Hallo zusammen! Today we’re bringing you a Tune for Tuesday from a singer and rapper who is fairly new to the German hip hop music scene. Namika, whose real name is Hanan Hamdi, released her first single Lieblingsmensch in 2015, making her an overnight success and reaching Number 1 in the German Singles Chart. She has now released two albums, Nador and Que Walou, which have both been a success in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. 

Already just from the song’s title you can learn a lovely new word, Lieblingsmensch, which means “favourite human”. We hope you enjoy practising your German comprehension with the rest of this song. To give you a hand, you can find the lyrics online by clicking here, or if you’d like to hear the song played more slowly, we recommend watching the YouTube video below and selecting a slower playback speed by clicking on the settings symbol.
