Grammy nominated sister duo Les Nubians premiere a new track today from the forthcoming album Nü Revolution. “Les Gens” (People) features Brooklyn-based Ghanaian MC Blitz the Ambassador, a perfect fit for the group’s relentlessly enchanting and energized mix of R&B, hip-hop, African music and other world elements (stream: http://snd.sc/e2yrZc).
With this song, Paris-born sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart tackle the subject of gossip and soussou (rumors), as the rastas say. “Gossips and are little mundane poisons. What people say about you is deformed from a mouth to an ear, to a mouth to another mouth! With Blitz the Ambassador, we don't believe the hype and remember that a new breed of African is born to tell the people the truth,” states Hélène. "Don't listen to people, they lie," adds Célia.
Les Nubians previously released a stream of the infectious track “Afrodance” (http://snd.sc/f2XuzE) and a video for “Veuillez Veiller Sur Vos Rêves” (J.Period Remix) feat. John Banzaï (http://vimeo.com/16628739).
Les Nubians’ third album, Nü Revolution, drops April 19th via Shanachie Entertainment. It is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.
