With summer around the corner, and quarantines being lifted everywhere, the world is in need of celebration – of survival, of freedom, and of course, love. That’s exactly what Yemi Alade has given us in the form of a brand new song for lovers of music, and lovers of love.
For Afrobeats fans, the wait is over. The queen, who is not only the number one female Afrobeats artist, but also the artist with the most views of all time on YouTube and VEVO (in that same category), has dropped a musical morsel with a highly anticipated single, “My Man.” With over 100 million views, making her the most viewed female Afrobeats artist ever, Yemi is the queen and her royalty shows. With number one hits like, “Johnny,” and her feature on Beyoncé’s album The Lion King: The Gift, her style and music mastery takes Afrobeats cross continental with collaborations from artists globally.
“My Man” is musical treat. A combination of Afrobeats and the hallmark of the reggae sound – it is a cross continental collaboration between Alade, featuring Jamaican dancehall singer Kranium of the hit “Nobody Has To Know.” Alade brings royalty to the new track, blending the signature Afrobeats style of “propulsive” rhythmic jazz with the “mid-tempo” Jamaican reggae sounds of the “melodic heart beat rhythm.”
Her highly anticipated single, and her first drop of the year, “My Man,” is out now. Released on April 8, it is described as a pre-summer banger to set the tone of all the love vibes that are sure to spread in this post-pandemic world.
