African popular music (often called Afropop, Afro-pop or Afro pop), like African traditional music, is vast and varied.

This playlist centered contemporary genres of African music build the cross-pollination with western popular music like: rhythm & blues, hip-hop, jazz, salsa, and reggae.

Open in Spotify

Afrobeats (not to be confused, as I was, with Afrobeat) and Afro-pop is less of a style and more of a descriptor for the fusion of sounds flowing out of Ghana and Nigeria.

Here’s a collection of mainly recent releases from a variety of artists. Hope you enjoy.

As always stay safe, sane, and kind.
