Angelique Kidjo (featuring Bono & John Legend)

Angelique Kidjo is one of Africa’s greatest musical exports. As her website states: “With joy and passion Angelique embodies the spirit of Africa. Through her music, life and exuberant commitment to advocacy she exemplifies unity, peace and diversity”. On her new album, Oyo, she covers Curtis Mayfield’s 1970 hit “Move On Up”. It has been remixed by Radioclit and features Bono and John Legend. Besides being a great dance song, what is fascinating about this version is trying to decipher Bono’s vocals as they have been altered considerably. Perhaps you can pick out his phrasing. For all world music, U2 and Bono aficionados, this is the Song of the Day.
