Shekere is a single off Yemi Alade’s new album, Woman of Steel. The single features Beninese legend, Angelique Kidjo and was produced by the usual suspect, Dj Coublon.
Dj Coublon made a very bouncy instrumental that started with some highlife string pattern followed by a rhythm that is a thin line between dancehall and afrobeat. The instrumental was perfect for both vocalists. Yemi Alade and Angelique Kidjo delivered so effortlessly like they've been singing together for years. Both of them delivered a smooth yet lively duet.
Yemi and Angelique sang about how they are putting their worries aside and they just want to be happy and dance to the sound from Africa. This is a really good song.
