New Track: Ilhame – “French Kiss” ft. Rapper Big Pooh

 

Been awhile since we posted about the French-Moroccan singer Ilhame.

First was Bob Marley cover with Ky-Mani Marley, and this time, Ilhame speeds it up on the coy new track “French Kiss” featuring Rapper Big Pooh. This is going to get stuck in our heads, easily.

Sit tight for more music that’ll stick to your ear just as nicely with her upcoming album, Just Wish It, which includes collaborations with T3 of Slum Village, Nicolay, and Shafiq Husayn, amongst others. We’re definitely with it.

Video: Ilhame – “Still Waiting” ft. Ky-Mani Marley (Bob Marley Cover)

 

Now based in LA, French-Moroccan vocalist Ilhame (pronounced “Eelum”) has got a very special treat for us Bob Marley lovers out there. “Still Waiting” is her cover of Bob’s “Waiting In Vain,” which also includes an breathtaking guest feature from Ky-Mani Marley.

The gorgeous video above is directed by our good pal Andre Power, and follows the darling Ilhame on a dreamy sequence of her day. Oh, and did we mention that the song is in French and Arabic?!

Look out for Ilhame’s debut album Just Wish It to drop this year – it’s going to feature Nicolay, Shafiq Husayn, T3, and Big Pooh, just to give you a little taste.

The latest video off their third album, Authenticity, from The Foreign Exchange has left a few fans disturbed, with a much darker story than usual. It might be menacing but it’s still in the style of The Foreign Exchange and it’s just as genuine.
