Struggler auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Struggler is the second studio album by Australian musician Genesis Owusu, released on 18 August 2023 through Ourness.[1] The album was supported with a world tour, across North America, Europe and Australia between October and December 2023.[4]

At the 2023 ARIA Music Awards, the album won Album of the Year, Best Independent Release and Best Hip Hop/Rap Release and was nominated for Best Produced Release, Best Engineered Release and Best Solo Artist.[5][6] At the 2023 J Awards, the album was nominated for Australian Album of the Year.[7] The album was nominated for the 2023 Australian Music Prize.[8]

At the AIR Awards of 2024, the album was nominated for Independent Album of the Year and Best Independent Hip Hop Album or EP, while the album was nominated for Independent Publicity Team of the Year and Independent Marketing Team of the Year.[9]

"Survivor" was added to the tracklisting on 1 December 2023.

Content

In a press statement upon announcement in May 2023, Owusu said, "The struggler runs through an absurd world with no 'where' or 'why' at hand. Just an instinctual inner rhythm, yelling at them to survive the pestilence and lightning bolts coming from above. A roach just keeps roaching."[4]

As with Owusu's previous album, Smiling with No Teeth, Struggler has been described as incorporating elements from a wide variety of genres. Timothy Monger of AllMusic observed a "collision of experimental post-punk, rap, and R&B",[10] while Wesley McLean of Exclaim! described the album as "amalgamating elements of post-punk, R&B, hip-hop, funk, new wave, psychedelic rock and more".[11] Tracks such as "See Ya There" and "Tied Up!" were stylistically compared to the work of Prince.[10][11]

Struggler received a score of 82 out of 100 on review aggregator Metacritic based on eleven critics' reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".[12] Sophie Williams of NME considered Struggler "the work of an artist giving power to some of his most radical sonic ideas. Songs don't often build to a crescendo, they begin there" as "Owusu's stylistic choices are both unexpected and impressive, visiting all corners of his eclectic taste".[14]

Reviewing the album for AllMusic, Timothy Monger claimed that, "Owusu could have gone any number of ways on his sophomore set, but it's a testament to his artistic conviction that he chose to make something so risky and complex. Even better, he pulled it off."[10] Shaad D'Souza of The Guardian contrasted it to Owusu's "brilliant debut" album Smiling with No Teeth as "an ill-defined retread that plays it too safe" and "comparatively mild, Owusu-Ansah seemingly riffing and stalling in hope of a grand set piece that never arrives".[14]

Consequence ranked Struggler 37th on its list of the 50 Best Albums of 2023.[15]

Struggler

Genesis Owusu auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Kofi Owusu-Ansah (born 1998), known by his stage name Genesis Owusu, is a Ghanaian-Australian rapper and singer from Canberra. He is the younger brother of fellow hip hop rapper, Kojo Owusu-Ansah p.k.a. Citizen Kay. Owusu's debut studio album, Smiling with No Teeth (March 2021), reached the ARIA Albums Chart top 30. At the 2021 ARIA Music Awards he won four trophies for Album of the Year, Best Hip Hop Release, Best Independent Release and Best Cover Art (latter shared with Bailey Howard).

Early life and education

Genesis Owusu was born Kofi Owusu-Ansah in 1998 in Koforidua, Ghana.[2] His older brother, Kojo (born ca. 1994), is also a rapper who performs as Citizen Kay.[3] The family migrated to Canberra, Australia in 2000.[4][5]

He was dubbed "Genesis" by Kojo in primary school, who told his friends that his younger brother is Kofi: "his friends were like 'oh, what's your brother's name?' and he said 'Coffee' and they just didn't believe him, for whatever reason. So he just apparently made Genesis up on the spot, and since then it's just stuck."[6] Owusu completed a Bachelor of Journalism at the University of Canberra in 2018.[6][7]

Career

2015–2019: Career beginnings and Cardrive

Musician Citizen Kay is Owusu's older brother, and he decided to feature his younger brother, among other relatives, on "Family Ties", a track on his album With the People (October 2015).[8][9] Kay explained that "Family Ties"

… is a song about the appreciation of my family and how they've played parts in who I am, both as a person and as a writer/artist. It seemed fitting to get fellow rapping family members on the verses.[8]

The pair then performed and recorded as the Ansah Brothers and in 2015 released an extended play (EP), Polaroid.[10] Fellow Canberra rapper Kirklandd took notice and wanted the younger Owusu on his track "We On", which was first issued as a single in August 2016 and then appeared on Kirklandd's September 2016 four-track EP, The Visions Minitape.[11][12]

From these experiences, Owusu gained confidence, connections, and fans enough to encourage him to try a solo career. In June 2017, he released his seven-track debut EP, Cardrive.[13] BMA Magazine's Matt Parnell wrote that

the throaty, deep voice, the swagger-infused flow and menacing, jazzy beats give each track a distinctive flavour. Additionally, the polished sound and confidence with which each tune is presented gives the sound an experienced feeling that belies the age of the artist.[13]

The single "Sideways", released in September, includes lyrics in Twi, a dialect of Akan.[6] It received national exposure on youth radio Triple J. Owusu toured Australia's east coast to promote it.[14] Of "Sideways", i-D's Isabelle Hellyer wrote

Where [Owusu's] older work would flit between jazz and hip hop, 'Sideways' synthesises both genres into sound of his own.[14]

The singer rejected the archetypical objectification of women by hip hop artists with his second single, "Awomen Amen" (2018), and explained, "As a rapper, I never used to hear those kinds of messages... it was something that always bothered me."[7] He released a double A-sided single, "WUTD"/"Vultures" early in 2019, which Caitlin Medcalf of Purple Sneakers reviewed, "[WUTD is] a smooth, RnB track I guarantee will never get out of your head and, 'Vultures', a wavy rap journey... [his] vocals match the mood with a drawling vocal melody and a light flow that never once feels sharp, but simply goes with the flow."[15] On 3 July 2019 Owusu performed as an opening act at 5 Seconds of Summer's sold-out benefit concert in Sydney.[16] "WUTD" was featured on an ad for Bose noise-cancelling headphones in October 2019.[17]

2020–2021: Smiling with No Teeth

Owusu's debut studio album, Smiling with No Teeth, was released on 5 March 2021. The album peaked at number 27 on the ARIA charts. In July, a deluxe version was released titled Missing Molars (SWNT Deluxe).[18] The album went on to win several awards, including ARIA Award for Album of the Year and Australian Music Prize.

2022–present: "GTFO" and Struggler

On 20 July 2022, Owusu released "GTFO", alongside its Rhett Wade-Ferrell directed video. It is Owusu's first single of 2022.[19]

On 19 May 2023, Owusu released "Leaving the Light", the lead single from his second studio album, Struggler, which was released on 18 August 2023.[20]
