Being born as a 90s baby, the process of coming of age and crossing over into full-fledged independence comes with a lot of realisations, experiences, scars, emotions and in many cases, blacklisting. It’s a sequence countless millennials and Gen Zs have gone through, and are still currently living.
This is the core of Kae Xander’s dancehall-doused rhythms, an idea he explores sonically in his new single ‘Black Sheep’. Described by Xander as “an Afrofusion confessional,” the riveting story of Black Sheep is mounted on the Jason SKG produced beats that are done up with piano chimes and boppy synth chords, to tell of times prior to the present when he was judgment-free with his parent’s love as a trophy for playing by the books.
Kae Xander’s Black Sheep take a page from young minds everywhere harrowing through the inevitable journey of growth and self-acceptance that comes with unapologetically choosing one’s rules against the precepts of a society that sees life in blacks and whites.
