Genesis Owusu has the smile of someone who eats fruit directly from the tree, who laughs at bad jokes because they know they are bad and, above all, who knows that their happiness comes from making others happy. Good Time, Don’t Need You, Wit ’Da Team, and WUTD are serotonin pop. Although the Ghanaian-Australian Kofi Owusu-Ansah does not live on funk bubbles alone. On his album Smile With No Teeth, there is also electro-rap, hot ballads, all-embracing falsettos, open-minded hip-hop or pop-rock for those who consider that Prince, Outkast, The Roots, Cody ChessnuTT and Blood Orange were also in their own way pop-rock. Be that as it may, in whatever style you fancy dressing up Genesis Owusu in, his smile breaks through.
After returning earlier this year with ‘GTFO’, Multi-ARIA award-winning artist Genesis Owusu has shared his latest single, ‘Get Inspired’, ahead of his support slot for Tame Impala’s current Australian tour.
