A fortnight after publishing their third album”Site 15,” R2Bees, the Ghanaian hiplife band comprising Faisal Hakeem (Paedae da Pralem/ Omar Sterling) and Rashid Mugeez (Mugeez) have made their maiden appearance on the Billboard Chart.

A 15-track set which guests the likes of King Promise, Wizkid, Burna Boy, DarkoVibes, Kwesi Arthur, and a host of others, the CD debuted at number 10 in the World Music category.

Since its release, the album has received rave reviews from industry colleagues and fans alike, cementing the BET honourees’ influence as both Pop and highlife experts.

#SITE15: R2Bees flex old muscles for modern fit

Released under the duo’s independent imprint, R2Bees Entertainment, the album arrives 6 years after their critically acclaimed Da Revolution II: Refuse to Be Broke —the 19-tracker that birthed commercial monsters as ‘Ajeii’, ‘Life (Walaahi)’, ‘Odo’ and ‘Bayla Trap’ (That album also saw them earn a nomination at the 2013 BET Awards).

The pair’s 2008 debut offering, “Yawa Gal,” broke them into Ghana’s mainstream — followed by “I Dey Mad”, “Kiss Your Hand”, “T.E.M.A”, “Radio”, and “Africa” —all of which would serve as the crust of their first album, Da Revolution I.
