Yemi Alade has always recognized Afropop’s appeal to audiences outside Africa since she released a French, Swahili & Portuguese extension of her lauded sophomore LP, ‘Mama Afrique’. For her latest release, she has her eyes on the illustrious American listeners as she features Rick Ross for the dance-driven love song, “Oh My Gosh Remix”.
The catchy beat DJ Coublon produced for the original single is given a bit more bounce to fit the new hip-hop direction of the song. Though his highlife inspired instrumentals are still very much in full swing, 808 drum riffs, vocal samples and Rick Ross’ signature grunt ad-lib are added to accommodate his rap verse. However, the accompanying music video finds both artists in a studio designed to look like a beach scene at night with exotic dancers performing choreographed dance routines.
