Black Coffee is living his best life in Ibiza.

South African house DJ Black Coffee is living his best life in Ibiza, where he's a resident DJ at the club Hi Ibiza.


In a clip he shared on Twitter, the DJ can be seen performing to a hyped up crowd. In that same video, Coffee gets to meet UK singer Jorja Smith, who he appeared with on “Get It Together,” a song from Drake’s More Life playlist project released earlier this year.

“You sound amazing on the song,” Coffee tells Smith who responds, “Thank you so much.”

The two musicians get to perform “Get It Together” for the first time together to a crowd that seems to love every moment of it. Just like you, we wish we were there, too.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
