KG has teamed up with London-born, LA-based singer Taliwhoah on a new track, 'Mantra'.
The track is third to be unveiled from KG's forthcoming EP, 'Sensei II'. It sees the pair fuse the Afrobeats and rhythmic house of much of KG's work with Taliwhoah's R&B vocals.
Speaking about the track, KG said: "In this song, Taliwhoah affirms that she is intentional with who she loves, she feels real things. This track has future house/R&B remnants - we wanted to make this a euphoric roller for the listener to vibe to, to relate to. It is a love song.”
KG has shared a new single featuring South African star Toya Delazy. ‘Nzinga’ is taken from a forthcoming EP due to land next month.
The track combines afrobeat, gqom, hard drum and R&B elements, paying homage to the roots of both artists involved. "Nzinga name wise is of African origin, has multiple definitions — Higher Level, Beautiful, Queen of Africa. Queen Nzinga fought for the Independence and stature of her kingdoms against the Portuguese in a reign that lasted 37 years," KG said of the track name.
