The first playlist of the week features Burna Boy’s new single, “Money Play” which you can listen to here. In a statement, Burna Boy says that Apple Music helps bring music to ears of people from around the world:

“Apple Music is a huge support system for ensuring African music reaches as many ears as possible all over the globe! As a 2019 Apple Music Up Next artist the impact of that honour is still bring felt today! So more grease to them! They’re family now, always love.”

It’s worth noting the timing, last month Apple Music competitor Spotify announced Afro hub, African Heat, Afro Hits, and We Everywhere which, much like Apple Music highlights the best songs from the region.
