Burna Boy with Angélique Kidjo
One of Africa’s music greats, Angélique Kidjo, revealed the coming of a new album, entitled Mother Nature, due June 18 via Universal. The inpending album of original music in seven years, will be her first following 2019’s Celia (a tribute to salsa singer Celia Cruz) and 2018’s reworking of Talking Heads’ Remain In Light.
The album features a slew of cool guests, including Burna Boy, Sampa The Great, EarthGang, Mr. Eazi, Yemi Alade, Salif Keita, Shungudzo, Zeynab, Lionel Loueke, Blue Lab Beats, and Ghetto Boy.
Angélique previously released the Yemi Alade-featuring single “Dignity,” and along with today’s album announcement, she put out “Africa, One Of A Kind” featuring Mr. Eazi and Salif Keita. It’s a lively, polyrhythmic Afrobeat song and a very promising taste of this album. Check out both singles and the tracklist below.
