Not so for Kidjo, who clearly approached this record with different ears than the average Western listener. Even if Byrne, Eno, and the Heads all immediately acknowledged how the album was directly inspired by Fela Kuti and Afro-beat, Remain in Light is not the sound of touristy mimicry or cultural appropriation

By taking on Remain in Light, Kidjo brings her finely honed Afropop sounds to one of the 1980s' most iconic new wave albums, packing just as much of a punch as the Talking Heads ever did-no small feat for most, but all in an album's work for Angélique Kidjo. This album is a stunning, multivalent piece of artistry that hits an anxious and weary world like a light-bearing gift. Remain In Light is one of the most fascinating albums in rock history, and Angélique Kidjo may have just released the definitive version.
