La Meme Gang’s latest single, “This Year” is the Ghanaian hip-wave group’s first single this year following the music video for “Kemor Ame”, off their ‘Linksters’ EP. “This Year” is a celebratory single, produced by MOG Beatz to a groovy baseline that compliments the elated performance from Kuami Eugene, Darkovibes, $pacely, and RJZ.
Over the mid-tempo mix of percussion, synth harmonies, horns and a catchy drum riff, Kuami Eugene sings a chorus making prophetic declarations about the motif for the year; “This Year, e Go Be My Year/This Year, Chale We All No Go Fear/ This Year, We Dey Come for You/ Anywhere the Party Dey we Must Come too”. His optimistic sentiments are echoed in the verses taken by the La Meme Gang members; Darkovibes, $pacely, and RJZ, who perform in a mix of English, pidgin and a native Twi language.
