MUSIC BREAK / “THE BLACK ATLANTIC”?

Is this the 21st century Black Atlantic (minus the intellectualism or the race politics)? Yes it is Fally Ipupa, the Congolese superstar, and R&B singer, Olivia, who used to be on rapper 50 Cent’s G-Unit label. Bling, fantasy, and immigrant culture in Europe and American R&B meet.
