After engaging fans to contest what acronym ‘BM’ signifies, African popular music front-woman, Yemi Alade has announced new album. It’s called Black Magic and it’s out October this year via Effyzzie Entertainment and Rebel Movement.

Since crowning herself the mother of Africa, Yemi Alade had long predetermined the future of her career. She has neither swayed nor reversed since releasing her first studio album in 2014, King of Queens. A follow up to that was an album she and her team chose to title Mama AfricaWhat sustains as a legacy for Yemi Alade were songs like “Nagode”, “Tumbum” and “Komkom”. These tracks were so patched as radio idents that they nearly transcended other tracks on the album. She chose to maximise the potential of such undecuts by releasing an extended version of it solely targeted at other countries in June. This she titled Mama AfriqueWith all four projects, including the upcoming Black Magic, Yemi Alade continues to cement her stay in the industry, spotlighting issues of African women and men with every song.

On her new song, “Knack Am” which is a single in the lead up to the new album, Yemi Alade soundtracks love over Afropop beats. Dj Coublon produces with some elements of igbo highlife worked by Fiokee’s guitar strumming style. If you are familiar with Yemi Alade’s voice and style from her past releases, you’ll probably recognise that “Knack Am” is nothing we’ve never heard before. What you hear, is still very Yemi Alade; cheeky, resilient and pop.
