Rising Ghanaian superstar Kwesi Arthur releases his brand new single “Winning” featuring Vic Mensa. Released today via Ground Up Chale and Platoon, the track is a new sneak peek from his forthcoming debut album set to release this summer. On the track, Vic Mensa makes sure to match the energy:
Kwesi and Kwesi we goin’ crazy, we at the top and we never gon’ stop/ Hop in the Ghost, I make it Swayze, I just got off the jet in Accra/ My n***as all winning, Allhamdullilah, I be on go ‘cause I come from the Chi/
I’m shootin’ back, I ain’t duckin’ no shots, got power like Samson and I cut off the locks, ah/ Chiraq, uh, Tema, in the cut like I’m Fredo Santana/ Buju Banton I hop in the Beamer, the world is mine I’m Tony Montana
Following his feature on one a notable underground track of the year in Yaw Tog’s “Sore (Remix)” featuring Stormzy, Kwesi has been steadily turning up the heat on his output all year, his breakthrough COLORS performance drawing co-signs from US superstar Cardi B, his sell-out shows in London and New York underlining his nomination for Best International Act at the 2018 BET Awards.
