This pandemic is helping the world rediscover the joys of casually listening to music. In that spirit, welcome back to Africa Is A Country’s “Weekend Music Break.” Check out the following pan-African selection of tunes from our intern, Myrakel Baker.
1) First up, we have the Liberian artist Eric Geso’s new single “I Hear Something.” The club banger sparked the #IHearSomething challenge. Tag #AIAC and #IHearSomething on your social media to join in on the fun. 2) Ghanian artist Medikal released the music video for his song “Shout” featuring Okese1. Check out Medikal’s new album for a deeper listen. 3) Burna Boy wants us to know we are Africans not because we are born in Africa, but because Africa is born in us in his new record “Wonderful.” 4) Beyonce drops a video for the highly successful Afrobeat song “ALREADY,” featuring Shatta Wale and Major Lazer. 5) Manu WorldStar premieres his latest single “Choko.” I’m happy to see all the love he is receiving from this record. 6) The Nigerian singer Timaya releases an autobiographical song “Born to Win.” It is the motivational record needed for the quarantine blues. 7) You cannot help but catch a vibe to the 2Baba and Wizkid joint “Opo.” The track is an afrobeat/pop song off 2Baba’s new studio album—Warrior. 8) Davido wants to get “Risky” with the ladies on his record featuring Popcaan. 9) Tiwa Savage has got a lot of “Attention” with her single. Her COLORS performance has been trending on twitter throughout the quarantine period. 10) The world megastar Yemi Alade did not disappoint with her new record, “Boyz.” Alade’s record is a perfect way to close out this weekend’s music break, until next time.
