Leaves might be starting to brown, but that doesn’t mean you have to succumb to the dreaded post-summer blues. And afrobeats is the perfect antidote.
Not to be confused with Afrobeat, the genre pioneered by Nigerian artist Fela Kuti in the 1970s, afrobeats is the ultimate 2019 sound. Some people might credit Drake’s ‘One Dance’ for popularizing the genre, but we’d argue that pure talent mixed with a hint of globalization did the trick.
From Wizkid and Mr. Eazi to Burna Boy and Santi, the Nigerian-birthed genre is the ultimate pick-me-up, and we’ve curated the perfect playlist for you.
