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.
Johnny Drille — “Something Better”
Johnny Drille, one of the most unique-sounding Nigerian artists working today, hasn’t dropped a disappointing single since he broke out, and his new release, “Something Better” carries on that tradition.
On the Sigag Lauren-produced love song, Johnny Drille does something rather rare, as he admits that while he wants to be with this woman that has stolen his heart, she deserves much better than him.
A-Q — “You Must Feel Am” ft. Oxlade
About a week ago, A-Q dropped a thoughtful new album, God’s Engineering, and after multiple listens, the track that stands out the most is the Oxlade-assisted “You Must Feel Am”.
Although A-Q released it as a single a few days before the album’s release, it went largely unnoticed. Well, it certainly deserves our attention, not just for A-Q’s solid bars, but also for Oxlade’s magnificent hook.
