August is here, and it’s like for the first time in 2019, something that’s not Winter is coming (yeah, Summer.) Right? New month, new things, of course.
And it’s a new week, anyway. Before it gets all clustered up, here’s ten fire jams released in the course of last week, that should definitely be on your playlist if you love good vibes! it features songs from Lil Kesh, Mayorkun, Chinko Ekun, Johnny Drille, Junior Boy, Victor AD, Baddy Oosha, Qdot, Burna Boy, Blaqbonez, L.A.X, Broda Shaggi, Oladips.
Lil Kesh – Nkan Be ft. Mayorkun
Lil Leah’s career isn’t over, just yet. And that’s a good thing because that also means new music for us. Everybody wins.
For “Nkan Be”, the former YBNL rapper (and singer, of course), tapped DMW Star Boy, Mayorkun, to deliver a cool Afro vibe. A love song, big hit, fans love it. As I said, everyone wins!
Chinko Ekun – Calling ft. Johnny Drille
If the same Chinko Ekun that blew up with “Able God” now deemed it fit to feature Johnny Drille, well isn’t that the end of the goddamned world? These magics don’t happen twice, so you don’t wanna miss it while it’s still hot.
“Calling” is a love tune, and that’s the reason he needed to link up with a very cool guy like Johnny, anyway. Not that he’s not cool, Chinko, he is cool too. At least, his previous single with Peruzzi, “Samena” had a good vibe, too.
Junior Boy – Ngwa
Junior Boy at it again. As he delivers the high tempo “Ngwa” track that sounds like some South African jam. Actually produced by Spiritual Beats, not Uhuru.
“Ngwa” is the perfect jam, for a dance, this summer, yeah. And this week, too. Because that’s the point, right?
Victor AD – Kowo Wole
It’s no news that Victor AD just released his anticipated album, “Red Eye”, a 7-track EP with superb tracks. This is one track off the album.
“Kowo Wole” is a fast tempo one with a lit chorus and a contagious beat. Sounds like he’s making something from the streets – the real streets, yeah.
Baddy Oosha – Mama Africa ft. Qdot
The Lion himself, Baddy Oosha is actually now serious about this music thing. He has a whole new body of work to show for that.
“Mama Africa”, which is off his album features Qdot, and it’s some mother’s eulogy stuff. Qdot took the shine, but Baddy Oosha’s performance was also impressive. I give him that one.
Burna Boy – Destiny
That is, of course, if you don’t have the “African Giant” album, already. And if you don’t, you most likely suck or there’s a reasonable explanation for it.
Here is “Destiny”, another killer tune off the album. Burna Boy is a bag of vibes, so if for nothing else, you have to put the song this jam on your playlist this week because you definitely won’t regret doing that!
Blaqbonez – Best Rapper in Africa
They were dissing Blaqbonez all over the week before last week, he had no choice than to get the permission slip and get into the booth.
On “Best Rapper in Africa”, Blaq took direct shots at Tentik, Payper and a couple others who have had something to say about him.
Just one track isn’t enough to be the best on the continent, but it’s not that bad to have a good single that has people talking. The hilarious single even has a Sir Davos simile line.
L.A.X – Body
The industry hasn’t been smiling. Especially at artists like L.A.X. But that doesn’t take the talent away from him, does it?
Last year, he released his album, “Rasaking” which featured several big guys, including Wizkid. Well, he’s not been able to pull a hit, since.
“Body” is fire, though. Want some good music? Be my guest.
Victor AD – Fact
“Fact” has an afro-highlife vibe and it’s a love song. A Delta boy’s “ Nobody Fine Pass You. ” Hit potential, that is. And it’s also off Victor AD’s just-released EP, “Red Eye.”
This alone could make your week rock. It’s a real good vibe, lit and perfect!
Broda Shaggi – Black Skin Boy
Popular comedian puts out his own version of the trending “Brown Skin Girl” hit performed by Beyonce and Wizkid.
“Black Skin Boy” has a comic effect and a vibe that sounds like Fuji. You will love this, as the skits in-between will crack you up.
The highlight is the Pasuma sample he added to the jam. Fire, definitely.
Oladips – Twenty Tiri K
Oh, well, look what we have here? Dips who recently left his label (Reminisce’s, by the way), LRR, and released a rap track called “Maybe” might just be ready for the streets again.
Of course, the storyline on the new one is intact, doesn’t change the fact that this one is a good jam, right there. There’s no way this isn’t taking over this week. Don’t try to miss out!
