What’s better than two of your favourite music artists, coming together to create a song? When UK and US artists are in the studio together, you just know they’re creating something magical. There’s been numerous photos lurking around on social media of our homegrown heroes pictured with our distant American cousins across the pond – 2019 has some exciting music collaborations in store for us this year.
Kelly Rowland & Ray Blk:
Stormzy & H.E.R
Afro B & Wyclef Jean
Afro B is a DJ turned Afrobeats hero from Ivory Coast and is rapidly taking over the world continent by continent. There’s no doubt Afro B’s put UK Afrobeat artists on the map, thanks to his deeply penetrating hits like Melanin and of course the iconic Drogba (Joanna). Did you really listen to Drogba (Joanna) if you didn’t film a snap for the culture? Even global stars like Ashanti have got involved – (who can blame her? We’ll never get tired of seeing the epic #DrogbaChallenge videos.
Since Afro B has been receiving all of this much deserved buzz, we saw an exchange between Wyclef Jean and Afro B which looks like something epic might be cooking between them two.
