Afrobeats has become one of the biggest genres out of Africa. Originating from Nigeria, the genre has made a huge mark in both the country, the African continent and all over the work. Thanks to the contribution of the genre’s biggest artists, Afrobeats has become a formidable force in the world.
It has taken up space in the airwaves, and also become known in various parts of the world where it was never really popular. It has influenced music released by artists all over the world. This is obviously the reason why some recent global hits sound like they took pages off its book.
Nigerian singers, Davido, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, and more are credited to have taken the sound all over the world. A while back, Wizkid added some spice to Drake’s global hit, “One Dance” and Davido took over American radio with “Fall”.
Tiwa Savage has also been impressive getting global mentions for her album, “49-99” inspired by the late Fela Kuti. A few other artists have also represented the genre all over the world including Fireboy, Reekado Banks, and Afro Trap singer, Rema who dropped the impressive “Lady” to worldwide acclaim.
However, Afrobeats soared to greater heights following the release of Burna Boy’s record-breaking Grammy-nominated album “African Giant”. The truth is, the project shined a light on the genre much more than before.
This year, Afrobeats has been well represented all over the world. Burna Boy has still proven himself to be a true African giant with his recent music which the world is still loving. The demand for the genre has grown to massive heights and there seems no decline in the future.
Here are some of the best Afrobeats songs released from January to May 2020.
