PG 18 – Today, Moonchild Sanelly – South Africa’s “Queen of Gqom” – is announcing her forthcoming EP Nüdes, out September 11th via Transgressive Records (Gallo Records in South Africa).
The project is set to position her as one of the year’s greatest breakout artists, with her electrifying music and unique style ready to take on a global audience.
The EP announcement follows Moonchild Sanelly’s feature in Beyoncé’s Black Is King visual album for the song “MY POWER”. The track is originally from The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack, and also features Tierra Whack, Nija, Busiswa, DJ Lag, and Yemi Alade. The song is one of the album’s standout tracks, with The FADER noting it “emanates so much dynamic energy.”
Fearless, inclusive and a lot of fun, Moonchild Sanelly is only just getting started. Her iconic personal style combined with an outspoken approach to female sexual empowerment has earned her collaborations with Beyoncé, Die Antwoord, Gorillaz, Diplo, Wizkid and Ghetts and built her a devoted fanbase, celebrated recently with her body-positive #thunderthighschallenge on TikTok.
