The newly added playlist includes Hits Afrique, Afro Folk, Bongo Flava, Africa’Jazznation, Afro-Fusion, Rap Ivoire, Afrikaans in Spatial Audio and Afrobeats in Spatial Audio.

Hits Afrique brings together the biggest tracks from across Francophone Africa, while Afro-Folk combines elements of African storytelling with neo-soul and alternative sounds.

Bongo Flava showcases tracks that fuse Western modes of R&B and hip-hop, dancehall, Afrobeats, traditional Taarab and Dansi sounds, while the new Rap Ivoire playlist highlights Côte d’Ivoire’s burgeoning hip-hop scene and reflects the new realities of urban life.
