Multi-Platinum DJ R3HAB Collaborates With Mr Eazi and Wafia On Hit Single “I Wanna Run Away”

Published

on

Multi-Platinum DJ R3HAB joins forces with leading African artist Mr Eazi and Gold-certified alt-pop singer/songwriter Wafia for the newest music video to his latest single “I Wanna Run Away,” which was shot in Cape Town earlier this year.

The collaboration exemplifies their diverse capabilities as artists who can cross genre boundaries with sophisticated ease. Drawing on all three artists’ unique sounds, “I Wanna Run Away” combines dance, pop and African influences to create an upbeat, catchy sound that appeals to listeners across the musical spectrum.

Opening with organic instrumental chords and a reggae-inspired vocal hook, the track builds gradually into upbeat melodies that sound like they could be playing from the beach on a tropical island. “I Wanna Run Away” is R3HAB’s first collaboration with Mr Eazi, while seeing the Dutch/Moroccan producer working with Wafia for the second time, after R3HAB’s 2020’s remix of her “Good Things” on Atlantic Records. “I Wanna Run Away” sonically follows the footsteps of “Love In The Morning” on which R3HAB collided with Thutmose and Rema back in 2020, and is a follow-up to his singles from past months, such as “Most People” with Lukas Graham, “Sad boy” with Ava Max and Jonas Blue, and “Runaway” with Sigala and JP Cooper.

“I’ve been a big fan of Mr Eazi for years, and this record has been a long time coming. We began the idea a few years ago and have come back to it many times for revisions and updates. We finally realized the song needed another perspective to land, and that’s when I asked Wafia to join. The pure clarity of her voice complements Eazi’s delivery and brings levels of nuance to the record. We love how it turned out and can’t wait to share it with the world.” – R3HAB

“Sometimes you’re in too deep, and you don’t know what to do besides resorting to desperate measures. But, once you’re through it and have some space, you can channel it over a dance beat and claim your liberation. This song took a long time to figure out, but we solved it and are glad to share it now. Thanks to R3HAB for creating a production that works equally for dancing or for experiencing a full range of emotions, and thanks to Wafia for lending your lovely voice. Listeners, this song is yours now.” – Mr Eazi

“I’ve been a fan of R3HAB for such a long time, and I’m so glad we finally got to put out this song with Mr Eazi. I feel so honored to be hopping on a track with these two legendary artists!” – Wafia

Dutch-Moroccan Multi-Platinum DJ and producer Fadil El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB, has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the better part of the last decade. From his breakthrough remixes for Rihanna, Drake, Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, Lady Gaga, to anthems such as Gold- and Platinum-certified “All Around The World (La La La)” and “Lullaby,” to his collaborations with the likes of Luis Fonsi, Sean Paul, ZAYN, Andy Grammer, Smokepurpp, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, JP Cooper, Sigala, Ava Max, Jonas Blue and more, R3HAB has proven to be one of the most talented and forward-thinking artists in the game, whose work collected over 5B streams to date. In 2016 R3HAB founded his label CYB3RPVNK, which has passed 4B streams across all platforms since its inception. R3HAB himself continues to evolve and diversify his sound by working with a variety of artists around the globe, pushing the boundaries of dance music as he collaborates across genres and languages. In 2020 alone, R3HAB celebrated over 900M Spotify streams. He is currently the most discovered artist on Spotify, one of Spotify’s top 200 most streamed artists across all genres worldwide, and ranked #12 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs chart. With his combination of innate artistry and innovative attitude, in 2021 R3HAB is continuing his journey among electronic music’s elite.

Emeli Sandé Unveils New Song and Music Video, ‘Brighter Days’

Published

on

Internationally-renowned British singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé returns with a brand-new song, the uplifting “Brighter Days,” and its accompanying video, available to stream and download now via Chrysalis Records.

Speaking of the new single, Emeli reveals: “‘Brighter Days’ is inspired by the truth that even in the darkest moments, there is always hope. We might have to dig deeper to feel it, but hope is always there. Staying anchored in hope and faith is our victory and defeat only comes when we lose sight of this power. ‘Brighter Days’ is an affirmation – it’s a reminder of our collective power to make a choice and create our reality.”

“The power of the collective mind is remarkable, and I believe that no matter the external circumstances forced upon us, we have dominion over the mind and spirit. Brighter days are coming. Stepping out of the darkness is within our control. Fear is not ours; pessimism does not belong to us; defeat is not our choice. We choose brighter days, and this song is the voice of hope, faith and love.”

“Brighter Days” is out everywhere now

Brighter Days” follows the singles Look What You’ve Done” and Family” – Emeli’s triumphant first tastes of fresh music in two years, introducing a new era, which she describes as “an ode to resilience, rebirth, and renewal”, as well as recent collaborations with UK rap and grime giants including Bugzy Malone’s ‘Welcome to the Hood’ and Ghetts’ ‘Sonya’, featured on his Mercury Prize-nominated record Conflict of Interest. Other collaborations that span Emeli’s career include Kendrick Lamar, Giggs, Loski, Wretch 32, Wiley, Jools Holland, Nile Rodgers and many more.

Last month saw the release of ‘Acoustic,’ featuring two new, stripped-back versions of “Look What You’ve Done” and “Family,” beautifully showcasing the emotional and honest songwriting she has become known for. ‘Acoustic’ arrived alongside a video for “Look What You’ve Done (Acoustic Version)”, which finds Emeli performing the song solo at the piano, where the self-produced song began to take shape.

Published

on

Perez Musik, the Blema Teasaa  hit maker is back with another beautiful song titled Hewale Lala.
‘Hewale lala’ which mean Song Of Strenght in English is the first Ga song off a 5 track gospel EP titled Delivered by Perez musik.

This single, just like the other songs off the EP is inspired by a series of life experiences and the ultimate realization that life is best lived when one totally submits to the Holy Spirit.

The beauty of the song is expressed in a creative use of the Ga language garnished with an english hook. The song is indeed soothing and inspiring. The sound is different and awakening. It is a “must have” on your gospel Playlist.

From the sound released on this single, worshipers and music listeners should prepare to be dragged into the presence of God because Perez Musik is surely carrying some fresh fire this year.

Perez Recounts in an Instagram post;
“One night, on my way to my studio after a very unexpected rough and tough morning. I started to wonder about the true purpose of life as I felt frustrated on every side. I wanted to give up but suddenly the Holy Spirit ministered this scripture in my heart- “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Isaiah 41:10
I immediately felt this song drop in my spirit. I began to sing the lyrics and melody with so much ease, I felt a positive shift in my physical, emotional and mental state.
It is my heart desire that this song will affirm your faith in Yahweh and restore faith if you have lost it.”

The other titles on the EP are Ayeyi Ndwom, Made for you, Giver of My Life and Tse Ofe(Almighty Father) .

Those doing Asakaa music shouldn’t stop but right now Afrobeats is what has America paying attention

Published

on

Michael ‘Emm’ Acheampong-Boateng, President of Highbridge the Label, has explained that it makes sense for African musicians do push the Afrobeats agenda into the US market, since that is what is hot at the moment.

Afrobeats is not new, but in the US, it is. For example, Pop Smoke made drill music with UK beats, that’s how he was introduced to the market. The plan before he died was to transition to more traditional music for people to enjoy. You saw that in his first album after he passed away. If you are a good businessman, the first thing to remember is that you are a business so you position yourself well in order to be successful. If there’s a market for Afrobeats in America and you’re looking into breaking into the market, then you need to come in with what they want and slowly transition to whatever you are looking to bring and see how the market reacts to that,” he said in an interview with Ameyaw TV.

Watch Full interview below:

Asked whether the Asaaka drill music from Ghana was making similar waves in the US, Emm said it wasn’t the case yet.

“I didn’t see it in the US. If I did, I saw it in the African community in the US. If there was an African party, then that’s where you would see it but if you move from the subset of that population, then it didn’t really travel. Afrobeats however, is traveling outside of the African community. So again, I don’t think rappers doing Asaaka should abandon it. But they should be aware that if they want to get a commercial appeal, they should lean towards Afrobeats. Because with rap, Americans speak English, so if they can’t understand what you’re saying, then it’s a little bit tricky.

Highbridge the Label is an American record label founded by A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Don Q, Quincy “QD” Acheampong and Sambou “Bubba” Camara in 2016, based in New York City.

Vodafone Icons Star Derrick Music Kicks Off Maiden Edition Of Live Lounge

Published

Former Vodafone Icons and MTN Hitmaker contestant Derrick Music has revealed he is a self-taught piano and acoustic guitar player.

The musician who has countless performances and a few singles to his credit made the shocking revelation when he made an appearance on the maiden edition of Live Lounge, a newly introduced segment on growing YouTube channel BTM Afrika.

“Generally I have a passion for music. Anything about music intrigues me. At first, I used to play the grand piano (that was also self-taught). I was playing at dinners, weddings etc but the problem I had was transporting a grand piano (it’s huge) so I contemplated on getting an instrument that is portable and that’s when I settled on the guitar. I took that bold decision and bought the first guitar and it’s been massive since then,” he said.

Derrick Music brought his A-Game to life as he made an appearance on the maiden edition of Live Lounge.

Starting off with an acoustic rendition of his newly released single Kpalanga, the former Vodafone Icons and MTN Hitmaker star quickly transitioned into performing Anadwo by King Promise and other subsequent songs.
