Stream Cassper Nyovest’s New Album ‘A.M.N (Any Minute Now)’ Featuring Anthony Hamilton, Boogie, HHP, Busiswa, Langa Mavuso and More

Cassper Nyovest officially releases his fifth studio album 'A.M.N (Any Minute Now)'.

Cassper Nyovest has released his fourth studio album A.M.N (Any Minute Now) after a two years hiatus from releasing albums. The album is tied to the rapper's first born child who could be born "any minute now" (hence the artwork).

In true Cassper Nyovest fashion, Any Minute Now, has a bit of everything—the rapper puts his haters in place and self-introspects over a wide range of production styles—boom bap, trap, kwaito and touches of jazz.


Cassper Nyovest is assisted by a plethora of guests, ranging from Anthony Hamilton to Boogie, Zola 7, Samthing Soweto, Langa Mavuso, Tellaman, Youngsta CPT, Busiswa, Nadia Nakai, Khuli Chana, Tuks, Mo' Molemi, Towdee Mac, DJ Lemonka and HHP .

Boogie appears on the piano-laden mellow tune "Thoughts" in which Nyovest shares his private thoughts about the future and notably reveals a conflict with Siyabonga "Scoop" Ngwekazi. He raps, "Now I don't force a smile with niggas like Scoop/ Who don't love me like they say they do/ I can see it in the way that they move." 👀

"Nyuku Remix", one of the album's most anticipated songs, is a motswako posse cut that is reminiscent of the golden years of the subgenre that was popularised by the late HHP, who appears alongside an array of motswakolistas Khuli Chana, Mo' Molemi, Towdee Mac and DJ Lemonka.

"Isinkwa" features the late Pro, and Cassper Nyovest ensures the kasi rap legend's fans won't be disappointed. "Isinkwa" is one of the album's instant standouts as Nyovest renders pristine verses over a nostalgic and mellow instrumental.

AMN is opened by Zola 7 who belts out an emotive hymn on the song "Hlengiwe". The legendary kwaito star appears on the single "Bonginkosi" which appears towards the end of AMN.

"This album is everything to me, I have worked with the best of artists, they each brought their magic to this album," says Cassper Nyovest in a press release. "Zola is an iconic artist, I looked up to him as a young boy growing up in the North West, little did I know I would share the same studio and make magic with him. The biggest prize is my family, I am going to be a father and that is a huge blessing. I look forward to it."

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.
