Yaay it’s Friday! It’s time to relax from the hustle of the week. Because we’ve always got you, here is a compilation of the new songs of the week to keep you relaxed and vibing throughout your weekend:
Mood – Wizkid ft Buju
Fresh off his success with the Made in Lagos Album, Grammy award-winning superstar, Wizkid releases a deluxe version. One of the changes we can notice in this album is his feature with Buju on Mood. Buju begins the song with his voice that takes you to cloud 9 and with a combination of some nice bass drum sounds Wizkid takes over to put us in the mood we want to be. The song has a bouncy tune that would leave you vibing and feeling good.
So cold – Bella Schmurda ft Popcaan
On this diverse sound, Shmurda and Popcaan find common grounds on their grass to grace stories, bad governments, patriotism, lust, and hustler spirits over a mix of shaky bass instruments. So cold shows us that singers with disparities in sounds can blend so well. The track contains very deep lyrics and Bella Schmurda makes it hit hard with his resounding deep-throaty voice.
Loving is harder – Johnny Drille
In this song, Johnny Drille expresses his emotions to his lover with a string-full orchestration. The song shows off his captivating and warm voice that drives home a feeling of sensuality and keeps us anticipating his forthcoming debut Album Before we fall asleep.
I’m cute – Kima Otung
I’m cute is a self-love anthem by the Nigerian-born, Welsh-raised, and now London-based, Kima Otung. On this track, the singer is on a mission to prove to women everywhere that confidence and self-worth are some of the most important attributes of life. It’s that song you would want to play on days when you feel like you’re not good enough to make you happy.
Bena -Jinmi Abduls
Bena is a soulful yet vibey rendition from Jinmi Abduls’ Little Lagos EP. In this song, he begs his lover and confesses his feelings to her in a mind-blowing way. The song takes us to an amapiano twist mid-ending. It’s that track you want to play for a girl that makes your heart beat and probably party afterwards.
Mr Nike – DTS ft April Maey
DTS has been accorded the accolades for being able to create his own sounds and on Mr Nike, he shows us how unique his sound can be. This song falls into the category of the new-cool music. It gives an R&B-pop kind of tune with April Maey taking the song right where it should be with her alluring and soothing voice.
Lagos – Lisa Viola ft Majeed
On this track, Lisa Viola teams up with Majeed to give an ode to Lagos. The song gives a picture of the reality of the beautiful commercial city and takes you to a Deja Vu moment if you’ve experienced life in Lagos. It talks about how you need to work hard in Lagos and be wise. It gives an alte and groovy kind of tune.
