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.
Wani — “No Love” ft. Prettyboy DO
It’s been nearly a year since we got new music from the talented Wani. His memorable feature on Odunsi’s “Better Days” got fans hungry for more, and he’s finally come through with two new singles, “Fast Life” and “No Love”, with the latter being the standout.
Featuring the always great Prettyboy DO, “No Love” finds both stars calling out fake friends and the people who didn’t fuck with them until they found success. While songs about haters have certainly been overdone, they are rarely ever this good.
Reekado Banks — “Put In Pressure”
Reekado Banks, one of afropop’s most consistent stars, already dropped a 2019 highlight, “Rora”. Now, with the year just a month away from coming to an end, he’s very graciously followed it up with another infectious banger, “Put In Pressure”.
Produced by Kel P — the genius behind Burna Boy’s Grammy-nominated album, African Giant — “Put In Pressure” is all about sex. On the track, Reekado sings about a lover who is pushing him to bring his A-game in the bedroom. Well, he clearly took that prompt into the studio as well.
