Listen: Naomi Campbell Releases Afrobeats Playlist To Celebrate Black History Month
Naomi Campbell has blessed fans and music lovers around the world with her favorite playlist.
The supermodel and Apple Music have teamed up to put together a special playlist in honor of Black History Month. Inspired by her love for Afrobeats, the playlist features tracks from different artistes including Burna Boy, Wizkid, 2Baba, Tiwa Savage, Joeboy, Fireboy and more.
Speaking about the process behind curating this playlist, Naomi Campbell said:
Afrobeats makes me feel happy whenever I hear it. People just go to another level; it makes you want to dance and move.
Burna Boy’s ‘Anybody’ and Wizkid’s ‘Joro’ are songs that give me feelings I can’t get elsewhere. I love the sound of ‘Anybody.’ I love the live sound of the band and Burna’s voice on top of it. It’s a new sound but it sounds like live music, which is rare these days.
I’m all about rhythm and bass, and I love the slow build of ‘Joro.’ It’s a sexy, deep, sensual song, like it’s moving forward to reveal something from inside.
