Fresh from an outstanding performance in Black is King, the queen of dance Busiswa is keeping tongues wagging as she launches her new hit track SBWL, a sultry summer inducing collaboration with fellow dance queen Kamo Mphela. That is not all, as the singer also reveals her new distribution deal with leading global distribution and artist and label services company The Orchard.
The dance track produced by DJ Clap titled SBWL – a word that derives from a phrase famously used on social media to express a “craving” – sees the two dance phenomenons in a colourful festive collage music video expressing their craving for the amapiano music, chesa nyama and staying out till late. All the things humans have been deprived of for the past five months of lockdown.
Said Busiswa: “SBWL is local township lingo that South Africans have made popular on social media. This kind of song, this kind of collaboration between two dance queens is important and relevant at this time because there is a notion out there that females don’t want to collaborate with each other so I am excited to be releasing this with Kamo.”
This will mark the first piece of work for Busiswa through her own label Majesty Music Entertainment that will be distributed by global distribution and artist and label services company The Orchard, which Busiswa declares “is a project about me”.
“The project that I am working on is going to feature a lot of prolific producers like DJ Maphorisa, Kabza da Small, Mas Musiq, Dj Clap, Pex Africah, Female Nigerian Producer by the name of Dunnie – its sounding beautiful.
“I want to make it all about me even though I am working on future collaborations this project is about me taking up space and claiming my place in the industry and becoming not just a features girl but being more than that a female who stands her own ground, on her own and her own projects. I am excited for people to hear it,” concluded the singer.
