This honor of being Soulified’s Favorite Group/Collaboration of 2009, can only go to The Foreign Exchange. The Foreign Exchange is made up of singer/songwriter Phonte and producer Nicolay. The sheer number or artists/groups that they work with, is only surpassed by the quality of their productions. Even though their second album “Leave It All Behind” (download sampler), was released in October of 2008, it set the tone for them in 2009. Here are some of the projects that came out this year.
To add to the greatness, they were nominated for “Best Urban/Alternative Performance”, for their song “DayKeeper (featuring Muhsinah)” , from the album “Leave It All behind”. All this from two artists on two different parts of the world, bringing real meaning to the word collaboration.
