Harare -South African rapper Cassper Nyovest has roped in American neo-soul musician Anthony Hamilton on his upcoming album “Any Time Now”.
Hamilton is an American recording artist with a rich discography and career best-known through songs like “You’ve got the Love I Need”, which won the 2008 Grammy for Best RnB Performance.
Nyovest’s collaboration with the sultry vocalist will be in his fifth studio album, set for release on September 11, will carry 21 tracks.
Nyovest says all the big names on the project acceded to working with him because of the personal relationship they share.
“Yes sir. The one and only Anthony Hamilton. All the way from North Carolina! Blessed us with amazing vocals on the album. The record is titled ‘Egyptian Cotton’.
“All the features on this album come from personal relationships. Def Jam didn't put together no features for me. Maybe they will in the future and I would love to see that but please don't dilute my hard work on this album,” said Nyovest.
Besides the “Caroline” hitmaker, whose involvement has already generated interest online, Dreamville rapper and J Cole`s protégé Bas also contributed to the album.
Bas is on the song ‘Nobody Knows’, which also features heavyweight South African freestyler Yungsta CPT and Apu Sebekedi.
This will not be the first time Cassper Nyovest will be featuring American artists. In 2016 he released the single “48 to LA” with Los Angeles rapper Casey Veggies.
In 2015, he released a song with top producer DJ Drama titled “Ghetto”.
