Out now – Blick Bassy feat Yamê


Blick Bassy unveils new single ‘Mbenda’ feat rising star Yamê, taken from ‘Madiba Ni Mbondi’  Stream

Mbenda marks an extraordinary collaboration between Cameroonian singer-songwriter Blick Bassy and French-Cameroonian artist Yamé, melding the realms of pop and R&B against a backdrop of serene and reflective moods. This collaboration is a showcase of Blick Bassy’s skill in weaving traditional African rhythms with contemporary alternative & indie Folk, alongside Yamé’s diverse influences from R&B, Hip hop, Jazz, and Soul, creating a sound that is both innovative and deeply emotive.

“Mbenda” is characterized by its dreamy synths and driving electronic beats, building to an emotive bridge and climaxing in a finale filled with uplifting, wordless vocals, capturing the essence of sentimentality, thoughtfulness, tenderness, and dreaminess. This track represents a pivotal moment in the careers of both artists, promising a unique and memorable auditory experience for listeners worldwide.
