There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.
Davido — “FEM”
Following the success of his outstanding sophomore album, A Good Time, Davido is now gearing up to drop his third LP, the promisingly titled A Better Time.
For his first single off the upcoming project, the Napji-produced “FEM”, the afropop juggernaut sends a clear and concise message to his hoard of haters: “Shut the hell up”.
Mr Eazi & Major Lazer — “Oh My Gawd’ ft. Nicki Minaj & K4MO
One of Nigeria’s hardest-working stars, Mr Eazi has dropped a number of solid singles this year, from the stellar “Kpalanga” to the infectious “I No Go Give Up On You”
Now, he’s back with “Oh My Gawd”, a vibrant track that feels primed to be his biggest hit yet, thanks to major assists from Major Lazer and the always impressive Nicki Minaj.
Wande Coal — “Check”
After dropping some of the best tracks he’s had in years, Wande Caal has now released his new EP, Realms, which includes three previously heard singles and three new songs.
Out of the three new tracks, the one that instantly stands out is the dynamic “Check” — a song that greatly benefits from sounding like an amalgamation of the old Wande hits we all fell in love with.
