    APPLE MUSIC LAUNCHES EIGHT NEW AFRICAN PLAYLISTS

    Apple Music has added eight new playlists to its collection, as part of Apple Music Africa’s vision to represent all regions, genres, and scenes across Sub-Saharan Africa.

    The music-streaming giant boasts a catalog of over 100 million songs. The latest added playlist includes Hits Afrique, Afro Folk, Bongo Flava, Africa’Jazznation, Afro-Fusion, Rap Ivoire, Afrikaans in Spatial Audio, and Afrobeats in Spatial Audio.

    Hits Afrique brings together the biggest tracks from across Francophone Africa, while Afro-Folk combines elements of African storytelling with neo-soul and alternative sounds.

    Bongo Flava showcases tracks that fuse Western modes of R&B and hip-hop, dancehall, Afrobeats, traditional Taarab, and Dansi sounds, while the new Rap Ivoire playlist highlights Côte d’Ivoire’s burgeoning hip-hop scene and reflects the new realities of urban life.


    Afro-Fusion brings together the sonic traditions of styles like Soukous and Ndombolo with R&B, pop, jazz, and hip-hop. By the same token, Africa Jazznation houses a cross-section of contemporary African Jazz, alongside notable collaborations that transcend the continent’s borders.

    And finally, Apple Music has also launched Afrobeats in Spatial Audio and Afrikaans in Spatial Audio playlists, creating an immersive listening experience and featuring premiere artists in each genre.

    In addition to these new offerings, Apple Music has announced the upcoming launch of a new app dedicated to providing users with an extensive classical music catalog later this month.
