Sam Blacky and Niniola Join Forces for Soulful Single, “Ronaldinho”

Sam Blacky's transition into globally-inspired music has led to some of her best work to-date. This time around, she's outdone herself by joining forces with Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Niniola for a soulful new track, "Ronaldinho."

Out now via Easier Said, the song is a masterful showing from both Blacky and Niniola, who have cooked up a summer hit befit for a club, festival or trip to the beach. The four-on-the-floor beat is peppered with nuance, beautifully incorporating Niniola's stunning voice for an experience that's both spiritual and uplifting. 

However, the track isn't simply just a club-ready showcase. With lyrics inspired by the iconic footballer Ronaldinho, it holds deeper meaning for both Blacky and Niniola, the former's adoration of Afro-house flourishing while the latter's Nigerian roots bloom with visceral storytelling.

"As the years have passed, my passion has become more and more integrated with what we know as Afro house," Blacky said in a press release. "When the opportunity came up to work with one of the original, most iconic singers in that realm, all the way from Nigeria, there was no question. I heard what Niniola had done with the vocals for 'Ronaldinho' and knew I had to make this song with her. Having someone who is such an amazing storyteller, with such an incredible voice, who has lived this life through and through brings an entirely different message and meaning to the music."
