Award-winning Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has highlighted one of his favorite records and favored music genre on his just released album, ‘Jamz’.
Sarkodie’s blessed fans with some impressive features on his seventh studio album including the likes of the hottest Ghanaian trapper, Black Sherif, Cina Soul, King Promise, BNXN and Oxlade among others.
However, the Ghanaian rap legend has hinted that his possible favorite music from his 10- track album is “She Bad” which features Oxlade.
Despite having the popular Amapiano sounds, Sarkodie believes the song perfectly has a balanced fusion of Moov tunes, his preferred genre. Hence, his favorite song on the album
In an interview on Y107.9’s ‘Y Lounge’ with Akosua Hanson, he reiterated that the Moov music doesn’t come new to his style, but rather less explored.
“I’ve always been spiritual about music and always loved Moov music. I think I’ve always been in and out of that zone but I think the rapper side of me dominates more. People see that more than my other sides. I really love RnB and these things have been with me. But sometimes you just need to keep it real and do what you do. But I’ve always loved music that makes you feel something, whether sad or happy and that has to move you in some direction,” he said.
According to Sarkodie, he loved the ability to express emotions through music and for him that makes “She Bad” stand out.
Speaking more on the genesis of the music, he continued, “I was really involved in the production of the music produced by GuiltyBeatz. He came to the house, had a great session and I was like let’s create something. It was around 2-3 am, dawn and you could actually feel the time in the music. You had to be so calm and that’s how come we recorded this. Trust me this could actually be my no.1. cause it’s a 2 in 1 record. You have emotions in there but still good music. Normally you have to compromise the commercial part and do the Moov music but if you have both in the record, I think you’re good to go and that’s what I created in the record,” he continued.
The ‘Labadi’ hitmaker furthered, “I think the balance was because it wasn’t deliberate like I was trying to do this whole project and that’s what makes it unique. That’s the thing about music. The hardest part is when I enter the studio I keep having this problem. Producers keep asking me what are we going and I’m always like let’s make good music. I don’t know what it’s going to be whether Hip-Hop, RnB or whatever.”
