Video: Miguel Live In South Africa + Says It Was 'Life Changing'

Check out video from singer Miguel in South Africa. His debut performance in South Africa for his album, Kaleidoscope Dream


There are quite a few reasons why Miguel is "that dude" right now, but in case you needed another one, here's some video of the singer performing live in Johannesburg and explaining briefly how his visit to the continent was "life changing." It was the singer's first time to South Africa for touring duties, and the warm reception he received caught the singer off guard - "You come to a completely different continent for the first time, and people know your music, it's pretty cool. It's humbling," Miguel told the Sunday Independent. Fresh off a Grammy win for Best R&B song with "Adorn," Miguel has been making the international rounds with Alicia Keys for her 'Girl On Fire' Tour - although from what we can tell, Miguel is bringing more than a little heat of his own. Check out the performances of "Pussy Is Mine" and "Sure Thing" by Miguel in South Africa below.

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.
