Ghanaian Singer and Songwriter, Amaarae premiered a song on Live 91.9 FM Tuesday.
Titled ‘Spend Some Time,’ the song features Nigerian artiste, Wande Coal.
“I think what makes ‘Spend Some Time’ special was, for me the way that I saw people who first heard it react to it,” stated Rae to Antoine Mensah on R0ute919, Live 91.9 FM‘s Drive time show.
“It’s a very cool fusion of different types of genres. It is a cool fusion of R & B. It is a cool fusion of South African house. It is also a cool fusion of Afrobeat which is what Wande brings to the track with his feature.”
The lush record was mixed and mastered by MikeMillzOnEm.
The official video of the song was directed by David Nicol-Sey. Set in the 1970’s music era, it was inspired by the works of the likes of Diana Ross, Cher and Donna Summer.
