British supermodel, Naomi Campbell, has teamed up with music streaming platform Apple to curate a special playlist in honor of Black History Month.

The list, inspired by her love for Afrobeats features songs from A-list artistes including, Drake, Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Teni, 2Face Idibia, and other regional talents.

In a post, Campbell, 49, spoke about the process behind curating this playlist.

“Afrobeats makes me feel happy whenever I hear it. People just go to another level; it makes you want to dance and move. Burna Boy’s ‘Anybody’ and Wizkid’s ‘Joro’ are songs that give me feelings I can’t get elsewhere. I love the sound of ‘Anybody.’ I love the live sound of the band and Burna’s voice on top of it. It’s a new sound but it sounds like live music, which is rare these days. I’m all about rhythm and bass, and I love the slow build of ‘Joro.’ It’s a sexy, deep, sensual song, like it’s moving forward to reveal something from inside.”

Check out some of the songs below:

1. WizKid – Joro 

2. Burna Boy – Ye

3. Teni – Case

4. Joe Boy ft Mayorkun – Don’t call me back

5. Davido – Fall

6. Tiwa Savage – Owo mi da

7. Olamide – Wo

8. Naira Marley – Soapy
