Afro beats is a music genre that has been on the rise of late. This is as a result of how Nigerian artistes have pushed the art to the international audience.
In this article, we will be looking at Nigerian artistes that have worked with international artistes in 2022.
Here we go:
1. Omah Lay and Justin Bieber
If there’s any duo combination in 2022 that caused a lot of noise, then it has to be Omah and JB. The two linked up on a song titled Attention.
According to Omah Lay, he was the first to send Justin Bieber the beat, and to his surprise, Justin Bieber liked it and decided to record his verse.
The video showed the two artistes dancing near a bonfire thus, vibing to the cool Afro Fusion sound. So far, the song has been doing well on various streaming platforms such as Audiomack and YouTube. Later this year, Omah Lay is expected to drop his album, we can only wish him the best and pray he continues to soar higher.
2. Fireboy and 21 Savage, Blxst
After the massive success of the original and first remix of the ‘Peru’ songs, Fireboy opted to feature top rapper 21 Savage, and Blxst.
Blxst verse on the song was the came after the main chorus and first verse handled by Fireboy.
His verse talked about his desire for his woman to be with him and what he would do if she comes. For 21 Savage, the first three to four lines had him rapping about his rap game and wealth. Then, he switched things up by rapping about ladies and how his girl loves Chanel.
Generally, it was a good song but wasn’t up to the standard of the original song or the remix that had Ed Sheeran in it.
3. Barry Jhay and Kwame Eugene
One of the best songs off his ‘Son of God’ EP, Barry Jhay and Kwame Eugene chemistry in that song is one that is not talked about.
The song had a very good beat that helped the two artistes display their vocal strength. If you have listened to it, you would testify to this fact. Barry Jhay and Kwame Eugene — Right By You is indeed one song you really need on your playlist.
4. Kizz Daniel and Afro B
After the success of his album, it was evident that Kizz Daniel would start getting ready to feature in songs especially of different genres.
The song with Afro B had him record only a verse which he delivered excellently following the beat and the tempo of the melody.
His verse contained lines like: ‘I got my gees every other day every time we com mot we know he we dey handle chicks’.Afro B’s song, ‘Bluffin’ is definitely one to watch out for on the streets.
5. Rema ft. AJ Tracey
Rema takes Afro sound to the world by collaborating with British rapper AJ Tracey on his new single FYN, which stands for Fresh Young Nigga.
The fascinating new hit song is taken from Rema’s soon-to-be-released debut album “Ravers and Roses,” which has been anticipated for over a year.
