Apple Music Afrobeats Hits Playlist Cover Art
Got the opportunity to illustrate the cover art for @AppleMusic’s ‘Afrobeats Hits’ playlist. I wanted to
highlight the energy, the jive, the attention to excellence and spontaneity as well as the
beautiful hybridisationin this sound of 21st century Africa.
Born in Nigeria and Ghana, Afrobeats has become one of the most eclectic—and exportable—sounds in contemporary music, mixing with everything from rap and dancehall to R&B and house. Slippery as it is to pin down, here’s a snapshot of Afrobeats’ biggest and best tunes right now—the infectious but indefinable sound of 21st-century Africa. Apple Music regularly refreshes this playlist with new music. If you like a track, add it to your library.
