Ebo Taylor...and Usher?


I think highlife (& African popular music in general) has been making a serious comeback over the past few years both internationally and within the continent. Compilations and reissues just keep coming, while musicians themselves are going back to their roots. I was happy to read that music legend Ebo Taylor is planning to release his first "international" album later this year. Here's a excerpt from record label Strut :

Interest in Ebo Taylor’s music has grown in recent years with a series of Ghanaian compilations on Soundway Records and Analog Africa and an unexpected sample as Usher lifted a riff from ‘Heaven’ for his hit with Ludacris, ‘She Don’t Know.’ A new Ebo Taylor album was a natural progression. "For new album, I wanted to advance the cause of Afrobeat music. Fela started it and we shouldn’t just abandon it. We should push it so it is a standard form of music." The result is a firing new set backed by Afrobeat Academy, a Berlin-based collective of international musicians. Tracks include new versions of Taylor classics ‘Victory’ and ‘Love And Death’ and a selection of new compositions including ‘Kwame,’ celebrating Ghana’s late, lamented leader Kwame Nkrumah.

I'm sure the new album will be great.


But can you believe this Usher business!!!
