If you’ve ever wondered what it would sound like if Theophilus London, Thundercat, and Chet Faker met up in the studio, the result would probably sound a lot like “Gold Chains,” the latest single coming from Ghanaian-Australian artist Genesis Owusu.
This is the last single from the up and coming rapper-singer before his debut album Smiling with No Teeth releases on March 5.
In “Gold Chains” Owusu raps about the struggles and challenges he faces despite how good his life may look from afar over a funky bass riff and a distorted guitar motif. The chorus itself is undeniably catchy, Owusu seamlessly transitioning from his rap flow to a smooth falsetto. This will no doubt be the one his fans will be singing along to during his sold-out Australian tour this spring.
Until his album debuts, you can check out “Gold Chains” below, enjoy!
