For the umpteenth time, Afro-fusion chanteuse, Tome, has showcased her dexterity at exploring the finest of African rhythms. With her new offering dubbed Wait, the Nigerian-Canadian singer has kicked off her yuletide groove in the mesmerizing rhythms of Amapiano.

Catching on strongly across the continent, the Amapiano rhythm soars for its exciting piano chords and log drums, which give off an upbeat and melodic vibe. Tome captures her optimism in this record, which was produced by Grammy-nominated sound whiz, Legundury Beatz, giving off a feel-good, party-popping feeling.

Wait is the lead single off Tome’s upcoming album dubbed, No Long Talk. It comes off the heels of the singer’s smash hit, I Pray, featuring Jamaican superstar Sean Kingston, which gave Tome her JUNO award for Reggae Recording of the Year.

“I want to dominate global sounds. Amapiano is a global sound; not just for now, but for the future. So I had to give it my best shot for the culture and to create something timeless with a life of its own that people in Africa and the World could vibe to,” she tells Weekend Beats.
