Selection of the songs are based off stellar production, fine content and feel good vibes.
May was quite a month. We got served with a ton of music, mostly good ones thankfully.
These select group of songs ride on stellar production, fine content and feel good vibes.
They also cut across various genres of the beautiful art, and include artists making the cut with their debut singles.
Here are some of the finest Nigerian songs released in May 2017, in no particular order.
Chyn - Find you ft Funbi
Smooth flowing rap from Chyn. Amazing hook from Funbi. Beautiful production.
Humblesmith – Focus
Melodious and relatable, Humblesmith makes it known in the song he is ready to spoil his woman.
DJ Tunez - My love ft Adekunle Gold, Del B
DJ Tunez sampled just the right song ('KWAM 1 King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall's 'Can't stop thinking about you') for the sweet hook rendered by Adekunle Gold and a complementing beat by Del B.
Reminisce - Level yen
Definitely one of the Alaga Ibile's finest rap performance, Reminisce went all in for this.
Davina Oriakhi - Find Self Love Self (F.S.L.S)
Intelligent and thoughtful songwriting from the U.K based singer, Davina spreads the need for self-love and holding yourself in high esteem, not to be mistaken for haughtiness.
Seyi Shay - Weekend vibes
Seyi is nutty and ready to play for the weekend on this catchy tune. After her well received 'Yolo Yolo', it's nothing but good vibes on the Krizbeatz produced song.
Bella - Radio ft Ycee
Easy-going flow on this one, Bella shows the stuff she's made of alongside Ycee rides on the groovy Syn X beat.
Ace producer Juls enagages two of the best voices out right now in Nonso and Maleek for this love tune.
Timaya - Dance ft Rudeboy
Dancehall maestro and Rudeboy Psquare make a kill of this song sampling beautifully the veteran singer Blackky's 'Rosie: Can I have a dance'. Orbeat was a monster on the production.
Lady Donli - Ice cream ft Tomi Thomas
The introductory vocals on this song first of all is everything. There's a good chance you're going to be wanting some ice cream after listening to this, not taking away every other thing that makes this song sweet.
Runtown - For life
Another runaway love song from the singer whose music peeps been mad over for months. Krizbeatz did a good job on this back to back hit.
Vector - Seaside ft Korede Bello
When Vector gets in that groove, the rest could be said to be history. Korede Bello was a good collaborator on the love track. It's wavy.
Olamide - Wavy level
Ycee's 'Juice' producer Adey cast his spell again on this joint for Olamide who took the cue, and did major damage on the track as usual.
3rty, Kid Marley - 'Sunday morning'
This singer and rapper pair are on to something with their collaborative album "The Grey Area" coming through soon. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Enjoy.
Though dubbed a freestyle, Poe with each track is showing he is truly that Mavin material. Fine production from Bankyondbeatz. Credit to DJ Yin for the additional vocals.
Olú - 'The cry'
Olú’ brings beautiful storytelling along with top notch production in 'Thw cry'. Olú’ is a voice of the future.
TnJ takes the rap to church! A very impressive effort from the indigenous act. Call it Gospel rap and you won't be wrong.
