Stream Ghanaian rapper Kwesi Arthur’s debut album ‘Son of Jacob’

Ghanaian rapper Kwesi has finally released his debut album after years of making waves in the game through a standout feature on one of the most viral global tracks of 2021 Yaw Tog’s “Sore” Remix featuring Stormzy, a breakthrough COLORS performance which drew a co-sign from Cardi B and his track “Winning” featuring Vic Mensa.

“Winning” appears on Son of Jacob alongside 14 other songs which boast features from the likes of Joey, Teni, Adekunle Gold, M Hunchom Team Salut and NSG.

Son of Jacob combines an array of production styles ranging from trap to high life and Afrobeats. He makes use of amapiano’s defining log drum on “Mind Over Body”, while drill carries “Winning”. He goes in on “No Regrets”, which is built on a high-pitch vocal sample drenched in reverb and accompanied by piano keys.

In the album’s press release, the artist broke down the album title:

“Jacob, according to the Bible, birthed the tribes of Israel – apparently 12 tribes – and although we come from that, I feel like we are the 13th son that the world has ignored for so long. I am the representation of the 13th son, hence the title Son Of Jacob“.

Kwesi Arthur’s dexterity shines as he sings and weaves smooth Afro-pop melodies on his first official album.
