Watch Afro B & French Montana's New Video For 'Joanna (Drogba)' Remix

The massive Afrowave track gets a big remix.

Afro B's massive single and arguably one of the song of 2018, "Joanna (Drogba)," continues to make waves well into 2019.

The UK-based Ivorian artist expertly paced out the rollout of the track for maximum exposure, going from the #DrogbaChallenge, to the music video (which we premiered), to getting notable radio airplay in the US and the UK and becoming one of the 'Afrowave ambassador tracks' that everyone's familiar with by now.

Following the Wizkid remix of "Joanna (Drogba)," Afro B is now sharing another revisit to his hit alongside French Montana.

The new remix keeps the original qualities and structure of the highly-addictive Team Salut-produced hit. French Montana pops in for a few added bars that keep the energy going. We previously interviewed Team Salut about how they're making soe of the biggest Afrowave hits right now.

South African Artist Mohau Modisakeng Makes Solo NYC Debut With 'A Promised Land'

The artist will present the video installation 'ZION' and other works centering on the "global history of displacement of Black communities" at the Jenkins Johnson Gallery in Brooklyn.

Renowned South African visual artist Mohau Modisakeng presents A Promised Land, his latest solo exhibition, opening at Brooklyn's Jenkins Johnson Gallery this month. This marks the New York debut of Modisakeng's ZION video installation, based on the artists's 2017 performance art series by the same name. It originally debuted at the Performa Biennial.

"In ZION the artist deals with the relationship between body, place and the global history of displacement of Black communities," reads a press release. "There is an idea that all people are meant to belong somewhere, yet in reality there are millions of people who are unsettled, in search of refuge, migrating across borders and landscapes for various reasons."

In addition to the video, the show also features seven large-scale photographs that communicate themes of Black displacement. From 19th century Black settlements in New York City, which as the press release notes, were eradicated to clear space for the development of Central Park, to the scores of Africans who have faced conflict that has led them to life as refugees in foreign lands.
