This week promises to be a good one as sounds are beginning to hit the level where we foresaw. The year is up and running; unlike the heralding months in which usual suspects released ample materials. Away from the analysis, here are the songs we want you to listen to this week:
Megatron – Nicki Minaj
Since her last album, her return to a poppier sound is blessed with a dancehall production and a lively hook. Nicki will stay on course as her trials with rivals has crippled her sound.
Ello baby – Young John featuring Tiwa Savage and Kizz Daniel
On the catchy instrumentals engineered by Young John, Tiwa Savage flips her pop sound away from the international move and infuses the Nigerian approach atop Kizz Daniel’s usual midas touch.
Frenemies – 2Baba and Waje
The two flow seamlessly on a reggae-inspired production making it the song like a rehearsed duet. The magical switch between the two is addicting.
All over you – Wale Kwame featuring Davido and Kwesi Arthur
Davido impresses on the chorus to a soulful pop song and the two Ghanaians songsters, Wale and Kwesi show why they are the most-sought after musicians from Ghana.
Ringer – Dremo featuring Reekado Banks
Dremo attempts to fuse his rap skills to a pop anthem and Reekado Banks drops his vocals on the hook.
Rodeo – Lil Nas X featuring Cardi B
For a 20-year old with so much clout under him right now, a collaboration with Cardi B is huge. This is our stand-out track from his ‘7’ EP.
Sweet love – Duncan Mighty
Duncan’s high pitch mixed with his rare low notes and this is the best version of hi that we have never heard.
Gbe body – Damilare featuring King Perryy
The two challenge themselves on the promising dancehall record and it is for your listening pleasure.
Kelegbe Megbe – Adekunle Gold
Adekunle Gold is a vibe and we are leaving it here to break down the lines as used in parables.
Based on kpa – LadiPoe featuring Crayon
After social media and music lovers woke up to Crayon few weeks ago, he is on the same song with LadiPoe and he is flourishing as he did on ‘All is in order’.
