Beyoncé links up with Afrobeat star Burna Boy for a new song titled JA ARA E. Available for download and streamimg, the new song is one we already love here at HouseofACE. Its a really smooth track with a vibe to it.
Beyonce served up music project which enlisted the vocals from top Nigerian music acts and Burna Boy could not be ignored. We have already hear NILE featuring kendrick Lamar and Brown Skin Girl which features Blue Ivy, Wizkid and Saint JHn.
The album, to be released on the same day as the movie, is a 14-track accompaniment to the film. The singer curated and produced the album herself, so it’s almost like a bonus Beyoncé album.
In an interview with ABC ahead of the video’s release, she called the album a “love letter to Africa.”
“I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sound and did my own interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa,” she said.
It’s not just talk. In addition to popular American artists like Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino, the album features musicians from Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and South Africa.
