The latest edition of the game FIFA 20 set for release on September 27 sees Zambian raised female rapper Sampa The Great, who moved to the US and made her name in Australia to be among artist in the game soundtracks. She Returned to Africa and debuted Freedom under the roots and carrying the weight of representation to feature on the FIFA 20 soundtracks is just another level. Other artist include Foals, Hot Chip, Major Lazer and Suzi Wu.
EA Sports have a reputation for collaborating with the most exciting artists to soundtrack their game. FIFA soundtracks are integral to the experience of playing the actual game. EA Sports tend to draw their soundtracks from both established and rising global artists who hail from diverse genres.
The song “OMG” off her album The Return, her new album out this month, delves deep into themes of home, heritage, displacement and freedom. Amid its viscous swirl of Afrobeat, R&B and neo-soul is Sampa’s taut and assured rapping, the hard centre of songs that billow out to six, seven, even nine minutes.
