Stonebwoy

Afro-dancehall star Stonebwoy has dropped his expansive fourth studio album – “Anloga Junction” on 24th April. The album drop coincides with the official video release of lead single “Nominate”, featuring Grammy award winning R&B icon Keri Hilson. The song has been directed by Denzel Williams and styled exclusively by Tommy Hillfiger in the TommyxLewis collection, the video is set in LA with Stonebwoy and Keri playing the roles of casting directors for a beauty pageant.

Speaking on the collaboration, Keri explains, “I love the song we’ve done. I’ve always wanted to feel like this! Working with Stone was also a really nice surprise. It was random how we met & I think the best music is made like this.”

Discussing the concept behind the album, Stonebwoy says, “Where do we acknowledge our true roots and embrace our differences in the diaspora?…Why Anloga Junction?…because creativity has taken a spiritual cause on my journey to get to this present day…Anloga (Alakple, Volta, Ghana) is where this journey really started…”
