BLACK MOTION FEATURING MSAKI- Marry me (Dance)
Breaking into the scene in the mid-2010s, the Pretorian duo is known for their atmospheric instrumentals with hearty drums and percussions. Their latest chart entry sticks to the
tried and tested formula; vibrant and distinctly African beats. Msaki delivers gentle but prominent vocals on the song, complementing the aesthetic and tempo.
ELANDRE- Dag & Nag (Afrikaans)
The Eastern Cape-born artist, whose full name is Elandré Schwartz, released the new single Dag & Nag on his 25th birthday – preceding a pending 2021 album release that he mentioned in an interview on OFM’s TJR podcast. In the
interview, he also discussed the diversity in his music, his musical inspirations – noting Bruce Springsteen as a heavy influence – as well as his inclination to collaborations. He noted that in his new song he wanted to share his experiences and prosperity over his relatively short but impactful
career. He is armed with great musical talent and a positive attitude which paints a promising future for the Select Music signee.
GERHARD STEYN- Groter As Goliat (Afrikaans)
Gerhardus Pieter Steyn is a tenured South African singer, songwriter, and guitarist with over two decades in the industry under his belt, making his musical debut in the year 2000. With his expansive discography, boasting 11 albums
in the span of 12 years, he adds a fresh single to kick off the spring season with a bang, securing a spot in the iTunes Top 100 South Africa.
MISS PRU FEATURING PA FAKALOICE, BLAQ DIAMOND, MALOME VECTOR & MANNY YACK- uHulumeni (Hip Hop/Rap)
The ever-prolific collaborator, Miss Pru, closes off the month with a track that feels much shorter than its six-minute runtime. PA FAKALOICE, Blaq Diamond, Malome Vector
and Manny Yack all bring unique style and flows in addition to Miss Pru’s patented combination of sleepy background melodies and hard-hitting drums, keeping the song interesting for its entire duration.
NASTY C- Zulu Man With Some Power (Hip Hop/Rap)
After the album announcement in 2019 and the several delays that followed, the selfproclaimed “coolest kid in Africa” has finally released his third studio album Zulu Man With Some Power. The 20-track album is his second big project for the year, following the Zulu mixtape with DJ Whoo Kid that was released in June. It features T.I., Ari Lennox, Tellaman, Rowlene, Lil Gotit, and Lil Keed. The last two artists appear on “Bookoo Bucks”, an early fan favourite on the album.
