A vitalising release from the West African Blaq Jerzee as he meets the Eastern side once again for the ground-breaking upcoming album ‘East Meets West’. Teaming up with Tanzanian hit maker Blackbeat, it’s a relaxing and emotionally rich track assisting the build-up to the long-awaited project.
Previously a top producer in the scene, Blaq Jerzee has switched roles displaying his astonishing talent as a front man and vocalist. As this album is accumulating, we recently were gifted the release of ‘Sokoma’ and ‘Falling for you’, which has achieved 2 million streams on Spotify alone. Gaining recognition across editorial playlists such as ‘African Heat’.
With the switch to artist, Blaq Jerzee is collaborating with chief beatmaker Blackbeat for ‘6am’. A clear display of the East meeting the West, Blackbeat from Tanzania brings his native and trademark ‘Bongo Flava’ sound to the ‘Afrobeat’ sound of the West. This hybrid is what the album is all about and a truly pioneering step for the scene.
Lush on the ears, ‘6am’ has lots of movement whilst also remaining effortless and seductive. An eclectic arrangement of sounds and instruments, sophisticated saxophones and dreamy synthetic melodies. Combined with Blaq Jerzee’s smooth and signature vocals that are entirely cohesive with the summery track.
