The respected music site has finally admitted what I have always said....Afrobeat is the new sound and the whole world should take note. Our artists should in turn position themselves, to take advantage of the tide. Excerpts from the article.........
Near the peak of its set in Miami, Major Lazer drops the clearest evidence yet of pop’s borderlessness in the form of “Despacito,” Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s sun-splashed reggaetón hit, sung entirely in Spanish.
