'Alusa Why Are You Topless?' Bien finally drops debut solo album
Prominent Sauti Sol member Bien-Aime Baraza has dropped his much-anticipated debut album a week after concluding the group's two-part farewell concerts.
The album, titled 'Alusa Why Are You Topless', is a seismic earworm which pivots between exploration of his unique Kenyan touch and a willingness to embrace global diasporic sounds.
An ambitious yet extremely finessed record, ‘Alusa Why Are You Topless' contains all manner of highlights as Bien explores various themes consistent with his chequered Sauti Sol discography.
The 16-track album, a sign of the Sol Generation kingpin’s creative confidence, sees the beloved crooner collaborate with some known and unknown names including Nigeria's Ayra Starr, Ms. Banks, Scar Mkadinali and Britain's ‘Got Talent’ prodigy Sarah Ikumu.
Bien, who has been heavily promoting the album, announced on social media that the album is now available worldwide, inviting fans to take a listen and comment their favorite song.
"My debut album out worldwide! Go run it and let me know your fave jam. Drop your flag while at it!" he wrote on Instagram.
Many of Bien's compatriots, fellow collaborators and music contemporaries also took to the comment section to congratulate the 'Inauma' singer.
Tanzania's Harmonize, Ghana's Camidoh, Nameless, Khaligraph Jones, Okello Max and Karun are some of the famous names who congratulated the singer on the musical achievement.
