Tanzania: Diamond Platnumz – IYO (feat Focalistic, Mapara A Jazz & Ntosh Gazi)
The boss of the Tanzanian scene turns his ear towards South Africa by inviting the rapper Focalistic, the band Mapara A Jazz and artist Ntosh Gazi on his track “IYO”. Tailored for the clubs, the track and its ultra-energetic video must have pleased many partygoers. One more proof that this summer has been deeply marked by amapiano far beyond South Africa…
United Kingdom: Stefflon Don – Dip (feat. Ms Banks)
August 13th, 2021
The two English artists offer us here a fierce track that only reinforces their ultimate badass aura. On this ultra-percussive instrumental and its middle-eastern accents, Ms Banks’ verse is a real rap lesson, while Stefflon Don’s brings a powerful dancehall imprint.
Nigeria: Rexxie – Frenemies (feat. Oxlade)
August 15th, 2021
In this track taken from the album A True Champion, Oxlade’s clear voice tells us how some friends can change once we reach success. These somber lyrics do not prevent the song from being a real hit, and from making the two artists show their best dance moves throughout the entire video.
South Africa: Kamo Mphela – Thula Thula
August 6th, 2021
The amapiano princess continues her hit streak with “Thula Thula”, a type of song she clearly holds the secret of. The badass attitude the singer gives off in her verses is also felt in this half-gangster, half-comic video where, accompanied by her gang of dancers, she organizes a robbery. “Thula Thula” is taken from the compilation Amapiano Now.
France: Leto – Mozart Capitaine Jackson (Episode 1)
August 11th, 2021
The Parisian rapper flew to Abidjan, capital of francophone African rap, to shoot the video of this undeniable banger. It seems that drill music has become as popular there as elsewhere, given the scenes of thrilled audiences and wild concerts that we see in the visuals. We also distinguish the rappers Cheu-B and Kepler at his side, who are enjoying themselves as much as him.
United Kingdom: NSG – Petite
August 12th, 2021
London’s grooviest boy band blesses us here with a little summer gem. In the visuals of this pretty love song that mixes hip-hop with afrobeats, the six members are staged in a party full of ego and antagonism. Their rivals are jealous of them and the boys enjoy this attention: “To make an entrance we come late to the party“.
United States of America: Chinese Kitty – LIT BITCH (feat. Fivio Foreign & French Montana)
June 25th, 2021
It would be impossible to make this list without a big rap banger, and that is precisely what Chinese Kitty gave us with “LIT BITCH”. Joined by the big names of Fivio Foreign and French Montana, her lyrics are raw and resonate perfectly with this hard-hitting beat. The chorus is a reference to “My Neck, My Back (Lick It)” by rapper Khia, a less gangster classic but just as explicit.
Zimbabwe: Roki – Patati Patata (feat. Koffi Olomide & Rayvanny)
August 4th, 2021
“Patati Patata” is a collaboration that nobody expected. Zimbabwean singer Roki made a big move by inviting Congolese legend Koffi Olomide and Tanzanian young superstar Rayvanny, making the track international and intergenerational. However, it is the two youngest artists who have made the effort to adapt to Koffi’s universe, delivering an irresistible rumba vibe with these visuals.
