Sauti Sol and Burna Boy Link Up For New Single  'Afrikan Star'

Listen to the Kenyan pop group's mellow new single featuring Burna Boy.

Following well-received collaborations with the likes of Pantoranking on "Melanin," and Tiwa Savage on "Girl Next Door" Kenyan supergroup Sauti Sol return with another standout track, this time featuring Naija dancehall heavyweight, Burna Boy.

The musical stars link up on the new single "Afrikan Star," a mellow ballad that sees the band and Burna trading emotive verses back & forth about a really fly girl who has their hearts.

The video features the crew in, what looks like, and old mansion filled with colorful furniture and a really great book collection.

Burna Boy is coming fresh off the release of his latest album Outside. Be sure to check it out here if you haven't already.

This is the third single from Sauti Sol's LP Afrikan Sauce, which will be unveiled over a year-long period, reports Konbini. So looks like we have a lot more to look forward to from the group.
