"Reason Much" - Jaido P
The “Tesina Pot'' singer releases a new record titled “Reason Much”. It is an introspective record which sees Jaido spill some of the topics that bother his mind on a regular basis, particularly the pressures of success. Soundz’s simple production will keep your head bumping — this record is specially made for rap heads.
"Showing Off Her Body" - DaBaby & Davido
When the Davido and DaBaby linkup happened, nobody had a clue what their type of music would sound like. Going back to Davido’s previous collaborations with American artists, it makes sense that “Showing Off Her Body” turned out to be a soft swing record. DaBaby does surprisingly well in these conditions. and you should take the time to listen to it.
"Jo Funmi" - Chimzy
Boj is recruited by Chimzy for this subtle banger. The two artists share good synergy and bounce off each other well, even though Boj’s performance overwhelms that of his host. It’s definitely a smooth one for car rides and the intimate house party, so be sure to add it to your library.
"Hustle" - Ice Prince ft Ceeza Milli, Seyi Vibez
With a new album on the way, Ice Prince makes his way back in our rotation. “Enjoyment no dey kill nobody/as we dey play, we dey faaji/no time to dey sad” is a popular gospel shared within popular culture, and Ice enlists Ceeza Milli and Seyi Vibez to get his point across. The saxophone adds a sweet element to the production, as SB and Yuba help put together an easily digestible record.
"WAP" - Moore DH ft Blaqbonez
“WAP” here means Women Are Problem, so it makes sense that Moore DH tapped Blaqbonez up for this record. Over 3:22 minutes they croon about the distractions that women bring to the life of a young man. Moore’s performance on this record was good, as Blaqbonez came through with a verse reminiscent of his work on Sex Over Love. When two good artists link up it’s always a vibe, so you should definitely listen to this.
"Little" - Teni
Teni’s formula of sweet, catchy lyrics is on show again on “Little”. This record was released as part of a 2-pack with another song called “Legendary”, but we picked this because it’s just classic Teni. She’s subtle and fun all at once, weaving colourful patterns through the Amapiano-esque production.
