The Queen of Afrobeats gave a teaser of what’s to come with her song, 49-99, with which she paid tribute to the late music legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
She has been putting in the work, doing the rounds for the promotion of her upcoming album, pushing Afrobeats in the process and now Vogue is commending her for her work alongside artists like Rihanna, Adele, Dua Lipa, BTS, and more.
Fresh off her signing with Motown/Universal records, she’s still blessing music lovers worldwide with great music and proving that she is 100 percent deserving of all she has achieved.
What better way to cement that than with a recommendation from Vogue magazine? The feature listed the top 11 albums to get excited about in 2020, and Tiwa’s album was on the list!
The feature reads:
“Commonly referred to as the Queen of Afrobeats (Tiwa herself prefers “Number One African Bad Girl”), Lagos-based, London-raised Tiwa has hinted a new album is imminent. And we’re so ready for it.
“Signing with Motown/Universal last year, Savage’s rapaciously vibrant and powerfully political 49-99 single (an homage to Fela Kuti’s Shuffering and Shmiling) has already hit nearly 9 million views as she continues to grow her fan base, which includes Drake, Beyoncé… and Vogue! Other details about the record are scant, but there’s no doubting Savage’s new album will be ferocious.”
