'Africa Rising, Angelique Kidjo'
Time magazine calls Angelique Kidjo 'Africa's premier diva' and on her new album OYO, one of the stand-out tracks is a collaboration with Bono and John Legend - not forgetting the horns of Antibalas - for Curtis Mayfield's 'Move On Up'.
You can hear it when you land on Angelique's site.
As the Sunday Times in the UK puts it, 'The Beninese singer's celebration of her musical roots turns out to be a magnificently upbeat marriage of African tradition and western pop.'
