It’s been a phenomenal year for local music and as the year comes to a close, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what has been a phenomenal past 12 months. SA Gossips has shortlisted the top 10 South African best songs in 2017. In that time, South African music (across all genres) has proven to be ground-breaking and the quality of music produced in that space of time has been world-class. As the year comes to a close, we’ve picked our 10 favourite local tracks of 2017.
10) Mi Casa – Nana
With every album, Mi Casa has proven that they’re an incredible dance act but with their new album ‘Familia’, the group stepped away from the house sound that dominated their career and took traditional latin sounds and put their own unique spin on it. ‘Nana’, however, found a balance and was a great single to lead fans into the new sound they experimented with. J’Something (who also had a massive year) gave another smooth vocal performance and the excellent writing paired with the familiar production and vocal performance helped ‘Nana’ become one of the most-played local songs this year.
