Rolling Afropop / Afrobeats 2021

Seeing how established and vital African pop is on ILM (and not only), let's be among the first to start off the new year !
I assume we will have a separate thread for the South African scene(s) and that breastcrawl will curate a Spotify playlist.

L.A.X. - Go Low (from his Nov. album)

Nabozo, Saturday, 2 January 2021 22:26 (nine months ago) link

And because it seems that music does not like frontiers, here's a Nigerian song incorporating amapiano

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FtuXxKikNk
Zinoleesky - Kilofeshe

He's a new guy chaperoned by Naira Marley.

Nabozo, Tuesday, 5 January 2021 19:53 (nine months ago) link

This is a year old but I kinda love it:

Ethic Entertainment feat. Konshens - Figa

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 5 January 2021 20:06 (nine months ago) link

that’s Kenyan gengetone, right? another blind spot there

but yes, one of the big musical stories of last year was amapiano taking root outside of South Africa. watch this blow up further in 2021. in Nigeria homegrown piano is all over the charts right now. lots of producers (including some of the biggest names) are taking a stab at it.

case in point: the biggest song in Nigeria right now:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFX9cruEfoo
Rexxie ft. Mohbad • KPK (Ko Por Ke)

another big one besides the Zinoleesky, that’s providing Phyno with his biggest hit in ages:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YrjQz_zncY
DJ Kaywise ft. Phyno • High Way

this is not exactly a smash, but it should be - I love it to pieces, such a sticky hook!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnN1JeKowTU
Eltee Skhillz ft. Niniola • Lucy (Remix)

(this one is actually produced by a SA producer, Eternal Africa, who works with Naija artists as well)

Did we do Tanzapiano yet?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hIka4cx_-U
Rayvanny ft. Diamond Platnumz • Woza

can’t wait for the “Jerusalema”-biting video!

(actually we did: I posted Marioo’s “Mama Amina” with Sho Madjozi & Bontle Smith on the Amapiano thread last month, but “Woza” is more interesting to me because the amapiano is incorporated in the bongo flava here)

...for contrast, some of that nu classic (convential?) Naija “afrobeats” sound:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dE1mygXWOE
Runtown • If E Happen For Lagos

...and this, from Ghana:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zOz0R4z_9A
Darkovibes • Crazy People

(from his latest EP The Cornerstone. I nominated his Kpanlogo album from last spring for the EOY, it’s very groovyvibeywavey)

...and oh yeah, in 2021 afropop will go even more global:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gijs__G364g
Mr Eazi ft. J Balvin • Lento (prod. Killertunes)

so excuse me for being on a roll, *BUT*:

that L.A.X track Nabozo posted is a great example of how thoroughly amapiano has permeated Naijapop in just one year. it’s not overt amapiano, like the Zinoleesky, Rexxie and Kaywise tracks, but it’s unthinkable without it.
(the same can probably be said about that Darkovibes track, although it’s possible I’m hearing things)

I’m constantly updating my (quite possibly unique) Spotify playlist for tracking and tracing amapiano’s influence on (with a few exceptions, so far) West African pop. I’m now at 99 tracks, but I’m sure I will come across many more, it’s become hard to keep up:

🇳🇬🇬🇭🇿🇦NAIghaPIANO🎹🎹

(my criterium is: if I feel the track wouldn’t have sounded like it does without amapiano I’m including it. it’s likely not everyone will agree with all of my choices. I welcome comments and suggestions!)

Nabozodamus:

I assume we will have a separate thread for the South African scene(s)


yes, it’s in the works

and that breastcrawl will curate a Spotify playlist.


yes, as soon as we’ll have a decent number of posted tracks

Very curious in the new year abt the scene from Angola

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Tuesday, 5 January 2021 22:41 (nine months ago) link

have you heard any good stuff from there recently? I’d be very curious to hear them

them, it...

I did a dive midway last year and found some stuff I dug, need to do a follow up, there was def a distinct sound

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVkpPRu77Js

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 00:52 (nine months ago) link

Ah cool, that’s the track that came up last year in our convo about Angolan kuduro and “Afro House” in the Dance Music Nobody Talks About thread.

For the record, we’re talking about:
DJ Malvado & Nelo Paim ft. DJ Habias & Nad Beatz • Amingas

🔻🔻Could everyone please label the tracks they are posting?
It makes it so much easier to search for something, and as with all internet links, there is every chance these YouTubes (or Soundclouds or whatever the case may be) will become broken at some point (in a couple of years perhaps, or you know, next week, it happens all the time), and then we won’t have anything left to go on.🔺🔺

Nao ft. Adekunle Gold • Antidote (produced by Sarz)

(thanking ufo for the alert)

(hope to be able to put up the Rolling SA thread tomorrow btw)

No hits, but a few things that caught my attention lately from some "minor" artists:
- IcePrince feat Tekno - Make Up Your Mind. It's no "One Leg Up" but decent single from last year, I like the saxophone.
- Mmzy - Wildin. New guy, not fully convinced by Animal despite the interesting somber tone / sax, but I like Wildin.
- Barry Jhay - O Ga Ra. This is from 2018, I had never heard of the guy. Warm stuff, I like that flute.
- Ecool - Sobente. Nothing particular, a little slow, but competent.

The DJ Spinall album (Grace) is noteworthy if you're looking for a consistent set of songs (and you don't think albums are overrated)

Ok I'll post something officially
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngZIp43W3ws
Runtown - If E Happen for Lagos

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtqzVHK-MfM
DJ Tunez & Olamide - Require (more Amanaija)

Nabozo, Tuesday, 19 January 2021 21:04 (eight months ago) link

Oops, I checked the whole 2020 thread and forgot to check here: Runtown already posted :/ O Ga Ra actually late 2019, not 2018.

okay so i've been to busy to nom this year but will try to put in a ballot on the train home tomorrow afternoon. what have you guys been voting for so far?

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:17 (eight months ago) link

*too

Too busy to spell, it seems

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:17 (eight months ago) link

(i feel like this is the tread where all the people i have similar tastes with tend to come together, so feel free to mention all genres)

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:19 (eight months ago) link

honestly I'm trying to take the poll less seriously this year -- ilm massive isn't what it once was and that's fine, I don't need to get upset about it. But vote for Koffee's "Lockdown" and you'll make me happy longneck :)

rob, Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:26 (eight months ago) link

I will!
Wait... so no one nom'd any of the Scorpion Kings albums? Just the Kabza solo? No vote splitting then, I guess. Lol.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:29 (eight months ago) link

Trying to free up some time to post more music this year. ilm massive may not be what it used to be (mea culpa), but you guys are still trustworthy when it comes to new music.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:32 (eight months ago) link

ha to be clear, that def wasn't aimed at anyone round here! I still get a ton of enjoyment and value out of the board, just less so the eoy poll than times past

rob, Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:44 (eight months ago) link

Tru dat

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:48 (eight months ago) link

A lot of really great stuff this year - even quite a few albums(!) - but i don’t expect much of it to enter the list. I’m listening to breastcrawl’s nom’d SA tracks right now and am amazed at how many great tracks I’ve missed even though I’ve been listening to SA stuff all year.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 21 January 2021 23:53 (eight months ago) link

so otm -- it was an overwhelmingly abundant year and I can't pretend I heard much more than a fraction. weirdly I feel like albums is where there might be some afropop consensus? iirc I voted for Wizkid, Tiwa, Amaarae, and Azana...might be forgetting something else too. I nommed the uneven Burna but can't remember if I had room for it

rob, Friday, 22 January 2021 00:03 (eight months ago) link

I prefer the Davido to the Burna tbh but not sure if it was nom’d? Didn’t see Niniola either? Oh well. Will vote for Wiz and Tiwa, the best of the bunch.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Friday, 22 January 2021 00:13 (eight months ago) link

hm might be worth double checking the Davido, there was def some enthusiasm for that. also I didn't care for it, but I would assume the Fireboy DML was nominated

rob, Friday, 22 January 2021 00:16 (eight months ago) link

guys, you’re catching me at a bad time...

sorry breastcrawl, it's cuz I don't have spotify

rob, Friday, 22 January 2021 00:32 (eight months ago) link

i voted for the wizkid, azana, fireboy and tiwa albums, and simmy ("ngihamba nawe") and busiswa in tracks

ufo, Friday, 22 January 2021 00:34 (eight months ago) link

Haven’t listened to the Azana album until now but it deserves my vote. Gorgeous stuff.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Friday, 22 January 2021 00:47 (eight months ago) link

ok if the poll motivated you to listen to that for the first time, then I love poll

rob, Friday, 22 January 2021 14:21 (eight months ago) link

If memory serves correctly I voted for 4 afropop albums and 4 tracks, but guess I should avoid naming which ones for spoiler purposes.

Omah Lay is a good example of the plateau problem I had with 2020 in general: so much sustained quality that I struggled to pick highlights from genres or even artists

really hope it places, it was my favourite Omah song so far, but I fear he is another one who might (have) be(en) vote-splitted away

apols for posting before catching up (though I did listen to "Supersonic" and liked it), just wanted to post this:

Ajebo Hustlers x Omah Lay - "Pronto"

rob, Tuesday, 4 May 2021 20:50 (five months ago) link

ok just put "Supersonic" on again and it's wow good. I must have had the volume on too low the first time: there's a ton of wild stuff going on in the mix

rob, Tuesday, 4 May 2021 20:54 (five months ago) link

for further listening: Le Mav and Tay Iwar made an 8-track mini album called Gold together in 2019 and it’s super smooth and wavy.

here's some Kenyapiano:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LrBiIPshog
Movaz Dance Kenya (Movaz Warombosaji Nation) • Nditni

their first track from late last year, "Danger Dinji", was straight amapiano, this follow-up has more of a gengetone inflection

(their name is kinda confusing: Spotify has both the artist and label as "Movaz Dance Kenya". the artwork and YouTube have the artist name as Movaz (Warombosaji Nation). think they originated as a dance crew called, yes... Movaz)

Just checking out Laycon's second album '...Shall We Begin...'

Very entertaining and diverse Naija-pop with a clear US hip-hop influence (or is that just the Kanye-esque 'God Body'?). Loads of guests on here too: Teni, Joeboy, Terri and others.

'Wagwan' is my favourite so far:

What do you all think of this Juls x Projexx x Tay Iwer tune "Chance"?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ea7WUPHorp4

(video is the censored version, fyi)

I can't decide if this is lovely and lush or over-refrigerated, and there's a part where Iwer sounds like he's interpolating "Strawberry Letter 23" that I find distracting. Given the lineup it's kind of begging for a remix with Wizkid!

rob, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 12:56 (five months ago) link

"Wagwan" is cool, sound a lot like the Ghanaian stuff I first heard on the board in 2011 or so (not a diss)

rob, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 13:01 (five months ago) link

laycon album is good, thanks for sharing. the teni-featuring "want you back" has sweeping davido vibes

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 15:53 (five months ago) link

“Chance” is an obvious attempt to catch lightning in a bottle twice, but it totally lacks “True Love”s melodic glory - the “Strawberry Letter 23” interpolation only serves to highlight that.

Long Tall Arsetee & the Shaker Intros (breastcrawl), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 20:10 (five months ago) link

yeah I think you're right, ultimately disappointing

I was going to say some gqom song but all the songs are listed viborg :)
Omunye is sort of the peak hit for these guys (Distruction Boyz). Dlala Thukzin is the slim Dlala. This year he did Phuze.
Since we haven't posted the full version of the remix:

A friend named her child Naledi. I love that name (means star in Pedi).

That is a beautiful name.

But thank you, that was stupid of me. I listened to it live and failed to check the description afterwards. It wouldn’t be a normal week for me on ILM unless I posted something really dumb. (Also realized after posting it might be more suited to the S.A. thread sorry.)

That remix is strong stuff for sure!
