Blackway’s ‘Heavyweight’ selected for 2020 NFL song of the season

Published

on

Singer/songwriter Blackway’s single “Heavyweight” was selected as the first track for the 2020 NFL Songs of the Season series. “Heavyweight” debuted during ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast featuring the Los Angeles Chargers at the New Orleans Saints, and was featured across pre-game and in-game broadcasts. The song will also be featured in-game during tonight’s Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans broadcast on CBS. Listen on Tidal 

Blackway wrote and produced “Heavyweight” this year, specifically for Inspire Change and the Songs of the Season series. His acclaimed song “What’s Up Danger,” was featured on the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” grew up between New York City and Ghana, and draws inspiration from the two cultures in his music.

Songs of the Season highlights superstars and emerging recording artists of all genres, incorporating their music into game broadcasts throughout the 2020 season. Revenue generated from Songs of the Season will benefit organizations supported by Inspire Change, the NFL’s social justice initiative focused on reducing barriers to opportunity in four priority areas: education, economic advancement, police and community relations, and criminal justice reform.

“I like to make music that motivates people. My fans tell me those types of songs make them feel like a superhero,” said Blackway. “I wanted to bring that same energy when I got the opportunity to work on this song for the NFL. I feel like athletes are the closest thing we see to superheroes and being able to give back through my music with Inspire Change makes me feel like one, too.”

“The NFL is excited to launch the second year of Songs of the Season with Blackway,” said Anna Isaacson, NFL Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility. “We hope the series will help raise awareness for social injustices and provide resources to organizations working to reduce barriers to opportunity in our communities.”

Songs of the Season debuted during the 2019-2020 season and included artists such as Royce Da 5’9″, Lecrae, and SASH. The series showcases musicians that will create and deliver a song to be integrated in all NFL promotions each month during the season.

Published

Hip-hop is one of the most loved musical genres in the world and Ghana is no exception to this rule and as the music keeps evolving, so do the creative artists behind the songs. Dedebah is one of the first names that come to mind when the topic in discussion is “Ghanaian Female Rappers”. Dedebah is a very versatile rapper who does not shy away from any challenge. Her sound has gained massive recognition from top blogs and major industry players including hip-hop heavyweights Sarkodie, Medikal, amongst others.

Dedebah is at the pinnacle of her career where she deems it a necessity to give her fans a full body project instead of the occasional singles. Last year she took to social media to announce her maiden EP dubbed “Bosompemaa”. The anticipation for this project has gone through the roof with fans being eager to get their hands on this EP. The African Rap Diva decided to stop fans from lingering anymore by putting out the first major single off the “Bosompemaa EP” titled “Have Fun With It”.

“Have Fun With It” is a groovy hip-hop song with a very catchy and melodic hook. In the first verse she shows off her lyrical prowess. She can be heard saying in local dialect twi “Bosompemaa, mey3 ohemaa” which is simply to remind the listener of the Queen that she is, with no other person being at par with her. The song is produced by Riddim Boss and the video was shot by Director Banitchi.

Stream and enjoy !!

“Have Fun With It” is available on all major digital music stores via this link https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/dedebah/have-fun-with-it
