Lioness unleashes 'funk' - A fusion of 80s disco and funk

Rukee Kaakunga

Namibia’s reigning queen of Hip Hop, the incomparable Lioness, is back with a bang as she drops her new single ‘Funk’ today. This latest track showcases Lioness’s unceasing evolution as an artist, blending the infectious rhythms of 80s disco and funk into a modern-day masterpiece. 

 In signature style, Lioness pairs her music with captivating visuals to create an immersive audiovisual experience.

 Teaming up with producer Preezy and the talented South West Mastering from Finland, Lioness brings ‘Funk’ to life with a blend of sonic excellence. The accompanying music video, directed by the visionary South African creative Dirk, adds an extra layer of depth to the project, and teases an exciting project that she neither confirms nor denies working on.

 Lioness had this to say about the collaborations on this project: “I’ve worked with Preezy before; his professionalism is truly admirable, and Dirk and I understand each other very well.”

‘Funk’ was born from Lioness’s desire for musical experimentation. A departure from her previous EP, which showcased a fusion of Dance and Afro-Beat, this latest direction is her way of exploring new horizons and reinventing herself. “It takes a little bit of courage to step

outside your comfort zone, but I’ll always be open to experimenting in order to experience personal growth,” Lioness affirms.

 To ensure she delivered her best performance on ‘Funk,’ Lioness took vocal lessons with gospel singer Maranatha. Her dedication to perfectionism shines through in every note and lyric of the track. Remarkably, ‘Funk’ was written in just one day and recorded within two days, a testament to the artist’s unwavering commitment to her craft.

 Get ready to groove and move with Lioness, and experience the infectious energy of this remarkable artist as she continues to push boundaries and redefine the Namibian music scene. ‘Funk’ promises to be a musical journey like no other.
