Manu WorldStar has released his second single “Pressure” featuring Mariechan. The single comes off his critically acclaimed debut album Molimo. “Pressure” follows the lead hit single “Choko” which was released last year in September. The South African-born Congolese Afrofusion artist has come back with a love song and collaborates with R&B singer, Mariechan.
“Pressure” is an easy-going song that speaks to meeting expectations in a relationship. The single has an unforgettable hook and Mariechan’s smooth vocals adds a delightful mood to it. The songstress’s addition to “Pressure” is fitting for the former member of the once popular South African R&B girl band, Jamali. Manu WorldStar is admittedly timely with “Pressure” dropping in the month of love and Valentine’s Day just around the corner. The track is a stark contrast to “Choko” but offers just what is needed right now.
Manu WorldStar was featured on Apple Music’s Africa Rising program last year in September. Molimo has reportedly reached 250 thousand streams within the first week of its release. The success of the debut album sets the tone for what’s next for the 25-year-old this year. “Pressure” is pitched to become another success.
