6 original African songs that featured in popular Hollywood movies

2 Face – African Queen [Phat Girlz]

2 Face’s African Queen launched a new era of how commercial a song from Africa can be. The monster single caught the world’s attending after its release signalling the rebirth of music on the continent.

When asked about the success of the song, 2 Face in an interview said, “African Queen is one of the most successful songs outside Africa so far. I can say it was a song that really made me as an artist. It was written by me and Blackface. It was just a desire to do a love song to show respect and love for the African woman. That’s how it came up. We wrote the lyrics and melody together.”
