Kabza De Small, DJ Maphorisa and TRESOR have joined forces to work on one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year.
The collaboration between the Scorpion Kings and TRESOR on the Rumble In The Jungle album is set to expand the amapiano sound across the globe merging dance music, different languages and a variety of African sounds.
They have been working on the album since last year and have plans to surpass the success of their previous record-breaking albums.
The first single off Rumble In The Jungle, “Funu” which was released in December, sees DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small delivering an intoxicating sound mixed with TRESOR’s uplifting vocals that blend amapiano and Afro-house. The song has been making appearances on the charts and dance floors across the continent.
Who is Folasade?
The second single in the album is called Folasade. Speaking to Pulse magazine TRESOR the inspiration behind the songand admitted that the song’s name is a mix of a girl from Nigeria and his love for fashion icon Sade.
“I love the Nigerian female name Folasade. I am also a big fan of singer and fashion icon Sade, this song was inspired by the ‘70s and ‘80s era and the nightlife of vibrant African cities like Lagos and Kinshasa – they really made a way for most of the great pop culture moments happening today in music and fashion. This song was inspired by that and celebrates the era, the pride, the unapologetic youth and the fashion. We also celebrate the beauty of African women,” he said.
