Following the release of his highly-anticipated fifth studio album GRACE (via TheCAPMusic) and a run of dynamic singles including ‘Everytime’ featuring Kranium, his collaboration with Afrobeats heavyweights Tiwa Savage and Wizkid on ‘Dis Love’ and the remix for his hit single ‘Sere’ ft Fireboy DML with additional vocals from the triple-Grammy Award nominated US alt-R&B singer, rapper and songwriter 6lack, the award winning DJ, producer and songwriter SPINALL has returned with the video for his latest single ‘Jabole’ ft Oxlade and Ycee.
“Ma Je Ko Jabole” is a street slang in Yoruba that is meant to encourage women to keep their swag on at all times. Directed by Dalia Dias, the video sees Spinall, Oxlade and Ycee accompanied by an array of beautiful and powerful women exuding their own unique style and confidence.
Spinall shares: “I was working on this sound when Oxlade walked into the studio and he fell in love with it and laid the hook. I rang the coolest guy ever – Ycee who went on to lace the record with his slick bars.”
Currently riding the massive waves he has been creating with GRACE, released in December, amassing over 100 million streams across all platforms and earning widespread acclaim from a slew of outlets with Clash describing it as a ‘symbolic record in more ways than one’, he continues to push the scene forward to the world with innovative concepts and collaborative efforts and with even more new visuals and music to come throughout the year, Spinall is set to continue his journey as one of music’s brightest stars in 2021 and for many more years to come.
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.
Following his debut appearance on the blog with single, ‘The Chase’, singer/songwriter CREDLE drops the official music video for single, an instant likable deep soulful house number which chronicles his quest to be with the one. Check it out below…
