TODAY’S CLASSIC TUNE: Youssou N’Dour feat. Neneh Cherry

Although he is currently Senegal’s Minister of Tourism and Culture, legendary Dakar-born singer Youssou N’Dour is most well-known for his adaptation of the traditional mbalax sound and his modern-day griot status. 

With a career spanning over 40 years, N’Dour is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated African musicians in history and has released almost 30 albums.

Despite his international success, 7 Seconds is his only commercially successful and charting single in both the US and several European countries.

The song is trilingual with N’Dour singing in both Wolof and French, and Cherry in English.
