The grandson of one of Fela Kuti’s first managers, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy shares Nigerian origins, African pride and a certain charisma with the inventor of Afrobeat. A superstar at home, his notoriety keeps on growing at an international level, evidenced by his collaborations with Drake, Lily Allen and Major Lazer, and his Best International Artist BET award from 2019. The 19-track-strong African Giant also justifies this level of success: the meticulous production and hefty melodies complement his suave, sexy and compelling vocals. His songs elegantly float between R&B, sophisticated pop, soca, zouk, hip-hop but also jazz and rock. Distancing himself from the commercial label of afrobeats, probably out of respect for the image of the original afrobeat, Burna Boy describes his music as afro fusion. The riotous music gives you an unshakeable desire to dance… and makes you ponder the huge influence Africa has on most of today’s music. The calibre of the featured artists (British soul sister Jorja Smith, American prince of R&B Jeremih, the heir to reggae’s leader Damian Marley and Beninese queen Angélique Kidjo for francophone West Africa to name but a few) only goes to show Burna Boy’s aristocratic status in the industry. But even without them, it wouldn’t be difficult to understand the importance of this African Giant. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Bob Marley’s Unfinished Trilogy

It was precisely 40 years ago that Bob Marley released his final album, Uprising, the climax to his political trilogy (with Survival and Confrontation) that was left unfinished after Marley was taken by cancer in 1981. Let us look back at this Jamaican prophet’s shift towards militarism during his last three years on Earth.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Reggaeton in 10 Albums

A combination of Jamaican dancehall, American hip-hop, Caribbean rhythms and Spanish wit, reggaeton has, since its birth in the early 90s, shaken the world of pop music time and time again. From DJ Playero’s first mixtapes to Daddy Yankee’s “Barrio Fino” and Don Chezina’s “Tra-Tra-Tra, Puerto Rican musicians and their Colombian counterparts in Medellin have done their utmost to take over the world. In the last decade, they have done just that thanks to artists such as Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny. Read on for 10 of the genre’s most important albums. Reggaeton won’t be going anywhere any time soon.
