I thought I had a wrongly ripped mp3 of this song but even when I listen it on Spotify I can hear a jump/interruption/scratch between 4:07 - 4:09 it's really annoying, why this happened to the song? was a record studio mistake?
Of all the versions that I found on the Spotify:
- Album 7 Seconds: The Best Of Youssou N'Dour
- Album Man
- Album Africa Greatest Hit Songs, Vol. 1
- Album The Guide (Wommat)
I failed to hear any scratches cuts/jumps, including on the 4:07-4:09. The track seems to play correctly without any glitches.
The official YouTube VEVO seems using the cut version given its duration (4:31 on YouTube vs 5:05 on Spotify), and the corresponding timestamp seems to be at 3:55. However, the track also seems to play correctly without any glitches/jumps.
Thus, my conclusion is: the ripped MP3 seems to be corrupted, and then it got uploaded to the YouTube (never trust unofficial uploaders).
