From established veterans like Sean Tizzle and Kofi Kinaata to the NextGen cats like Remy Crown, Gabzy and Buju, this week features a tasty range of new Afrobeats sounds. Check ’em out below.
Buju – Outside
Darkovibes ft. Runtown – Understanding Love
You can hardly go wrong with a Ghana-Naija collaboration, especially when it’s between two singers who are quickly forming a strong bond with a growing list of collabs between them (See Body Riddim and Mike Tyson). It’s Darkovibes and Runtown once again with “Understanding Love“.
Sean Tizzle – Know Person
Sean Tizzle serves up his first joint post “Where You Been?” EP tagged “Know Person.”
DJ Big N x Remy Crown – AJE
When you’re big, you’re big abeg!
It’s always nice to see established DJs giving the talented new guys a shot. That’s precisely what Mavin in-house DJ Big N has done on this new record “AJE” featuring Remy Crown. Have a listen.
The Compozers ft. Mr Eazi – Problem
Another Ghana-Naija linkup as The Compozers enlist Mr Eazi for their latest single “Problem.”
WurlD, Erica Banks, Amaarae – Bossy Part II ft. Kida Kudz, Cuppy
With WurlD set to go on tour with Sarz later this Summer, it’s only right that we start getting “reminders” of just how good he is, be it through new singles or remixes such as this. The original “Bossy” appeared on his November 2020 EP, Afrosoul (Deluxe Edition).
Gabzy – Pull Up
Just as you have Garri and Groundnut as an undefeated pair, same applies to Gabzy and Melvitto. Nuff said.
C Blvck ft. Mohbad – Available
Marlian Music continues its hot streak with a fresh joint by 2 of its high-flying street hop acts.
Kofi Kinaata – We Dey For You
Apparently, this song by Ghanaian highlife veteran, Kofi Kinaata, is a birthday dedication to his friend. I love it still!
Medikal – Ama
Ghanaian Drill is certainly here to stay! Medikal, as usual, continues to be at the forefront of the movement.
Could “Ama” be the “La Hustle” of 2021?
Wendy Shay – Decision ft. Medikal
If there was anything like a “positive song of the week”, this would be it. Big-ups to Wendy Shay for delivering yet again.
And there you have it for this week…
