On The Angel You Don’t Know, Amaarae colours outside the lines and defies sonic boundaries. The Ghanaian-American singer oscillates between the whimsical and authoritative with a lilting cadence, pondering escapism on “LEAVE ME ALONE” whilst nodding to a trap beat on “FANCY”.
It is a 14 track album which features a variety of young and talented acts.
By smoothly gliding along Afropop sounds, she bends reality to her will—with Cruel Santino (fka Santi), CKay, Moliy and others along for the ride.
“Sonically, ‘The Angel You Don’t Know’ is a testament to my love for music and my capabilities as an artist. I’m working within different genres and styles and really pushing my personal boundaries – faster tempos, ballsier lyrics, edgier textures and tones, the same is evident in the visuals as well. Spiritually, the energy is God level” Amaarae explains.
“The confidence. The audacity is evident throughout the record. I’m not backing down on any song.” After whetting our appetites with her last two releases; the sultry introductory single ‘Leave Me Alone’, followed by the boss anthem ‘Fancy’, Amaarae has cemented herself as an artist to watch, and one that’s firmly on the rise.
