African Artist Asake Makes Apple Music History
Afrobeats artist Asake had a record-breaking weekend on Apple Music with the release of his debut album, Mr. Money With The Vibe. Upon its release, the album broke the record for the biggest opening day for an African album in Apple Music history.
Mr. Money With The Vibe sees Asake lean into the larger-than-life persona that songs like “Sungba” and “PALAZZO” established. He details his new realities with swagger—contemplating romance, life, and his position in the game over beats delicately crafted by close creative ally Magicsticks. His flair for experimenting within the amapiano framework continues here as he loops the call-and-response pattern of classic Afrobeat over the log drums, sax, and piano on “Organise.”
