Ghana meets Jamaica in this impressive new collaboration.
"Shuga" is built on stuttering synth hits and beat work produced by Ghana's StreetBeatz. Stonebwoy and the "King of Dancehall" connect over the energetic rhythm, each delivering their own verses—add one more track to the many stellar cross-Atlantic musical collaborations that have been going on for years, in particular between West Africa and Jamaica.
"This collab is legendary," Stonebwoy wrote on his social media pages.
The single comes paired with a new music video directed by BlingBlang which follows the Ghanaian star and Beenie Man to a railroad station as they turn a train car into a dancehall party. Beenie Man even plays the conductor for a few shots.
Stonebwoy's no stranger to dropping big time collaborations like this one as we saw him join Sean Paul last year for "Most Original." The song was one of the highlights on the Ghanaian artist's latest album Epistles of Mama (EOM), which paired 12 dancehall tracks with 12 afrobeats songs.
