Award-winning Tanzanian singer Rajab Abdul Kahali, popularly known as Harmonize, has released a new track with Jamaican reggae band Morgan Heritage and it’s a big tune.
The jam dubbed Malaika, which is a Swahili word that means angel, has been ruling the airwaves since it came out a few days ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.
Basically, this song, which is off Harmonize’s Afro East album, is about a lady who is causing the musician sleepless nights. All he wants is to be with her and vows not to let anyone come between them.
Malaika is really infectious. I’ve listened to it a couple of times since it was released and every time I play it, it is like I’m hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that good.
Harmonize is an amazing vocalist and he brought his A-game in this song. He has the kind of voice that drives ladies wild and you just want to keep listening to him.
He’s also a dope lyricist and perhaps the best thing about this song is that it is easy to memorize so you will know the whole of it after listening twice, maybe thrice.
As expected, Morgan Heritage really came through in this song. Believe you me, nothing sounds better than a fusion of Bongo and Reggae, it just sounds pleasant to the ears.
Harmonize’s voice blends so well with that of the Morgan Heritage members so much so that I’m looking forward to hearing more collabos from them.
I also loved the beat and instrumentation on Malaika. Other than the fact that they are catchy, they also go well with the vocals and tempos of the artists.
Listen to Malaika below and tell us what you think.
