Peruzzi And Fireboy DML Admonish Us To Apply ‘Pressure’ + More Trending New Afrobeats Songs
When a bottle of good wine lingers a tad, it is believed that the taste to be relished is worth the while. This is in the same vein as Afrobeats, an age-long, now mainstream genre which seems to be growing in grace and tenacity as the years roll by. Proof of this growth is this week’s batch of music releases from some of our favorite crooners. Leading the list is Peruzzi who has teamed up with Mr. Lover, Fireboy DML to deliver Pressure. It’s definitely about time we got another collab from them.
After back-to-back fire singles by music producer Rexxie, the hitmaker has finally dropped his highly anticipated sophomore album titled Big Time. The opening track of the same name features rising star, Lojay who delivers a song worthy of introducing us to a wonderful body of work. Besides these two, there are other groovy releases this week that have caught our attention. As a result, we’ve curated this list of the best and trendiest five songs to give your playlist the required freshness.
Check out the top 5 trending new Afrobeats songs released this week…
#1. Peruzzi ft. Fireboy DML – Pressure
Peruzzi is off to a good start in 2023 with his first official single titled Pressure. The song features YBNL’s wunderkind, Fireboy DML and it doubles as their second-ever collaboration following the release of Southy Love in December 2020. Peruzzi lets out his feelings on the track with his saccharine vocals. Fireboy, on the other hand, woos his love interest daringly with vocals in a bid to win her over. Pressure is produced by talented beatmaker 3 Heads.
#2. Rexxie ft. Lojay – Asiko (Big Time)
After churning out bangers like No More Condition, Abracadabra, and its Wizkid-assisted remix, Rexxie resurfaces once again with a body of work; an album titled Big Time. The album consists of 12 impressive records which include a song named after the album which features hitmaker Lojay. On Big Time, Lojay delivers a memorable intro track as he provides his unique sound over Rexxie’s smooth production.
