Multiple award winning rapper Sarkodie finaly unveils his much anticipated 8th studio album titled JAMZ. The album comes with loads of features some of Africa’s most prominent artists. The body of work is primarily infused with African-inspired hip-hop, a sound that Sarkodie has become renowned for.
Some of the artists included in the project are Black Sherif, Cina Soul, Oxlade, Lojay, Joeboy, BNXN, Kranium, and King Promise.
Back in September, Sarkodie teamed up with King Promise to release “Labadi,” the leading single from JAMZ. Through “Labadi,” fans got to experience a snippet of the overall album, released today November 11. In the song, Sarkodie stayed true to his signature fast-paced rap style but used a fusion of Afropop, hip-hop, and amapiano to sonically elevate the playability of the record. King Promise’s lines on the hook and chorus of the song also added to the dreamy vibe of the record.
JAMZ is the follow-up to Sarkodie’s No Pressure album from last year, which also featured big-name collaborations that added versatility to his last project. JAMZ is an extension of that versatility, and every record on the album offers a unique spin on the rapper’s sound. Although he has evolved over the years, the ability to tell stories through rap and his native language of Twi, which he has helped put on the map, has never ceased. The African rap icon has continually pushed his native language Twi over the course of his career.
