South Africa’s most exciting emerging artist Tshego has brought it all back to the music after fans have been urging the artist to release new music; ‘No Ties’ is the first single from his debut album, Pink Panther, due for release on 30 August.
Tshego is an exceptional Singer-Songwriter and Producer with a sound that will see you on the dancefloor as well as have you feeling some type of way.
Known for bangers like Hennessy and Garden, he caught the attention of music lovers with his smooth vocals and striking looks.
The versatile musician laces his vocals effortlessly on this joint alongside Limpopo’s favourite, King Monada, who sings in “Khelobkedu” – a Northern Sotho dialect. ‘No Ties’ is a Pop/R&B hit guaranteed to garner the young artist new fans and keep his day ones happy to finally hear new material. This is definitely 2019’s most unexpected collaboration that makes perfect sense.
The Pink Panther teased fans earlier this year with a series titled ‘The Process’ giving a glimpse into the creative process of the album. Pink Panther has been four years in the making with the release being pushed back after the music was stolen. This misfortune or blessing in disguise saw Tshego trying to salvage what he could and going back into the studio to record new music.
“I wrote and produced ‘No Ties’ and thought of who I could collaborate with that people wouldn’t expect; King Monada came to mind and he felt like the perfect fit. Around this time I heard ‘Malwedhe’, that is a dope track! I knew I had to work with him. I dropped him a DM and we started talking. He then chose ‘No Ties’ from the two songs I shared with him. Alie Keys put his things on it and this is the outcome. Monada exceeded my expectations on this one, I am very happy. ‘No Ties’ is still the old Tshego you love, I have just gone through a lot and grown”, says Tshego.
