Flying Over 2019, Pt. III

Flying Over 2019, Pt. III: The Darlings of Your Airwaves

It is our sincerest hope that you’ve enjoyed the two year-end playlists we’ve put out earlier in the week as we crossed into 2020. We look forward to delve further into the patterns we were able to discern and share our thoughts on what’s to come. As such, the playlists serve as a preview. So in the first instance, we highlighted the shift towards a musical landscape that increasingly featured women. Then, we peeped into the ascent of Afrobeats (and African Pop) on the global stage. Here, we just take in the jams that were ubiquitous on the radio.

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
