Afrobeats queen Tiwa Savage serves up a taste of ‘Sugarcane’ on her brand new EP.
A huge star on the African continent with hits such as ‘Kele Kele’ and ‘Love Me,’ the Mavin Music wonder also attracted global attention after crafting tracks for the likes of Monica and Fantasia.
That multi-faceted appeal attracted JAY-Z’s Roc Nation, who signed a management deal with Nigeria’s “Doro Diva” last year.
Steadily building a name for herself on a global scale, Savage will be releasing a new album next year.
To whet appetites though, she’s released this project. Speaking on it, she said:
“I actually never planned to release anything before my official album drops next year so this is a surprise for my fans. I have been in such a great space in the studio and I’ve been creating so much music so it felt right to put out this project. The title is Sugar cane because the music sounded different and sweet to me. With Afrobeats music, I can’t explain it in words you just have to listen and experience the magic.”
Take a listen to the set, which also features Wiz Kid, below…
A decent slice of Afro-Spice.
That said, we’re eager to hear the truest fruits of her new situation over at the Roc.
With cuts such as ‘Without My Heart’ and ‘Kele,’ she had the right formula to stir up excitement on home-soil and beyond. Now it’s time to grow that into something compelling enough to catch the global audience.
We’re rooting for her. Are you?
