If there’s one gift 2021 has given us, it’s the gift of new and evolved sounds. It’s very refreshing to watch African artists put in so much work into their craft and see the results manifest. This is one of the reasons we love Adekunle Gold’s new song, Sinner which features Grammy-nominated American RnB singer Lucky Daye.
So many songs that were released across Africa this week showed artistry and growth. We’ve compiled a list of the trendiest.
Here are 5 trending songs across Africa…
1. Adekunle Gold ft. Lucky Daye – Sinner
Nigeria superstar, Adekunle Gold is joined by buzzing International singer, Lucky Daye on this brand new song titled Sinner. Produced by BlaiseBeatz, Sinner is a perfect blend of Afrobeat & RnB. The afrofusion singer outdid himself on this song which is likely to solidify him as an international artist.
2. Omah Lay – Understand
Nigeria’s Omah Lay has returned from his hiatus and has blessed fans with a new song titled Understand. After a successful 2020 and a much-needed break, the godly singer is back to hopefully top the charts as he did in the past year. Understand is a groovy song with killer rhymes and Omah Lay’s signature vocals and catchy lines.
3. Sarkodie ft. Vic Mensa – Vibration
Following the postponement of his seventh studio album No Pressure to July 30, Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie compensates his fans as promised with new music titled Vibration featuring Ghanaian-American rapper, Vic Mensa. This song bridges the gap between the Ghanaian and American rap scene and we see it doing great on the Ghanaian music scene.
4. Boj, Zamir and Amaarae – Money and Laughter
Nigerian singer, Boj is back with a new single titled Money and laughter on which Zamir and Amaarae feature. The song sees the trio of artists go back to back on the chilled beat to provide the scene with some much-needed vibes. Each artist flexes their vocal capabilities on the mic with every vocal adding a layer to the summer riddim’s laid-back feel.
5. Dr. Dolor and Buju – Baba Nla
Music Executive and Artiste Dr. Dolor has teamed up with buzzing Nigerian singer Buju to deliver a new single titled Baba Nla. The tune themes around being a don in one’s doings. As expected, Buju dominated the song with his talent, excellently delivering his verse with excellence and professionalism.
