Stonebwoy has once again proven to be one of the best recording and performing artistes from Ghana.
His lead single ‘Nominate’ featuring American singer, Keri Hilson, off the chart-topping ‘Anloga Junction’ album made an entry to Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart.
The track eight off the multiple award-winning musician’s fourth studio album leaped to the 19th position on the 25 best-selling international digital singles chart in the United States.
He was also ranked according to sales, streams, or airplay, and based on the popularity of the song and album in the United States and across the globe. He becomes the first Ghanaian to make it to the sales chart.
The song, produced by Andre ‘Dre’ Harris, is a standout from the 15-track project, which the artist dropped on April 24, 2020.
The project, which comes off the album paired with a video directed by Denzel Williams, follows the Ghanaian star and the American superstar to an auditioning hall where the two musicians played the role of judges as they view samples of performance by models who are aspiring to be crowned ‘Miss World Wide’. The video was shot in America.
On ‘Anloga Junction’, the Afro-dancehall artiste pulls off an ambitious task by folding his collaborators’ varied styles into his signature sound. Fellow Ghanaian Kojo Antwi fits the reggae feel of ‘Nkuto’, and the bass rhythm of ‘Bow Down’ flows in sync with Nasty C’s energy.
Frequently singing in his Ewe language, particularly on the Keri Hilson collaboration, ‘Nominate’, Stonebwoy always finds his way back to the unique style that has made him special.
His last album, released on December 12, 2017; the ‘Epistles of Mama’ was dedicated to Satekla’s late mother, Mrs Catherine Lucy Aku Ametepe Satekla. The 24 track album features Sean Paul, King Promise, Burna Boy.
The album peaked at number thirteen (13) on Billboard chart top 200 albums worldwide.
In 2018 ‘Epistles of Mama (EOM)’ was rated the second-best album in the world according to reggaeville. The album was honoured by YouTube for hitting over 10 million views.
