The Queen of House music, Bucie is back with new music just in time for the festive season. The immensely talented vocalist recently announced that she will be dropping her long awaited album, Rebirth next week. Before that though, she is giving us a teaser of the album with a new joint, titled Don’t Leave.
Bucie drops new single, Don’t Leave along with album pre-order
Don’t Leave comes after almost 2 years of Bucie not dropping any new music as a solo artist. And with rumours that she will be retiring, a lot of fans were left heartbroken. She has since featured on various songs including Mobi Dixon’s Love Me Right and Heavy K’s iNde with Nokwazi.
This year she featured on Soz’Uphinde alongside Mpumi and NaakMusiQ’s Ntombi. These songs helped to bridge the gap and honestly, we cannot imagine a summer without a Bucie hit song.
Don’t Leave is classic Bucie vibe. It features very soulful vocals and amazing RnB runs that only she can do. The song is about a woman who is insecure that her man may be cheating on her so she checks his phone constantly and generally finds it hard to trust him.
Instead of leaving him though, she stays because she still loves him. She begs him not to leave her because you know, she realizes that she’s unreasonable.
Is Rebirth Bucie’s last studio album?
Although Rebirth is slated to be Bucie’s last studio album, we doubt the fans will allow that. The album features a satisfying, 12 tracks with a reasonable amount of features.
Bucie went all out on this one with features from Thabsie, Kwesta, Yemi Alade, Black Motion and DJ Mshega. She also features Mobi dixon, Mpumi and DJ Kamera. The album features sets a nice balance between DJ’s and vocalists. We can’t wait to hear it.
The album is available for pre-order on Apple Music and it is set to drop on the 14th of November.
Kwaito Rapper Mgaga Releases His Debut Solo Single Titled All The Way
Mgaga goes all in with his Kwaito love song titled All The Way
Kwaito artists have always been making love songs; I guess there is nothing sexier than a thug expressing his love for you in Kasi lingo. Imagine Brown Dash’s Vum Vum or Trompies when they sang Sweety Lavo. These songs carried such a beatiful message. Today, talented Kwaito rapper, Mgaga, is keeping this tradition on by releasing his very own Kwaito love song titled All The Way. This one features August Child and Sizwe Magwaza.
At an early age Mgaga was moved from Alexandra township to Tembisa and then to Edenvale. Growing up with a heavy Hip Hop and Kwaito influence, Mgaga started writing rap songs and freestyle battling. He later discovered that he expresses himself best and relates to his audience in vernac utilizing the Kwaito flow.
He began his music career in 2014 as part of a group called PAQ performing in popular clubs around South Africa. Formally known as Radi-AK, Mgaga is now taking on the world as a solo act with authentic Kwaito music.
All The Way is Mgaga’s first solo single
All The Way is Mgaga’s first solo single after the re-branding from formally being called Radi-AK to going by Mgaga, a name he was popularly known by since before he pursued music professionally. The word “Mgaga” refers to an AK47 because the first letters of his birth name “Akhona” are “AK”, which is his childhood name.
All The Way is such a breath of fresh air in that it carried this concentrated essence of Kwaito music without trying too hard. Instead, Mgaga effortlessly flows on this Kwaito and House hybrid beat and he does the most. He raps about a woman he loves and how he wants to take their love and relationship the whole way. August Child and Sizwe Magwaza do the most on the hook certifying All The Way as a summer hit!
