Fuse ODG – Azonto (UK Offical Video)
Fresh from the massive UK chart success of “Antenna”, Afrobeats pioneer Fuse ODG is back with an even bigger follow-up!
The new single “Azonto” is a huge hip-swaying, toe-tapping slice of fun with the same blend of West African and hip-hop influences that gave “Antenna” its unique sound and propelled it to number 7 in the UK chart.
Inspired by a trip to Ghana where everyone seemed to be doing the Azonto — a dance which involves a signature knee-swivel and the opportunity to remote-control your partner – Fuse ODG brought Ghanaian hip-hop producer Killbeatz and guest MC Itz Tiffany over to London to record the single.
The viral video took off immediately and has racked up over 10 million views to date. Home-shot videos featuring fans and celebrities doing the Azonto dance started popping up across the Internet.
Combining African percussion, crisp hip-hop production and exultant pop synths with positive, uplifting lyrics – “Azonto” is a sure-fire New African smash.
