The listeners can move back and forth about choices as regards the melodies they want on their devices this coming week but it can never be more flavored than our playlist of carefully curated tunes from different genres and mix continents. Check on it here.
49-99 – Tiwa Savage
Inspired by a Fela classic Olamide and Pheelz found in their collection, they urged the recently Universal Music Global and African superstar to lay her vocals on the rich Afro instrumentals. The tune is also characterized by indigenous proverbs.
What you did – Mahalia and Ella Mai
Both female vocalists preached unforgiveness on the powerful R’n’b tune after a partner went rampage and cheated multiple times.
Blessings – Phyno featuring Olamide and Don Jazzy
Phyno won’t allow Olamide to flourish alone on the record. This is the first time Olamide and Don Jazzy will be on the same song since their Headies feud years ago. The Afro-life song welcomes the trio a mood of gratitude.
Hollywood’s bleeding – Post Malone
Post has structured his music for the depressed even when he has made his fortunes from the music. On the album-coined title, Post Malone regrets the nonchalance and lack of commitment of a partner he’s trying to win back.
Rora – Reekado Banks
The man is ready for another spell even with the buzz he received years ago. The Afrobeats record is the intersection of glorifying feminine assets and sticking to the rich instrumentals towards the end of the record.
Bolanle – IVD & Zlatan Ibile
The melodious tune is relatable and dilutes the reality of most failed relationships. The Afropop tune is rich with African drums and cymbal strikes.
Yeba – Yemi Alade
Yemi Alade draws inspiration from her expressive vocals to create a melodious record.
Ride for you – Phyno featuring Davido
The pair laid down perfect indigenous igbo dialect on the love-inspired melody.
Ran$om – Lil Tecca
The effect of two-key instrumentals is obvious especially when breaking in new rappers into the industry. The story of the 16-year old is no different from other rappers that have done it in the past as he confidently flowed with subtle bars.
CIA (Criminal in Agbada) – Yemi Alade
Yemi Alade lands on the reggae instrumental as an activist with a powerful message to leaders.
