Donald introduces new album, Dreams, with single, Nkanyezi

Donald has released his new studio album, Dreams, with the second lead single off the album, Nkanyezi, featuring Lady Du.

Donald took to Instagram on Friday, 8 October 2021, to confirm the release of his new single, Nkanyezi, featuring Lady Du. The release of the single coincides with Donald’s sixth studio album, Dreams’ availability for pre-order. The single is a moody up-tempo single, despite its signature amapiano sound which breaks into an afro-pop spin as Donald begins to harmonize with the beat. He had also taken to Instagram the previous day, on Thursday, 7 October 2021, to explain the inspiration of the hook of the song. According to Donald, he sampled Paul Ndlovu’s 1989 hit single, Hita Famba Moyeni.

Moreover, another point of interest is that the song marks the first collaboration between Donald and Lady Du. Though the biggest surprise from the song is not Lady Du’s rap verse, it is rather the amapiano musician showcasing her vocal range as she harmonises with Donald. The two have tapped the song as the anthem for summer weddings in the coming new season, which is emphasised through the flirtatious and doting lyrics between the two.

The single is available for purchase on Apple Music.
