Ghana’s Friction gets big collabo with Grammy award-winning Musician, Skyler Jett

Friday, 17 November 2017 – Friction and Skyler Jett meeting up in Amsterdam for studio recording sessions. Friction teaming up with Skyler Jett (former lead singer of The Commodores and Grammy award-winning vocalist). If you have followed Friction throughout the years (from the days of Ghana’s Legendary Hiplife Group, VIP, now VVIP), you know he is always on the move, always expanding and enriching his music, his music knowledge and his career. Collaborating with artists with different music styles is one way of doing this. And it seems as if soon a new collabo will be out; between Friction and the legendary Skyler Jett.

Skyler Jett has been active in the music industry for years; not only was he the lead singer of the world famous group The Commodores after Lionel Ritchie left, but he has also been collaborating with artists such as Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston. Nowadays he is very active as an activist and peace ambassador, through music projects and humanitarian projects.

The two were introduced to each other by CASiTA, a famous soul singer who is based in Holland and with whom Friction is also working together on a regular basis (check out their lovers rock reggae single ‘I Love You’ which they released together:

Friction and Skyler had a great connection right away and started to plan their collaboration. Skyler, who is at the moment based in Scotland, flew to Amsterdam this week for a couple of studio sessions together with Friction. The two were also caught out in the streets of Amsterdam for a photoshoot and some interviews.

For Friction, teaming up with Skyler Jett is a great opportunity. “Having the chance to work with such a legendary person is more than a blessing. I love Skyler’s vibe and his message of peace, plus his vocal skills are off the hook.”

Skyler is also feeling the vibe of their collaboration. “I am very excited to be teaming up with Ghanaian super star Friction. Our chemistry is awesomely explosive. Once I had a chance to listen to Friction’s music I noticed the positive lyric content with an African reggae-feeling, so I thought to myself; what if we combine that with my social conscious musical style, to create magical grooves together.”

And so it happened. Friction and Skyler are cooking up some conscious groovy music together at the moment and it is a matterof patience till they make us part of their magic!

THE END

All You Need To Know About Worlasi’s Upcoming EP,”Outerlane”.

If there’s one thing Worlasi is best known for, it’s his genre-bending nonconformist sound and thought-provoking lyricism. That’s two separate things, but proof of how the young crooner, gifts the world with double his magic.

The Saw Me hit architect is set to release his third body of work on November 16th 2017. Titled Outerlane, this EP is another step in the producer/rapper-singer’s journey to self-discovery and an exploration of new narratives and reinvented forms of sonic expression.

On this EP, Worlasi challenges himself even more by stepping out of his comfort zone to experiment with different music forms by collaborating with multiple producers; something he has kept to the very minimum. This follows a small number of projects he has worked on with producers outside the usual suspects Qube, Maxi and himself.

2017 has been a good year for Worlasi so far, from the BBC tip as one of the few artiste out of Africa to look out for, his numerous collaborations with everybody that matters in the Ghana music scene such as M.anifest, Sarkodie, E L, Edem, Hammer to name a few, the rollover buzz from his critically acclaimed Nus3 and Uncut mixtapes, to his Coke Studio Africa 2017 participation that saw him remix his Nukata song with Sauti Soul of Kenya and Chidinma from Nigeria.

As a huge fan service and thank you for sticking with me, Worlasi’s Outerlane EP will be the curtain closer for the year and the fireworks to guide every beautiful soul in the world into the bright future that is 2018.

Outerlane is a prelude to Worlasi’s first album. Outerlane promises to be a potpourri of songs to get you through the year and a mix of socially aware lyricism with just the perfect dose of dance ready bangers!

Join Worlasi on the fringes. Anticipate Outerlane!
