It’s been an interesting week filled with Trump’s tweets, postcode beef and Twitter’s fleets, and it’s easy to get lost in all that and everything in between. Thankfully, we’re here to make things easy for you. Here are some recent releases that you may have missed, and are definitely worth checking out.
Lord B – Amarachi
As the year comes to a close and the cuffing season intensifies, we all need songs to settle down in our partner’s arms. Thankfully, Amarachi makes that task tremendously easy.
Singing with smooth vocals and burning desire, Lord B serenades a lover with promises and praises in an attempt to win her over. It’s a great song to soundtrack a Christmas tryst, fling, or just about any other form of entanglement you may find yourself in at the moment.
Know Me Well – dndSection
Atlanta based Nigerian rapper dndSection returns with his third single of the year, Know Me Well.
dndSection translates his steez to his music, and that’s very clear on Know Me Well. Pairing minimalistic production with boastful lyrics, dnd gives us an extra boost of confidence with this track, with lines to nod our heads to as we remind ourselves that we’re not to be trifled with. It’s something to listen to after piecing together the craziest fit in your neighbourhood, and debuting it for all to see.
Caro – YP & Azanti
A few days ago, Apex Village signees PsychoYP and Azanti gave us a taste of their combined abilities with the release of their joint tape, YP and Azanti, Vol. 1, much to our excitement.
The album closer Caro gives us an interesting mix of afropop, with just a little hint of r&b. The song sees the pair swooning over a girl, as is usually the case with these songs named after a woman, sitting right up there with the Funkes and Bolanles. It’s every bit a hit as the rest of the tape, and further proof of the pair’s undeniable talent.
Mercury – SOLIS
The second track on her debut mixtape “ruled by venus, unfortunately”, we have the single, Mercury. A song that conveys a lot of the emotions everyone is feeling right now.
Clocking in at just under 3 minutes, It’s a brief overview of the pain we’ve collectively experienced this year, from loss, to feelings of despair and hopelessness.
Her soft vocals glide over a bedroom pop beat as she painfully poses the question “2020, what did we do to you?” almost as if it demands an answer, and it’s one that a lot of us can relate to, in light of recent events.
Hit The Spot – Sir Tami
Taking a break from his usual afrobeat sound, Sir Tami channels his talents towards rap on Hit The Spot. Needless to say, it’s an instant hit.
Tami delivers his lines with a certain smugness, showing us a more authoritative and cocky side to his music. This change in sound is a welcome addition to his ever-growing discography, showing just how flexible his sound can be.
Wavegodshit Feat. BBL Baby – Need Space
Wavegodshit formerly known as Tonero sneaks a new track in since changing his name. The song ‘Need Space’ was first teased on his social media but for some reason never got an official release date. He later released it as a single on his soundcloud page only.
The song sees Wavegodshit do what he does best, delivering another good track with a dope guest verse.
