Tanzanian star Diamond Platnumz features on Alicia Keys’ latest album titled, ALICIA.
Platnumz’ influence is clear as the song, titled “Wasted Energy,” is a far cry from what is usually expected from the “If I Ain’t Got You” singer.
Taking cues and influence from reggae, afropop and the bongo flava that the Tanzanian star is known for, “Wasted Energy” speaks of a lover in a relationship with someone who intentionally ignores their needs and desires.
“This is so deep. Because I feel like I have, for the first time, been most fully myself now. In the beginning, I was very myself. I really was. Although I was unsure of this crazy world that I was in and I definitely didn’t know the rules or how to do it or exactly what I was doing, I was very sure of myself. I knew that I was a young woman. I’m boyish. I’m not trying to be all pretty and girly. I got my piano. I got my songs. I got my braids. Don’t try to make me do this. Don’t talk to me about that. Don’t bring me no flower dresses and sh-t. This is me. Take me or leave me, I don’t care.”
