What new music are banging the streets, anyway? And are these new songs really worth checking out? That may be a subjective question, but Vic O has music out too, and you probably don’t want to have that on your playlist more than you want to start your week with it. I guess that makes two of us, though.
But a couple of hits are out there, that everyone should definitely check out. You should put them on your playlist, and bang ’em all week long. Really.
Burna Boy – Anybody
If you don’t have this track already, you’re wrong. “Anybody” is probably the hottest thing around now, and it’s a banger. Some say it’s below the Burna standard, or it’s just another ordinary song, or whatever. But who cares? We just wanna feel the vibe and feel alive, isn’t it? Then Burna Boy’s “Anybody” should definitely be on your playlist, this week.
Fireboy – What If I Say
Since Fireboy got signed to YBNL, last summer, a lot has happened. One thing has been true all through, the guy’s got game. Nobody knows if he’s gonna stay hot long enough to let us feel what he got. But we know he’s literally Fire.
“What If I Say” is a hard vibe, that somehow brings back some nostalgia cause the boy started sounding like Adekunle Gold, at some point. The vibe is like a Adekunle x Burna Boy joint, it’s cool.
It’s probably one of the most trending right now, on Social Media, on Search Engines, everywhere. And this means a lot to Fireboy, it may mean he has another big one after all. This will definitely out-sell “Jealous.”
BOJ – Awolowo (Remix) Ft. Falz, Ycee, Fresh L
BOJ of the collective DRB, comes through with a remix to his hit, “Awolowo.” The older version featured Ghanaian arts, and he just had to do this, for the culture.
A hip-hop/afrobeats marsh-up, it’s a fun song, and the guys just doing their thing, having fun. Falz was at his best, delivering thoughtful bars, as ever. Ycee was hyper, he got cool vibe. And Fresh L, who is also part of DRBLasgidi, finished it off with his own smooth vibe.
There’s no reason you shouldn’t have this on your playlist, this week.
Junior Boy – Anita Baker
Maybe “Junior Boy My Prayer” is the one topping the searches, but this new one is worth checking out. Once you check it out, and play it once, it will be hard to not put it on repeat.
Really it’s good to hear Junior Boy not praying on his song, this one is a club banger, a good sing-along. It’s a fan favorite, and you can’t deny this is a great vibe. If anything, this is a potential big hit!
Nonso Amadi – Comfortable Ft. Kwesi Arthur
Nonso Amadi is a fresh guy, literally. He knows how to tweak Afro sounds to make it finesse, in fact that’s what he does every time. And for a while, he’s been on a roll.
If you’ve never heard of him before, you should probably start from Nonso Amadi Tonight, cause you’ll feel like he’s evolved over time. This “Comfortable” track is one of his coolest, till date.
Ghanaian rapper, Kwesi Arthur, also added his sauce on the jam, making it sound like a Nigeria-meets-UK-and-Ghana vibe. You should put this on, too. Definitely.
