Sam Blacky Collabs With Grammy-Nominated African Artist Niniola



Powerhouse LA-based DJ/producer Sam Blacky partners with Grammy-nominated African singer-songwriter hailing from Nigeria, Niniola, for their new single “Ronaldinho, which celebrates the former’s love for Afro House and the latter’s Nigerian history in a dynamic, soulful sonic journey. Sam has long loved pushing the boundaries of dance music and breaking music genres’ molds, and over the past few years, it’s become apparent that her true passion lies in creating globally-inspired, dance-worthy records.

“Ronaldinho” is a shining example of this with its undulating, deep basslines, percussive instrumentals, and ethereal melodies courtesy of Sam, while Niniola’s shining vocals truly turn the song into a spiritual listening experience. With the summer festival season just heating up, “Ronaldinho” is about to be heard on the beach, the festival stage, and the club dance floors around the world. The track is out now on Easier Said, which finds Sam exercising her artistic freedom by once again joining a formidable roster of forward-thinking artists such as Barclay Crenshaw, Life on Planets, Maya Jane Coles, Party Pupils, and Todd Terry.

“As the years have passed, my passion has become more and more integrated with what we know as Afro House. When the opportunity came up to work with one of the original, most iconic singers in that realm, all the way from Nigeria, there was no question. I heard what Niniola had done with the vocals for Ronaldinho and knew I had to make this song with her. Having someone who is such an amazing storyteller, with such an incredible voice, who has lived this life through and through brings an entirely different message and meaning to the music.”
