New Music from Uncle Ricky

One of our favorite improbable viral video stars, Ugandan crooner Uncle Ricky (neé Ochen Kaunda), just regaled us with a new world music dance track. And it veers away from the cloying, ballad-driven, borderline campy Uncle Ricky we've come to know and love. But that's not a bad thing. Ricky sings "BeautifulNICE&lovely" in English and the Kenyan language Luo, over a syncopated dancehall beat. OK, yeah, it's still about love and courtship — Uncle Ricky is a pretty sentimental guy, after all. But we do like all the new ornamentation. See for yourself.
