There's no doubt that Black Coffee is one of South Africa's biggest exports - creating quality beats, impactful collabs, and jams that give us life.
Today, Friday, 5 February sees his new ‘Subconsciously’ officially out!
On Saturday, 23 January 2021, following the big announcement that ‘Subconsciously’ had already garnered more than 100 million streams before its full release, Carl Wastie connected with the mega-DJ to congratulate him, look back at his career thus far, and get the 411 on what's still to come.
Black Coffee exuded inspiration as he spoke about mindset, South African talent across the board, and his next goals.
As a mega-DJ of Black Coffee's level, it's to be expected that he rubs shoulders with some big names - but nothing could prepare us for some of the names that were casually dropped, as the South African star made his debut interview appearance on the multiple award-winning Kfm Top 40 with Carl Wastie.
Now that the whole album is out, we can now listen to the song 'Flava', which Black Coffee says is his favourite on the album. You’ll also never guess which international producer wanted the track from Black Coffee! (answer revealed in the podcast below)
Meanwhile, ‘Never Gonna Forget’, featuring American DJ Diplo and musician, Elderbrook, is already a hit among fans, including captain Siya Kolisi and his wife, who we've enjoyed watching dance to the track on Instagram.
But it's also a favourite of Kfm 94.5 listeners, as on Saturday, 23 January 2021, it officially entered the Kfm Top 40 with Carl Wastie as a hotshot new entry at no.13 - a special surprise that Black Coffee was thrilled about.
A week later, on Saturday, 30 January 2021 it was up 5 more places to no.8. Where will it land this weekend? Tune into the Kfm Top 40 with Carl Wastie to find out!
