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.

Dying Lagoons Reveal Mexico’s Environmental Racism

In the heart of a traditionally Black and Indigenous use area in Southwest Mexico, decades of environmental destruction now threatens the existence of these communities.

On an early morning in September 2017, in a little fishing village in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, called Zapotalito, thousands of dead fish floated on the surface of the Chacahua-Pastoría lagoons. A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
