R2Bees, made up of Pay Day, Mugeez and Under hit the Ghanaian showbiz industry with the singles Ã¢â‚¬ËœI dey MadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœYawa GirlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ last year and instantly became household names.
But the childhood collaborators appear more fulfilled with the launch of the 17-track album Ã¢â‚¬ËœDa RevolutionÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ which has already released songs; Ã¢â‚¬ËœYawa GirlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, I dey MadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœT.E.M.AÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœKiss Your HandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ with new songs; Ã¢â‚¬ËœRadioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœOne more ChanceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœAfricaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. The album features music stars; Wande Coal, Sarkodie, Samini, Kwaw Kese and a host of others.
The well patronized event saw hundreds of music fans and popular personalities Bola Ray, Kwesi Kyei Darkwa (KKD), Amanda Jisseh, DJ Black and music stars; Tinny, Sarkodie, Chemphe, Samini, Kwaw Kese, Tic Tac, Ayigbe Edem, Black Prophet, Quata and many others in attendance.
The launch which was a star-studded affair saw underground and popular stars mounting the open air stage to entertain patrons.
R2Bees in an interview with Myjoyonline.com said the album should have been out a bit earlier but was delayed due to certain challenges. But they now count the delay a blessing because it has enabled them to add new songs to the album.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Certain things didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go our way as we expected and we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t plan the whole thing early – like making music our career. The new song featuring Wande Coal, letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s say if we had released the album somewhere last year, this song wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have been on the album. Every misfortune is a blessing,Ã¢â‚¬Â Pay Day said.
The trio said they are not looking at releasing another album in the immediate. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Every song on this album is a single material, meaning, we just have to take our time and promote the album.Ã¢â‚¬Â
R2Bees look to the future with much enthusiasm, counting on their collective talents to see them through the years, and hope that the sky becomes their first step, and not their limit.
