Asake and Olamide Release Amapiano Jam

Afrobeats star Asake is adding variety to his repertoire with his latest single Amapiano. The track features YNBL Boss Olamide and as the title suggests has an amapiano undertone. Unlike most fusion tracks of the genres, like Tyla and Ayra Starr’s Girl Next Door, the song is commanded by a heavy afrobeat sound with a touch of the South African amapiano.

The party tune is a must on your Saturday thriving playlist. With a mixture of drumlines and catchy melodies, the track makes for a heavy party banger. Without the said piano the song keeps your head nodding and is sure to take over the club scene. The track was produced by Magicsticks and is set to feature on Asake’s upcoming sophomore album. Titled Work of Art, the album follows his maiden project Mr Money With The Vibe which had hit tracks like Sungba(remix ft Burna Boy), Joha, and Organise.

As the Nigerian sound takes over the world Asake continues to cement himself in the game alongside other superstars like Adekunle, Rema, Wizkid, and Burna Boy. Asake, whose government name is Ahmed Ololade, was born in Lagos, Nigeria. He has been in the afrobeats music game since 2018 and had his big break in 2020 with his hit track Mr. Money. Amapiano is his third official release of the year and as an avid dancehall fan, he needs to up the ante. Unlike dancehall, Afrobeats artists are not as prolific when it comes to churning out music. However, one could say it’s not about quantity but quality.

It’s good to see Africa unite in this fusion track and its influence has been evidenced by the uptake of afrobeats all over the United Kingdom and Europe. It’s about world domination, right? Seriously speaking, Amapiano is one to look out for if you’re a fan of both rising afrobeats and amapiano.
