Aethan Music continues to be in his bag with each record he churns out. His latest “Call On Me” being proof of this.
The surprise collaboration features Aethan Music (born Anthony Ssewabuga)’s long-term collaborator A Pass (in case you might recall the LP ‘African Yayo’, he produced a couple of tracks on it), Melissa Mulungi, and Lagum the Rapper.
“Call On Me” as a crazy Afropop record gets even more sultry upbeat thanks to 25-year-old German-born & raised singer & Philanthropist Melissa Mulungi’s gorgeous vocals which give it a fleeting foundation. A Pass follows suite bringing the “champion bad man bars” and later Lagum The Rapper swoons in a Tory Lanez type of voice and raps in reassurance of their love interest that he will not let go.
The song shares a stripped-down arrangement (a mix of vocals and a soft choppy Afrobeat) and carries carefree and plenty optimistic vibes.
“Call On Me” is a major addition to Aethan Music’s essentially diverse music catalog. It takes on an Afropop direction, unlike the hip-hop chops the record producer is best known for. He had most recently released “Kisa 2.0” featuring Sheila Wya and Buke Tally (a rendition of Traditional Runyankole Hymn ‘Natamba’) with a saxophone and amapiano layer over its production.
In a nutshell, a song like “Call On Me” is that collaboration that we didn’t know we really needed. As we continue to clamor for A Pass’ new album, the joint efforts like “Omu”, and “Muunda” continue to keep us company.
