Halala, Babes Wodumo has gone international again. The Gqom Queen's blazing new single eLamonti is being enjoyed worldwide. Videos of international artist Alicia Keys dancing to the track have been shared on social media.
In the footage, Alicia Keys and her kids are seen getting down to the lit beat on the catchy song with her bae, Swizz, in the background hyping them up in isiZulu.
Babes Wodumo made a triumphant return to the music industry when she dropped her successful Idandokazi album.
Mzansi has absolutely loved the album even though they initially side-eyed Babes Wodumo for featuring her controversial boyfriend Mampintsha in every song yet again.
Twitter user Yungmaverick6 shared a video on Twitter showing Alicia and her kids getting down to the jam and captioned it:
"A video of Alicia Keys and her family dancing to eLamont Babes Wodumo's latest single. Gqom music is international."

"There's a reason why Bey released a song with Busiswa and DJ Lag... coz iGqom is life."
"Just the BEST!"
It's official, the queen of Gqom is back. While many artists go through some trying times in their personal lives, when they drop good music, there is no denying their craft.
In other news, Busiswa is one of the Mzansi artists who were featured on Beyoncé's visual album, Black Is King, which aired on M-Net this past weekend.
The proud artist couldn't help but get emotional when she watched herself on screen in the epic film. Other artists to have featured in the production include Moonchild, John Kani, Connie Chiume and Nandi Madida.

"My queen, Beyoncé, I thank God for your life (and) the vessel you've allowed yourself to be, (as well as) the seats you have given (to) so many at the table. The realisations you've created for millions of young girls, but particularly for girls in my home town of Mthatha, South Africa."
