Listen to Dr. Chaii's New Afropop Earworm ‘Casanova’

The renowned producer returns with his infectious take on Afropop.

Dr. Chaii recently released the Afropop earworm "Casanova". Infusing elements of pon pon on the mellow love song, the multi-faceted artist smoothly croons his affections to his love interest on the 2-minute jam.

The Zimbabwean-born artist and producer broke through in 2016 after featuring on Sean Paul and Dua Lipa's single "No Lie", before spreading his colourful iteration of Afropop in his solo capacity.

The diverse artist has since notched up massive songwriting and production credits, most notably for his work alongside J Balvin, Camila Cabello and Pitbull on the Grammy-nominated track "Hey Ma".

With further collaborations with Jason Derulo, French Montana and Chris Brown, it's his work with compatriot Bantu that stands out. The two scored a major coup when their infectious song "Jackie Chan" was featured on the FIFA 19 official soundtrack.

The frequent collaborators met again on the Harare-native's last body of work; the collaborative Coming To America EP. The project sees Dr. Chaii explore various rhythms and houses guests such as Bipolar Sunshine and Ice Prince, with "Stretch" featuring DaniLeigh making waves across streaming platforms.

The sprightly "Casanova" maintains that feel-good energy of "Stretch," with its catchy refrain and positive outlook on romance. It's Afropop with a rhythmic pulse and catchy melody.

Listen to Casanova on Apple Music, Spotify and other platforms.
