Kwesi Arthur has released his much anticipated studio project called “Son Of Jacob Album“.
Emmanuel Kwesi Danso Arthur Junior, known professionally as Kwesi Arthur, is a Ghanaian rapper, singer and songwriter from Tema, Ghana. He rose to fame in 2017 with the hit single “Grind day” which received wide spread acclaim and a co-sign from rap heavyweights Sarkodie and Medikal.
On his debut album Son of Jacob, Kwesi Arthur taps into his ancestry to offer a representation of contemporary Ghanaian life – replete with its highs and lows. Over 15, tracks the artist born Emmanuel Kwesi Danso Arthur Junior channels his mellow voice while exploring the personal, familial and social.
From the reflective “Silver Spoon”, aspirational “Paper” and bass-heavy “Winning” featuring VIC MENSA, Arthur’s fluidity sees him weave multi-lingual flows between trap basslines, Afrocentric percussion and smooth pop melodies. Showing a musical dexterity, the Tema native crafts jovial lines alongside Nigerian singer Teni on “Celebrate” before enlisting UK-based outfit NSG on the Afroswing “Diamonds Dancing”, blending asokpor and amapiano on “Animal” and infusing highlife on the gospel-tinged closer “Adom”.
In short, the new body of work houses sixteen (16) tracks and got features from Bigg Homie Flee, Joeboy, M Huncho, Teni, Adekunle Gold, Vic Mensa, DayOnTheTrack and NSG.
