It was an August for Afrobeats. And it only gets better from here on. This week, Afrobeats frontliners, Wizkid & Burna Boy serve us another hot dish. Also, the young buzzing lads are making magic with intercontinental features.
I won’t pretend that you haven’t listened to this or that you are ignorant of the fact that he featured Buju with some back up vocals by Bella Shurmda on Anoti
But I will tell you that the song with Buju is heavenly and easily the best. Argue with Apple Music.
“If they like make them chop all the tomatoes, them no go ketchup”
Don’t ask me who he was referring to cos me self wan know, but I have a feeling that the artist doesn’t have a Grammy yet 👀👀
Back to the song, mid tempo classic Burna track with sprinkling of vocals from Don himself.
Talking about the Don,
“When you go win Grammy?
Question, wey dey no get the answer”.
Bella Shurmda ain’t one of my favourites without a reason. Even Wizkid rates him highly.
The voice, lyricism, vibe, spirituality and everything mehn, you just gotta love.
You can help but to fall in love with Bella’s unique voice, the Jamaican vibe from Popcaan and the message on this track on first listening.
Been a while we have heard from Blaq Jerzee and made the wait worth it on this track.
Beautiful dancehall vibes coupled with Joeboy flirty lyrics made this an amazing lyrics.
I would have called the sounds on this Ep Afrotrap, but they are more diverse and beautiful to be boxed up into that name.
A rap/trap Ep addressing a lot of themes.
PsychYP fourth studio definitely offers us neutral fans a lot of unexplored territories to expose.
This West London afroswing collective is already a salad of talent. Now, teaming up with Nigerian Afro R&B buzz maker makes the song lit.
Be My Guest begins with an inviting low tune that makes you attentive. Then, after a bridging drum beat it goes on to reveal eclectic voices from the three WSTRN artists and Fireboy.
“if you wanna be my guest, try“.
In anticipation of his album, “Before We Fall Asleep”, Johnny Drille whets our appetites with this ravishing track.
You just gotta love JD’s voice and delivery.
“Oh my Lord, oh my baby make me go manya”
After breaking into the music scene last year, Jaido P releases his first music project and titles his Alias.
This 7-track EP features only Olamide on two tracks, Survive and Tesinapot which had cemented the sync between both artists.
Although this project falls short of being the best, it’s a good start for Jaido P.
Yusuf Oluwo is that upcoming artist you want to look out for. It’s not just about the artists and industry PRs & A&R rooting for him. It’s about his talent.
Practice Patience is part of his upcoming project “Before I Blow”. The track gives a vibe of mixture of different artists— Dice Ailes, Burna Boy, Fela— all in one.
This track gives a vibe of 80’s synth with great lead and baseline. The lyrics are empowering and the whole music makes you just want to dance.
Sigrid is one underrated pop artist, to be honest.
