Sarkodie’s fourth studio album dubbed “Mary” worth talking about over and over again due to its high production quality and contemporary influence.
The album, which was released on September 12, 2015 has attracted both local and international attention and even when it wasn’t listed in the last Grammys’ nominations, many critics including myself felt disappointed.
With a massive support from SarkCess Music new signee, Akwaboah on both song writing and live beat production, Sarkodie got everything right about contemporary Highlife music with rap.
From rap to singing, Sarkodie awesomely tweaked 80s Highlife music to suit the generation which prefer Hip-hop/Trap to Highlife. His awe-inspiring performance on “Mary” album and creativity is just unmeasured.
The album is fully packed and if you are a good music listener, you will find it difficult to choose a favourite. Saying ‘good listener’ doesn’t mean fans’ favourites aren’t good – I am referring to technical listeners.
From Akwaboah’s silky vocals to legendary Pat Thomas’s classic baritone, the album was genuinely brewed in the home and origin of Highlife.
Thinkghmusic.com editor, David Mawuli, has listened to the album over 30 times and finally selects his best 5 tracks from the 11-track classic album.
