Inspired by a diverse range of artists including Fela Kuti along with Mos Def, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Dilla and Future Islands, musician snny delivers a fragrant addition to your music playlist with his latest single ‘Postmodern Black’. The single premiered via the renowned FLAUNT Magazine, and will feature on snny’s debut album release later this year. Ahead of the new album release date, snny sits over a stream rate of 12 million plays and counting.
The singer comments on the single: “‘Postmodern Black’ is, to me, a sonic manifestation of my own self-reliance. It’s almost a superpower to be able to trust your instincts, and I wanted to render that notion with melody and instruments. As a young African man creating in this era I have a responsibility to my kinfolk to champion independence and fortitude during these divisive times. The title of the song is inspired by an essay written by Bell Hooks in 1990 called Postmodern Blackness.”
