This Cameroonian Party Anthem Might Be West Africa’s Song Of The Year

Don’t sleep on Franko’s “Coller La Petite.”

There are what feel like a million ways for an artist to encourage partygoers to have fun in the club—you can prod them with instructional dance songs, shame them out of standing against the wall, or just make irresistible party anthems. On the high-octane "Coller La Petite," Cameroonian artist Franko does all three, rapping in a mix of French and regional slang. The uptempo track has vaguely trance-y synth lines, over clattering claps and drums. In the month-and-a-half since the official video for the song was uploaded to YouTube, it's emerged as a buzzing global hit, boosted by co-signs from high-profile soccer players like Didier Drogba and Alex Song. Watch the video above, and find a dance partner. You'll want one.
