Young Fathers 'LOW'

Watch Young Fathers new music video for "LOW" and get the details on their upcoming album DEATH.

Young Fathers crashed onto our radar with two outstanding mixtapes — Tape One and Tape Two — that could've well been albums. The Edinburgh-based Scottish / Liberian / Nigeria trio recently announced Dead, their first proper LP, which is lead by this video single for "LOW." The clip is a hyper-colored affair accentuated by soothing refrains and jarring choruses in the vein of Young Fathers' art-rap compositions. For more from the band check out YF's Africa In Your Earbuds mixtape. Watch the video for "LOW" below and look for Dead out Feb 4 via Anticon/Big Dada.

The ‘Coming 2 America’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack & ‘The Rhythm Of Zamunda’ Are Out Now

Featuring Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga, Alpha P, Davido and many more.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
