Simi, Adekunle Gold – Happy Birthday
A simple song of prayer to celebrate the first birthday of the couple’s daughter.
Easily enjoyed by all due to their vocal prowess, production and lyrics.
Amaarae – Butterfly
Talk about a vocal smooth as silk, flowing well a mid-tempo beat causing a rhythmic sway of the hips.
Then you are talking about Amaarae’s new track “Butterfly”.
Same Amaarae on what seems like a slow tempo enough to cause an uncontrollable movement of your body.
Mr Eazi – Rotate
This new dancehall sound of Mr Eazi is definitely one that fans will have to love.
With catchy melodies and dope lyrics, Mr Eazi went all in on this track which will definitely rule the dance floor for a while.
“She want some, she want some
She wanna dance alkayida and azonto
I give some, I give some
So she said she wanna come collect some
Her hips oh, her hips oh
Be the one wey dey cause eclipse…”
Lojay and Sars – LV N ATTN EP
Headlined by track 3 which featured Wizkid himself, this five tracked Ep has stolen the hearts of fans under 24hours.
“Champagne stripper, real gold digger
She need Mulla, big bag biller
Waist on wicked, laps grown thicker (Oh my girl)
One night lover, blood and fire
Turn my balance to small boy dollar…”
The Ep evokes strong emotions with its lyrics and production, infusing afropop sound with different other sounds to make it enjoyable.
Speroach beats, Peruzzi, Mayorkun – Constantly
Finally, Mayorkun can stop choking us with this track.
An amapiano sound produced by Speroach with vocals from Peruzzi and Mayorkun making it highly addictive due to the wordplay, catchy lyrics and cool production.
Billie Eilish- Lost Cause
Finneas dipped this song in bass and Billie came much lighter on this. Although this felt off her usual dark lyrics, it still had the same Billie Eilish-like melody.
The track talks about moving on from a regretful relationship and making the other person realize he is a loser.
This comes in preparation for her forthcoming album “Happier Than Ever”.
H.E.R – Change
This comes as one of the educative tracks for the Netflix Series — We the People— a series that educates people on the basics of rights and citizenship through upbeat tracks by various popular artists.
“…don’t have to wait for someday just to have change
No, you’re never too young to make a difference
You have the power to be an active citizen.”
H.E.R did justice to these by talking about how everyone can make a change regardless of age or status.
Nasty C – Best I Ever Had
Consistent cadence. Great flow. Insane instrumental. This is one of the best I’ve had this week.
“I’m tryna be mellow
but she text me some Othello shi*
I tell her “be level” but she ghetto and she gotta hella lip
Two investigations in a day, I don’t tell her shi’
I say girl your skull just like your ass that shi is hella thick
She know I can’t tell her sh*t cause she bad
P***sy moist sabroso, she the best I ever had”
As you’ve suspected from the title, Nasty C talks about one of his flings. He assorts the lyrics with a little bit of spanish.
Tems – Ordinary People (cover)
Remember this John Legend’s track from 11 years ago?
“boy, I’m in love with you / this ain’t the honeymoon / past the infatuation phase…”
Tems gives those who know the track a nostalgic yet new feel of the original song. And for those who haven’t listened to the original version, this feels like the best thing you’ll hear in many years to come.
Young Jonn & KiDi- off you
“no be say I no like mango
no be say I no like orange oh
But I for like fruit salad oh, cause my baby na all in one”
This is far from the best of love songs you’ve listened to. But it remains a worthy listen because of the melody and dope instrumental. Kudos, Young Jonn.
