Our favorite thing about the Afrobeats music industry now is the possibility of having more than one song of the moment. This is brought about by Afrobeats artists’ drive to outdo themselves with every new song. This week is no different, as an array of possible anthems were released. Take, for example, Tiwa Savage and Asake’s trendy new song titled Loaded. This song has been the talk of social media since its release.
Another song that has listeners gagged is Mavin Records’ 10th-anniversary song, Won Da Mo. Featuring all the artists currently signed to the record label, this list of talents delivered a bop in under four minutes. With a number of star releases this week, Afrobeats fans have quite a lot to catch up on. Accordingly, we’ve compiled the top five trending new hits to kick-start your weekend groove.
