Music show: Snoh Aalegra, En Vogue & Maître Gims
Swedish-Iranian singer-songwriter Snoh Aalegra has worked with Common, been sampled by Drake and was mentored by Prince, so it’s no wonder that her star is on the rise. The up-and-comer talks to Richelle Harrison Plesse about her debut album’s velvety, nostalgic sound and what makes Sweden a hit-making factory (ABBA, Roxette, Ace of Base, anyone?).
We also take a listen to the week’s new releases including an electrifying comeback from legendary 90s RnB girl group En Vogue and a bumper 40-track disc from Congolese chart-topping rapper Maître Gims.
