Last year when Masego dropped Lady Lady he set the world a blaze in many ways. With over a million streams on his Tiny Desk episode and a successful run of tour dates, he’s back with a new song that celebrates body positivity. “Big Girls,” inspired by a recent trip from the artist to Kenya is and R&B meets reggae infused jam that’s hard to dislike and easy on the ears.
Opening a with a jazz inspired upright bass, the beat comes in as the rhymes begin and open the track up. The use of backing vocals alongside the hip hop inspired verse is wondrous while the R&B touches within the track give it a life that makes it pop with vibrancy. There’s a future sound here, combining multiple genres to craft a true banger, and hold your attention from open to close.
The song can be streamed on all platforms or purchased in all digital music shops. Masego will be on tour beginning September 22 in Las Vegas, NV at Life is Beautiful Festival until December 31 in Johannesburg, South Africa at AfroPunk Johannesburg.
