Listen to Bucie’s New Album ‘Rebirth’ Featuring Mobi Dixon, Kwesta, Black Motion & More

Bucie's final album packs serious heat.

South African singer and songwriter Bucie has a new album. Rebirth, which the artist says is her last release, features a Pan African guestlist of heavyweights including the rapper Kwesta, SA singer Thabsie, Nigerian singer Yemi Alade, Zimbabwe's Mr Kamera, house artists Black Motion, Mpumie, DJ Mshega and Mobi Dixon.


Rebirth is a great deep house album you should be partying to this festive season. It includes, alongside new songs, the 2016 single "Rejoice," which features the duo Black Motion. Her recent single "Soz' Uphinde," featuring fellow singer Mpumi, also appears on the 12-track album.

As much as most of the album consists of soulful deep house tunes, it has its deviations. "You Chose Me" and "Messy World" featuring Yemi Alade and Mr Kamera lean towards Afrobeat, while "Thando Lwethu" featuring Kwesta is Afropop. Trap soul makes an appearance on "Thank You" featuring Thabsie.

Rebirth is an album you are highly likely going to enjoy from the first to the last song, and if it really is Bucie's last offering, it's a solid epilogue.

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.
