Landrick is a popular Angolan singer and songwriter known for his sensual, romantic R&B style that includes light Afro-pop undertones. He first rose to popularity with the 2015 hit single “Me Agarra Só Uhm,” and continued to build on his success both in Angola and Portugal over the coming years through subsequent singles and prominent albums like 2018’s Zolana.
Born Landu Ndombele in the Angolan capital of Luanda, Landrick nurtured his budding talent as a teenager singing in his local Seventh Day Adventist church, where he also began to receive formal training. Over time, he developed his own smooth vocal style that lent itself to the type of romantic R&B balladry he preferred. While living in Portugal, he signed with the Bom Som production company, which issued his debut single, “Me Agarra Só Uhm.” A major hit in Angola, it was included on Landrick’s 2015 album Mr. Confuso, which also yielded other hits like “Fila da Goda” and “Há Mulheres e Mulheres.”
His increased visibility both at home and in Portugal led to a 2017 appearance alongside fellow Angolan singer Anna Joyce on the Portuguese reality show Love on TOP. Returning in 2018, Landrick offered his sophomore album, Zolana, and its bright hit single, “Kuyuyu.” The sultry “Já Quero” appeared in 2019, with the CEF Tanzy collaboration “Teu Panco” arriving a year later.
