize. The group promised to release a single every month for the next 8 months, and we have had 2 bangers in the bag already. The compositions are a fusion of neo-pop vibes & rich African sounds that speak truth to what love and life in Africa is.
Just to recap, Melanin which featured Patoranking was a smash hit, Girl Next Door featuring Tiwa Savage caused a ruckus and now we have another one.
Very apt on the release date, the boy band has teamed up with Nigerian versatile dancehall ace, Burna Boy to drop a single for the lovers, titled, ‘African Star’. This beautiful afro-pop ballad is heavy on the guitar instrumentation, lending the voices an upper hand, which perfectly blends with the melodies.
The track speaks about the beauty of an African woman, very vivid in description and the video has that African Melanin theme scattered all over, appreciating the African woman. Burna Boy switches up his usual Patois lingo and mellows down on his verse adding vibes to it.
The track is co-written by Burna boy, produced by sauti sol and mixed-mastered by Supersonic Africa, this song is simply infectious and will easily garner traction Africa and beyond.
