Hear the new collaboration from the Tanzanian superstar's new album, A Boy From Tandale.

East African star Diamond Platnumz has just dropped his latest album, A Boy From Tandale, today.

The new 18-song record includes some high-level collaborations with the likes of Vanessa Mdee, Flavour, Rick Ross—who he connected with for the previously released "Waka"Ne-Yo, Nigerian stars Tiwa Savage, Davido, P-Square, and more.

He's also sharing his new music video for "African Beauty," a highly-addictive, Krizbeatz-produced track alongside Omarion.
