The album, Amantle Brown has confirmed will have 13 tracks.

“I started working on the album as early as last year. When looking for whom to collaborate with, I reached out to Gigi Lamayane and she agreed to set up the meeting. Early this year she came to Botswana for radio interviews and we decided to meet up and record the song,” Amantle Brown said.
“As you can imagine the lockdown has affected a lot of my plans, including the release date of the album. I literally had to go back to the drawing table with the team. There is a lot that goes one behind the scenes before releasing an album. I know all eyes are on me now, first of all it has been a while since I released an album and secondly I have to top the first album, and that is pressure on its own,” Amantle Brown further shared.
Targeting a younger audience with her latest offering, Amantle Brown has switched to a more upbeat tempo.
“We decided to take the dance route. Without completely losing our original touch, we have infused Afro Pop and dance beats into my sound,” she said.
Commenting on her recent controversial post about female hygiene on social media Amantle Brown said, “I was trying to give advice to my ladies about hygiene. The truth of the matter is a lot of us ladies have bad smell down there, so I was trying to share with my followers what has worked for me. I wasn’t expecting it to blow up that way. I have since deleted the video. The backlash was really bad.”
