Who You’ll Hear

Whether you are from the continent or just drawn to the music and culture, one thing is certain — Afrobeats is proving its staying power in the American market.

Burna Boy became the first African Artist to sell out a US Stadium (NYC’s CitiField in Queens). Rema’s “Calm Down” is the most-streamed African song in the history of the US, setting a new record for Afrobeats music. Davido had three sold-out shows in DC, Houston, and Chicago. And Ayra Starr (plus two other emerging artists, BNXN and Victony) is on the cover of Teen Vogue for this month.
