AKA's collaboration with Anatii is getting airplay in America.

Their track 'Don't Forget To Pray' premiered on Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio on Thursday.

The show's host Ebro "Old Man Ebro" Darden introduced listeners to the South African hip-hop giants. 

"AKA and Anatii are huge in Africa's hip-hop scene, and they joined forced. This is their second single, and follows their hit single '10 Fingers', " he said on Beats 1 Radio. 

The track is off their joint album, 'Be Careful What You Wish For'. '10 Fingers', which was released earlier this year, is still going strong on the  iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap Top 10 Chart. 

AKA and Anatii gave Beats 1 Radio props for shining the spotlight on their music. 

"We want to send a big shout out to Beats 1. This is an unprecedented move, showing love to African music, especially African hip-hop music," AKA said on the show.

He also hinted that his new album could drop later this year. 

The single was released a day before his former nemeses Cappser Nyovest dropped his new album, 'Thuto'.

'Don't Forget To Pray' is already the number one song on iTunes in South Africa, while 'Thuto' is at the top of the album chart.

But AKA says he was not trying to steal Cassper's spotlight.

Both 'Thuto' and 'Don't Forget To Pray' were trending in South Africa on Friday. 

But only one of them is on the the Coca-Cola Top 40 chart with Carol and Ricky. 

AKA's 'The World Is Yours' is currently sitting at number six on the chart.
