You're Going To Have This UK Afrobeats Track On Repeat

SmartBeatz and Yemi Rush link up for the addictive "Tell Me."

London-based producer SmartBeatz is readying the drop of his debut mixtape, Certified, which is set to feature several of the main names coming out of the UK Afrobeats wave.

For his latest single, "Tell Me," he connects with singer Yemi Rush, who's been buzzing in the scene for tracks like "Kill Me" and "Do Me Right" with Moelogo.


"Tell Me" is a solid tune that blends live bass and synth instrumentation with SmartBeatz' smooth production work. The song follows both artists singing about a girl that's hard to get.

"This is the first track on my Certified project, and it sets the tone," SmartBeatz mentions. "It's also the first time I've worked with Yemi Rush. Before I produced the track, I listened to all his previous music, to understand his flow and style of music. I really like what he does, his songs have loads of melody, which I like, and it's been a joy to produce this tune for him."

Listen to our premiere of "Tell Me" below.
