Fuse ODG Teams Up with Ed Sheeran and Mugeez for 'Boa Me'—and It's Actually Good

Don't be surprised if you have this new track on repeat.

You can always count on Fuse ODG to push boundaries when it comes to taking afrobeats global.

The "Antenna" maestro just released a new track today, "Boa Me," in collaboration with Mugeez of R2Bees and Ed Sheeran.


Yes, Ed Sheeran.

The cynical and hypercritical side of me wants to be a hater—but the song is actually really good.

Take a listen via Spotify below. It's also available on Apple Music.

"Boa Me" has an effortless groove thanks to producer Killbeatz, and the trio really gel together. It's a track that's not by force.

The reactions to the song have been hilarious, especially when Ghanaians admit that Sheeran's Twi is better than their's.

Let me find out he too, also loves him some waakye.

We see you, Fuse ODG (and Ed). Can't wait to see what comes next.
