Sarkodie Has Finally Reveal Highest Album Art, Tracklist & It’s Release Date
Sarkodie is gearing up to release album number four, a project he’s titling, Highest. The upcoming studio release follows Rapperholic (2012), Sarkology (2014) and Mary (2015).
For Highest, the Ghanian rapper is pulling out all the stops with an A1 guestlist. Nigerian acts Flavour, Korede Bello, Moelogo, Yung L, Praiz, Flavour and Jesse Jagz all make the cut along with longtime friend and Ghanaian rapper and producer, Jayso. From his native Ghana, rapper Joey B lends some bars. Rounding up the guestlist is Kenya’s Victoria Kimani, British emcees Bobii Lewis and Big Narstie, and English spokenword poet, Suli Breaks.
Although Sarkodie’s 2017 has been marked by the releases of singles, Gboza, Many Girls (featuring Patoranking), Long Distance (featuring Benji), S.H.O.U.T, Just in Case (featuring Masterkraft) and Painkiller (featuring Runtown), the only one of those to make the album cut is Painkiller, and even it appears as bonus track.
Highest will likely be Sarkodie’s most personal album. The cover art features the Ghanaian rapper carrying his daughter, Adalyn Owusu Addo.
While Highest is expected to drop 8 September, Sarkodie is already hitting the road for an album launch tour. Starting 2 September, Sarkodie takes the Hammerstein Ball Room in New York City to kick off his launch tour with legendary Ghanaian musician, Amakye Dede. The tour will continue with stops in Belgium, Germany and Holland through Septmeber.
