Electrik Red shakes it to the ground on “Put Ya Money On It (Africa),” a tribal-influenced banger produced by Midi Mafia. The song is a teaser of what’s to come from the foursome’s sophomore album How to Be a Lady: Volume 2 and not their first single. “This was a nod to our roots,” Binkie tells Rap-Up.com.

Binkie, Naomi, Leslie, and Sarah have been writing with Young Money’s Shanell for the project, on which they explore new territory. “Musically we’re gonna take some more risks and kinda go for an international sound,” Binkie told Amerie when she interviewed her at Rap-Up’s Pre-BET Awards Lounge.

Binkie, Naomi, Lesley, and Sarah are working once more with Tricky Stewart and The-Dream, but also bringing some new collaborators into the mix.
