Peep Nasty C’s Picks in His Exclusive Shazam Playlist, a First for an African Artist

Apple Music launches the very first Shazam Exclusive Playlist for an African artist with Nasty C.

Nasty C's Shazam Exclusive Playlist is the first in which Apple Music features picks from an African artist. The South African lyricist joins artists such as Lizzo, Kesha, Anne-Marie and others who've all shared their selections on Apple Music.

"I chose these songs because they are my go-to tracks for when I'm in a good mood," says Nasty C. "I bang this list when I'm traveling, in the car and even in the shower. Music makes me feel free and unrestricted. It's important to choose your playlist wisely."

This news comes after Nasty C released his single "There They Go" at the back of signing a deal with Def Jam Recordings. The song, which also makes the emcee's Shazam Exclusive Playlist, was his debut release with the label and it will appear in his upcoming album Zulu Man With Some Power.

The album was announced last year, and currently has no release date. No new details have been shared about the album, but we are aware the rapper will be working with international artists and producers such as No I.D and T.I..
