We are just three days into February, yet the month has proven to be a promising one. As the month kicks into full gear, Afrobeats artistes are giving it their all to make their mark this year. This week isn’t different, as top artistes in the industry are giving us reasons to stan them. Topping this week’s list is Asake, who has made his 2023 debut with a banging song accompanied by colorful visuals titled Yoga.
Elsewhere, music veteran Wande Coal also released a groovy and certainly memorable song titled Kpe Paso. On the song, he enlists the prowess of fellow veteran and rapper Olamide, who delivered his catchy lines and unique sound over the provided beat. From Asake to Wande Coal, this week’s Afrobeats offerings are as impressive as ever. As usual, we’ve curated the top five trending tunes for your listening pleasure.
Check out the top 5 trending new Afrobeats songs released this week…
#1. Asake – Yoga
After a spectacular run in 2022, Asake is back and out to own 2023. This time, he churns out a new single titled Yoga. Produced by Magic Sticks, the song is layered with harmonious silky background vocals—synonymous with Asake’s unique sound as he sings effortlessly, passionately, and with confidence. The song is complemented by a big-budget music video directed by the usual suspect, TG Omori.
#2. DJ Neptune ft. Ruger – Bienvenue
After successfully putting last year to a close with the banger Asiwaju, Ruger opens his 2023 account. This time, he is guided by veteran disk jockey and entertainer, DJ Neptune. For the first time ever, DJ Neptune collaborates with the Jonzing World star on his latest single titled Bienvenue. The track’s title which translates to “one who is welcome” in French sees Ruger emitting comforting words to his love interest. Bienvenue is co-produced by Choke Boi, Kukbeatz, and of course, DJ Neptune and serves as Neptune’s first official single for 2023.
#3. Wande Coal ft. Olamide – Kpe Paso
Nigerian veteran singer-songwriter Wande Coal has opened his 2023 account with a new single titled Kpe Paso. On the new output, he collaborates with another veteran, YBNL’s kingpin, Olamide. On Kpe Paso, one can easily tell both acts had fun on the smooth instrumental of the track provided by skilled beatmaker, Kel P. It is Wande Coal’s first output for 2023 and a pathway to a forthcoming project currently in the works. The song is complemented by an artistic music video directed by Jyde Ajala.
#4. Zlatan ft. Seyi Vibez – Let There Be Light
The Seyi Vibez hype continues to gain steam song after song, and as you can see, it isn’t stopping anytime soon. The raving rapper and singer joins Zanku Records’ head honcho, Zlatan on his latest single titled Let There Be Light. This song marks the second collaboration between both acts following Seyi Vibez’s 2021 single Professor Peller. The track is produced by talented beatmaker Dibs and it serves as Zlatan’s first official single for 2023 and a pathway to his forthcoming project.
#5. Lojay – Moto
Since Lojay stepped out with the collaborative project LV N ATTN with revered record producer Sarz, he hasn’t looked back. He has since released amazing numbers and involved himself in interesting collaborations, including his international collab with Chris Brown on the Monalisa remix. Today, Lojay is taking another leap forward as he renders a highly infectious number dubbed Moto. Co-produced by Lojay and The Elements, the track is a sombre reflection on the loss of a sentimental past relationship. Asake Yoga
