New Music: Fuse ODG – Island
After becoming the first Ghanaian to win a Grammy earlier this year for his contributions to Ed Sheeran‘s album, Fuse ODG is back with a bold new sound on his new track “Island”.
Inspired by hearing Latin sounds through his recent travels, “Island” serves up a cocktail of Fuse’s irrepressible Ghanaian energy with a reggaeton flavor rich with energizing rhythms and strident horns. It’s a track which represents a natural evolution from his previous music as well as an exciting taster of what’s to come from his forthcoming second album.
The track was produced by Dutch/Surinamese duo Yr$ Trly with RGen, a Londoner with Sri Lankan heritage, who previously contributed to the early Fuse track “Antenna”.
