Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 release new single with Black Thought, "Kuku Kee Me (Remix)".
"Kuku Kee Me (Remix)" is the first of several new hip-hop versions of songs from Seun Kuti and Egypt 80's 2018 Grammy®-nominated album 'Black Times', in collaboration with Black Thought—co-founder/MC of Jimmy Fallon's "The Tonight Show" house band The Roots.
This lead single perfectly marries the two artists' unique but global perspectives, combing funky beats and blistering verses to share the message of "people power" in the world today.
The track is an official soundtrack selection for "FIFA 23".
"Kuku Kee Me (Remix)" follows the recent release of two songs from Seun Kuti and Egypt 80's upcoming album, "Love And Revolution" and "Emi Aluta".
These tracks were recorded live at Clout Studio, the legendary premises of Cool FM 96.9 on Victoria Island in Lagos.
They last worked with Black Thought on Common's single, "When We Move", which debuted worldwide for UN World Oceans Day before a performance on "The Tonight Show", with footage of Seun at The New Afrika Shrine in Lagos intercut with Common, Black Thought, and The Roots live on-stage in New York.
Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 are currently on tour across the US and Europe through November, show schedule here!!!
