Highly recommended if you like the sounds of Burna Boy, Wizkid or Rema, ‘Party’ is the brand new afroswing single from award-winning London based British Ghanaian artist GoldKay and it comes at exactly the right time to keep us in our summer moods for a bit much longer. Superbly fusing elements of afrobeats, R&B and dancehall music together to deliver on his infectious new single, ‘Party’ comes on the back of the success of GoldKay’s latest single ‘Like That’, which has already amassed over 100,000 streams in just a few months.
Created in collaboration with burgeoning Accra-based production duo Ugly x Tough, ‘Party’ is an exciting summertime track and instant party starter, with its infectious melodies, lush synth keys and glorious bassline, which sees GoldKay in celebratory mode. According to the London-based artist, “I made ‘Party’ whilst I was on holiday with friends at Rotterdam Carnival last year, we were celebrating each other’s recent achievements, throwing parties all day and having the best summer, that’s why the track is so perfect for celebrating and having a good time”.
Before emerging as a solo artist and bursting onto the UK afrobeats landscape with his infectious afroswing, R&B and dancehall fusion sound, highlighted by his breakout track ‘Bluffin’, GoldKay started out in music as a member of the acclaimed British choir group Gospel Singers Incognito, where he was able to hone his craft, amassing over 30 millions views on YouTube, with performances at the BBC, Channel 4, Bestival, Sky One and ITV, while also working with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Dappy (N-Dubz), Westllife and Crazy Cousinz, among others.
