Oliver Heldens and Shungudzo reunite for euphoric release, ‘Freedom for my People’
Oliver Heldens has teamed back up with American-Zimbabwean vocalist Shungudzo for what could be their most riveting release yet, “Freedom for my People.” The song saw its conception from an Acapella poem by Shungudzo, who wrote the piece in March when lockdowns began worldwide.
“Freedom For My People” transports the listener to another world in the introduction, drawing on tribal influences, that then make way for an energetic piano line and production to take over. Delivering a drop nothing short of euphoric, the track utilizes Shungudzo’s vocals in adding to the grounding, yet ethereal energy.
Heldens and Shungudzo teamed up in 2018 for “Fire In My Soul,” which has since amassed over 100 million streams. There is no doubt that “Freedom for my People” will find similar success.
The track is out now via Heldens’ newly minted OH2 Records.
