At the Beginning of 2020 they released a song Titled on the way’ featuring Jay B a trap artist from Solwezi. The song was their only song of 2020 but, they did have individual feature songs. The song’s lyrical content was relatable by both mainstream and upcoming acts but, mostly the song was talking about the unfairness of the music industry in solwezi which still hasn’t shown any favor to upcoming local artists. We can say the song was food for thought which Hashtag gave the solwezi music industry promoters and event organizers to analyze for a Year now. At the end of 2020 the duo announced they will soon release a song Titled War with a surprise feature who they reviewed to be A.D Adition a now solwezi resident who was once a Danger Zone artist. You might recall A.D Adition from Binel’s Hit song Sulipo and His own song Unyemu which was rocking the air waves.The song title has made people wonder what it will be about. Will this song be a breakthrough for Hashtag? Well, leave this query for you to Judge for the song will be out on the 11thJanuary 2021.We conclude that the Solwezi music industry has so much potential that all music promoters work hand in hand to see that the local acts are pushed till they become main stream.If you are Hearing about Hashtag for the First Time you can stream and download their song the links below Hashtag Zambia ft JayB_ On The way – YouTube
