Apple Music Has Launched Eight New African Playlists
Apple Music has added eight new playlists to its already enormous library, as part of Apple Music Africa’s ambition to reflect all areas, genres, and scenes in Sub-Saharan Africa.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Hits Afrique, Afro Folk, Bongo Flava, Africa’Jazznation, Afro-Fusion, Rap Ivoire, Afrikaans in Spatial Audio, and Afrobeats in Spatial Audio are among the much-anticipated additions to the Apple Music African playlist ecosystem.
Hits Afrique compiles the most popular songs from Francophone Africa, whilst Afro-Folk blends aspects of African storytelling with neo-soul and alternative sounds.
The new Rap Ivoire playlist promotes Côte d’Ivoire’s developing hip-hop movement and reflects the new realities of urban life, while Bongo Flava shows tunes that blend Western styles of R&B and hip-hop, dancehall, Afrobeats, traditional Taarab and Dansi sounds.
Afro-Fusion combines the musical traditions of Soukous and Ndombolo with R&B, pop, jazz, and hip-hop. Similarly, Africa Jazznation features a diverse range of modern African jazz, as well as famous collaborations that span boundaries.
Finally, Apple Music has debuted Afrobeats in Spatial Audio and Afrikaans in Spatial Audio playlists, both of which provide an immersive listening experience and include premiere performers in each genre.
