Friday Music Break: Rockie Fresh, Jhene Aiko, Zeus, P Square and Chrisette Michele

I’ve had a few tracks on repeat this past week and thought I should share them. There’s some hiphop, R&B, soul and (Afro)pop.

The first is from Rockie Fresh and is called “AC Green”. Came across this song through a dance video by Les Twins and loved it. It’s from his mixtape “The Otherside Redux” which can be downloaded here.

The next song is by Jhene Aiko who’s been in the game since 2002. She however recently signed a new deal and has began working on her new album “Souled Out” which will be released in 2013. In the meantime her mixtape “Sailing Souls”, released in 2011, is keeping her fans happy. The song below is called My Mine and is one of my favourites off the mixtape which you can download here.

And now we come to Africa, Botswana specifically where Zeus, local rap artist, has released a video for a new single called “You knows me”. The song is off his up coming mixtape “Honey I’m home”.

Moving on to Nigeria, this song by the popular duo P Square recently caught my attention. It has quite a lively video, I wanna go to that party! The song is called “Alingo” and is a single for an upcoming album.

Last but not least, check out Chrisette Michele’s new single off her upcoming mixtape “Audrey Hepburn: An Audiovisual Presentation”. The song is called “Charades” and is paired with a subtle black and white video. Her mixtape is scheduled to be available for download on December 8th. I cannot wait!
