Hi !

I just came across this song (https://lyricstranslate.com/en/louange-plus-remix-kembo-na-yahwe-lyrics....) into the translations requests. The original poster had defined "French" as the language, but it's definitely not French.
I think it looks like a Bantu language, maybe Lingala to me, but I don't know lots of things about Bantu languages.
The singers are from Republic of the Congo, and several languages are spoken here (Lingala, Kituba, Kikongo etc), if this helps.

Could someone more expert help me define what is this language ?

Thank you

I think it's Lingala, for example: Bako yemba > Chanteront
