Maleek Berry comes through with “Magic” medley

From the beautiful Bali island of Indonesia

Unsurprisingly, music as an art form takes inspiration from life as much as itself. For Afropop which often infuses pop elements, it makes sense that some of the finest acts will pay homage to their counterparts from around the world. Maleek Berry’s latest serving from the beautiful Bali island of Indonesia, fuses some of the best local and international hits into a medley aptly titled, “Magic”.

Mashing Coldplay’s “Magic” with Wande Coal’s “Super Woman” and Mario’s “Let Me Love You” to form a comprehensive whole, he pays tribute to the songs which he confesses are “Some Of (His) Favorite Songs”. Over the mid-tempo atmospheric percussion and classic boom-bap drum riffs, he harmonizes all three songs expertly. Save for the slight language change during his Wande Coal cover, Maleek Berry seamlessly transitions between the three songs.
