    Bounty Killer of Jamaica Talks About “Afrobeats Lacking Lyrics,” Utilizing a Burna Boy Song

    The seasoned Jamaican DJ (Bounty Killer) shared his opinions on the burgeoning Afrobeats genre.

    The DJ stated during the conversation that just because Afrobeats has become popular internationally does not mean that Dancehall’s time in that same arena has come to an end. The patois DJ expressed his opinion about Afrobeats, saying that it only consists of tunes and motifs and lacks lyrics.

    To back up his claim, Bounty cited Burna Boy’s smash tune ‘Ye’, claiming that the song lacks lyrical content. He said:

    Afrobeats have no lyrics; they have a lot of melody, grove, and topic. Ye ye ye is not a lyric; it is a topic. The song only has a style, melody, and topic.”

    The Jamaican OG continued by criticizing the current generation of dancehall artists, saying that they are unwilling to include concrete themes (topics) in their music.

    In a similar spirit, Bounty asserted that the solidarity among African artists—which, in his view, Jamaican artists sorely lack—is the reason why Afrobeats is developing at such a rapid rate.
