Afrobeats hot hits - new urban dance grooves from africa

The hot new world dance style “Afrobeats” (not to be confused with Fela’s Afrobeat) is a dynamic mix of reggae dancehall, soca, West African beats, tropical house and hip-hop and is considered to be the most exciting new sound on the scene today. Drake’s “One Dance” hit utilized an “Afrobeats” groove and featured Nigerian star Wizkid while Alicia Keys’ “In Common” sports an Afrobeats re-mix; artists as diverse as Chris Brown, Tinashe, Sean Paul, Busy Signal and Machel Montano have all collaborated with Afrobeats artists recently.

Afrobeats Hot Hits is the first internationally released compilation of some of Afrobeats' biggest hits and newest hits. It includes smash tracks featuring the genre’s biggest stars, including Davido, WizKid, Timaya, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Yemi Alade and more.

Such tracks as Timaya’s collaboration with Sean Paul, “Shake Ur Bum Bum,” the remix of “Woju” by Kiss Daniel featuring Davido, and Davido’s “Skelewu” have all been smashes on dance floors worldwide.
