Sarkodie – JAMZ
Afrobeats, R&B, Amapiano, and tropical pop are among the elements that the renowned Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie lets loose on his 2022 album JAMZ, a 10-track-list body of work.
“It’s influenced by the new wave of Afrobeats and the sounds coming out of Africa,” Sarkodie explained in an interview with Apple Music.
“When the album started being recorded, I realized these are back-to-back, commercially good, playlist-type records—so this project combines all sorts of jams in one.”
Celebrating the good things in life through his trademark flows, the Tema-native taps Black Sherif, Lojay, King Promise, Kranium, Cina Soul, Oxlade, BNXN, Inkboy, and Joeboy to layer these tracks with balmy hooks and infectious melodies.
Wendy Shay – Enigma
Wendy Shay creates a captivating musical work that explores the theme of a captivating love story in Enigma. Following the increasing popularity of her precursory release, “Heaven,” the seventh single housed under this project, the Ghanaian singer releases a seven-track extended play. In the seven tracks of “Enigma,” Wendy Shay explores multiple aspects of a love tale without any help or additional features.
