Listen to 2 New Songs From AKA’s Upcoming Album

Touch My Blood loading...

South African rapper AKA just released two songs from his upcoming album Touch My Blood. "Beyoncé" and "Amen" are yours when you pre-save or pre-order the album from your online store or streaming site of choice.


On "Beyoncé," AKA distastefully addresses his love-triangle with his baby mama and his ex-girlfriend. "How you gon' be my fiancé? Living like Rihanna, thinking you Beyoncé," he croons on the hook. I was cringing throughout.

"Amen" is the most impressive of the two. He is back to sampling vintage house songs, a style he started on his sophomore album, Levels. And he features the rapper L-Tido, who once had a feud with but now collaborates with frequently. The song is six minutes long, but it seems short.
