Renowned Grammy Award-winning artist, Bien, has reached a ground-breaking moment in his career, with the release of his debut solo album, ‘Alusa Why Are You Topless?’

Having charted #1 in Kenya and Top 10 across East Africa, this beautiful project combines soft, intricate production with powerful, honest song writing. Expertly curated under the guidance of executive producer, Afrobeats maestro, Sammy Soso, ‘Alusa Why Are You Topless?’ offers a range of sweet R&B and African choral sounds with a modern Afro-Acoustic twist. Boasting captivating collaborations with renowned artists, the album includes Ms Banks on 'Sex and Marijuana’, Tay Iwar on 'Time Alone' and Ayra Starr on ‘My Baby’.

Ahead of release, Bien’s new music has been resonating with fans. ‘True Love’, taken from Alusa Why Are You Topless? and performed on COLORSXSTUIOS, has already surpassed 500,000 views since release. All of this further solidifies Bien’s status, attesting to his extraordinary talent and his seamless blend of genres.

Alusa Why Are You Topless?’ has been supported by BBC, Capital Xtra and Kiss FM.

Bien-Aimé Baraza, a key member of the acclaimed Kenyan Afro-Pop band, Sauti Sol, has played a pivotal role in shaping the group's success. Over the years, he has garnered international acclaim, winning numerous awards, including a Grammy Award, MTV Africa Music Awards and a BET Award nomination. The band’s breakout album, ‘Live and Die in Afrika’ marked a turning point in their career, reinforcing their status as trailblazers in the East African music scene. After 20 years together, Bien is carving his own path. 

Bien invites the world to his debut album: an extension of himself. ‘Alusa Why Are You Topless?’ redefines musical boundaries and captivates audiences globally. Bien is set to embark on a European tour in March 2024 covering France, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, UK, Denmark, and Sweden. The tour promises to bring the vibrant energy of his maiden release to audiences across the continent.
