Stonebwoy is the guest artiste on “London Love” Remix by Weslee and P2J

Published

on

London-based Nigerian producer P2J has remixed the track “London Love,” by New York duo Weslee. Joined by the king of Afro-dancehall, Stonebwoy, this feels like one last slice of summer. This P2J remix of “London Love” trades in the soulful vibes of the original for similarly smooth Afrobeat accents.

P2J’s sun-kissed remix for ‘London Love’ sees Stonebwoy, the Ghanaian superstar, adding his Afro-Dancehall flavours to this latest version. It already has the makings of a heady hit. And for good reason: P2J is convinced that Afrobeats has been steadily infiltrating the U.S. airwaves for the past few years. Davido, Burna boy, Wizkid and of course, Stonebwoy … it’s likely most will have heard their music thumping out of car speakers this summer, bringing the uplifting vibes you want when the sun is out.

For a few years, he was one of the key producers for artists looking to add an Afrobeats edge to their music. “London Love” is one such example, where Stonebwoy’s powerful voice combines with the hypnotic sounds of Weslee’s Emma, bringing new energy to the original track.

Stonebwoy dropped his 4th album earlier this year, which featured the likes of Keri Hlson, Alicai Harley and Nasty C. His latest collaboration on this remix reflects his pan-African dream, though he has no plans to leave Ghana anytime soon.

Stonebwoy adds a gleaming verse on Wauve’s Afrobeats inspired jam – “Pamela” [WATCH VIDEO]

Published

Tomorrow, October 23, North London producer and artist Wauve, aka Robeal Yohannes, will release his debut EP Shade. Although he describes himself as a producer first and a singer a distant second, if the EP’s new single “Pamela”, which features Afrobeats stars ZieZie and Stonebwoy is anything to go by, we can’t help but feel like he’s being a bit hard on himself. Stream song here: https://wauve.lnk.to/ShadeEPIN

Having found a deeper connection to his Eritrean roots as he’s grown up, Wauve’s music is leaning more and more into that East African influence, taking pentatonic scales and homegrown rhythms and blending them into the traditionally West African Afrobeats sound. Add to that a touch of the R&B and trap that first inspired him to make music and the result is light and breezy sound that takes Afrobeats into new territories that should probably be explored a bit more.

Hit play at the top to see Wauve, ZieZie and Stonebwoy cut loose in the barbers while they try to catch the attention of the titular heroine.

MORE OF YOU/ Emeli Sandé Releases An Infectious Musical Collaboration With Stonebwoy [WATCH VIDEO]

Published

on

Multiple BRIT Award winner Emeli Sandé today releases new song More of You – an infectious and unique musical collaboration with Ghanaian recording artiste Stonebwoy and British producer/songwriter Nana Rogues. Stream audio here: https://slinky.to/MoreOfYou

Released on new Mancunian record label Sengge Zangbo, the irresistible track plays out as a timeless ode to love, superbly capturing the sacred moment of falling head over heels for someone you’ve waited your whole life to meet.

Written by Sandé following an inspired meeting with Nana Rogues whilst out in LA, the songs heavenly melodies, captivating energy and glorious influence of new wave, afro soul fuse together to create an uplifting anthem that the whole world so desperately needs to hear.

“I was falling in love…” Emeli says candidly when explaining the origins and sentiment behind the track. “And I wanted to sum up the feeling that creeps up on you and catches you by surprise.”

“First the feelings are subtle, a strange sensation of missing someone you consider a friend which starts to build. In this song I wanted to capture the crossover moment when you realise the subtle feelings you once perhaps denied have now been realised into something undeniable you want to shout from the rooftops. You can’t get enough, you can’t share their love and want the whole world to know how beautiful they are to you.”

“’More of You’ is a big record!” Stonebwoy adds. “It’s been amazing connecting with the legendary Emeli, via my brother Nana Rogues… this is a great cultural moment with three super-sonic creatives on one masterpiece.”

DJ Cuppy releases “KARMA” Featuring Stonebwoy advancing her debut album

Published

on

We’re in the final build-up stages for DJ Cuppy’s much-anticipated debut album, ‘Original Copy‘. Having convoked an incredible line-up of featured talent – which includes Rema (who appeared on the lead single, “Jollof On The Jet” alongside Tanzania’s Rayvanny), Darko, Ms Banks, Wyclef Jean, and Teni (who we haven’t heard from in way too long) – Cuppy has more than piqued the interest of even her critics, and her promotional singles only serve to prove that she could possibly do well as an artist in her own right.

Today, following up “Jollof On The Jet”, is a Stonebwoy-assisted number, “Karma”. Stonebwoy takes a hold of this super uplifting record, not only opening the track with a class performance, but also trailing Cuppy through her chorus as the two harmonise over the repetitive hook. With Cuppy taking on some of the Ghanaian reggae singer’s patois inflections, these two are a strong match, which ties in perfectly with the loved-up topic of the song.

Both Stonebwoy and DJ Cuppy are looking to convince their respective lovers (whom I’m not unconvinced might be each other) that they’re the one for them. Stonebwoy begins his campaign by bragging about himself, in a bid to prove he’s worth this cool girl’s time, singing yet another COVID-19 reference (we’ll be hearing about coro in songs for years to come): “virus can’t catch me now see my software it be up to date“.

DJ Cuppy finally enters onto the track with her pre-chorus, “Fine fine baby I no go fit deny na you day craze me”, before she goes on to proclaim, dutifully accompanied by Stonebwoy, that she is her lovers’ good karma.

The positive repercussion of Karma are hardly ever explored in love. If what goes around comes around, then good loving will come to those who do good, right? Sounds like facts, but unfortunately when it comes to matters of the heart, Alicia Keys’ ’03 “Karma” typifies our approach to karmic references in music: bitter ballads passionately narrating how the heartbreakers have theirs coming.

Well Cuppy isn’t here for any negativity. She is bringing a refreshingly high-spirited outlook to the subject of karma in love, and it’s the most fitting trope reversal you’d expect from the smiley pink-haired TL comedian.
