Ghanaian music duo, R2Bees, are set to release ‘Site 15’, their third studio album next week.
The project arrives 5 years after their critically acclaimed Da Revolution II: Refuse to Be Broke â€”the 19-tracker that birthed commercial monsters as â€˜Ajeiiâ€™, â€˜Life (Walaahi)â€™, â€˜Odoâ€™ and â€˜Bayla Trapâ€™ (That album also saw them earn a nomination at the 2013 BET Awards).
Site 15 references the Tema block the cousins â€”Faisal Hakeem (Paedae da Pralem/Omar Sterling), and Rashid Mugeez (Mugeez) grew up in.
Active in music since 2007, R2Bees came to nationwide attention with their 2008 debut offering, â€œYawa Galâ€, followed by â€œI Dey Madâ€, â€œKiss Your Handâ€, â€œT.E.M.Aâ€, â€œRadioâ€, and â€œAfricaâ€ â€”songs which would serve as the crust of their first album, Da Revolution I.
While this is their first joint body of work in a significant while, the band, multiple-award-winners, have published endless chart-topping hits including â€œMakomaâ€, â€œPlantain Chipsâ€, â€œTonightâ€, and â€œCould This Be Loveâ€, and appeared as guests on other projects. In September 2016, Omar Sterling, the rapper half of the group, published Victory Through Harmony, an 18-track mixtape to critical reviews.
