“Black Orpheus” is the first track to come off Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X’s collaborative album Zulu Guru. The single is a smooth, soulful production topped off with a dose of afro-beat that adds a Caribbean vibe to the track. The duo’s look and sound represent another new avenue that hip-hop and R&B may be headed, that dispels from the usual robotic drums that we hear on the radio every day. Zulu Guru is available for pre-order now on Ninja Tune and is set to be released October 15. Stream the single below and download it for free here.
