Beyonce’s Already song featuring African dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, Official video snippet is out now and trending everywhere in Ghana.
The song is off Beyonce’s big project album tagged “The lion king, the Gift”.
The official date for the release of the highly anticipated “already” is still unknown.
Shatta Wale’s collaboration with Queen Bey is still the biggest collaboration of a Ghanaian musician with an international artist like Beyonce… that’s nice but….
Are we supporting our artists enough and is the international collaborations helping us?
Mugeez once said “African music cannot be so low to see the Grammys as a stage for it to be endorsed”.
I don’t know why Nigerians are not hyping the Beyonce’s project like the way we Ghanaians are doing it. The reason is simple and that is because they support their own the most and they don’t put so much weight on international collaborations.
I want our artists to make money trending worldwide with their own songs like Davido, Diamond Platinumz, Wizkid and co.
If we can use the same energy we are using to promote Beyonce’s song to promote Shatta Wale’s own release songs for him to make all the money, we awards and go international, it would have been better for us.
That international approval thing isn’t helping us.
Do you think if Shatta Wale also feature Beyonce on any of his albums, Americans will be hyping it the way we are doing it? … it’s a big no… we have to value our own and support it massively.
Nigerians supports their own with full energy and we Ghanaians must do same. Mediocrity is our problem.
Our artists must also work really hard.
