Out with the old and in with the new. R&B artist Nas and Reggae phenomenon Junior Gong collaborates their first album together called Distant Relatives. They released their album on the 18th of May with Universal Republic and Def Jam Recordings. Their hit number As we enter was on top of the charts.
Most of the songs in the album focus on Africa and bringing its people together. The album Distant Relatives, deals with people belonging to Africa and how we are all distant relatives in a way. This album is a mix of reggae with hip-hop, with a hint of R&B.
One of the songs you really have to listen to in this album is The strong will continue. It makes you think about a lot of things that is happening in the world and gives you a sense of pride by questions your ability to continue in this world.
The son of the legend Bob Marley is really starting to walk in his father’s shoes by adding what he learnt from his father and by adding a little twist to it. They have sold about 57 000 albums in their first week of release. It is definitely one of the must know albums on my list and should definitely be on yours.
