Pick of the week: Deola Taylor - Duro Na
Moment of the week: The hook on 'Officer' by Droxxx featuring Mo'Gunz
Here are the song you need to play this week;
Nathan Walid - Juju Lady
Nathan Walid is talented and he can sing. This new single is a solemn love song with a pop hue. By delivery, it's imperfect, but it has melody.
Ayo Britain featuring Double LZ - Money
Ayo Britaiin is a Manchester act of Nigerian descent. His new single features London act, Double Lz and it creatively discusses all things one could do with wealth... No, opulence.
Deola Taylor - Duro Na
Off his new EP, BLUES AT THE BAR, Deola Taylor delivers a request to a drifting love interest. Wait for that guitar solo...
Mün featuring Mona Lee - Love Bug
While Mona Lee is blessed with great vocals, that hook could have been delivered better. Nonetheless, it all develops into quality music that represents a cut between the 'dating stage' and teenage love affairs - no Allcia Keys.
Dark Ruby - On You
Dark Ruby was known as Elohor. Now that you know that, let's discuss this beautiful R&B number which finds a sensual way to present the beautifully gruesome and nasty world of sex. What a creative use of innuendo.
Trill Xoe featuring Psycho YP and Alpha Ojini - How To Act
In case you didn't know, Trill Xoe is the amazing producer who made 'Thunder' for Tonero in 2019. This time, he shows his versatility on a trap bop, on which Psycho YP and rapper-cum-fast-rising-money-making-sound-engineer- Alpha Ojini read out a near-authoritarian.
Droxxx & Mo'Gunz - Officer
The best thing about this is the attractive Nigerianization of drill - a genre which Droxxx is slowly associating himself with. The hook is unrepentantly cut from Yoruba as Droxxx warns a Police Officer - presumably Nigerian - to be careful. Give dem!
Black Gypsy Unit feat. Wade & Osii - Gyal
While the song is more psychedelic and cerebral in sound, Black Gypsy Unit, Wade and Osii generate sufficient enough hysteria with their flow that you vibe without realize. As Vector tha Viper always says, 'No worry yourself, you go couple..."
Rominus - Caribbean Sunshine
Delivered in patois, Rominus draws inspiration from Caribbean weather and uses it as a metaphor for the brightness and attractive warmth of a woman.
Klu - Own Money
This video has already garnered 15,000 views on YouTube because the song is so infectious. But for 'Duro Na,' this would have been our pick of the week. What a song!
That mixing could have been better though. That song on better drums would have been a madness.
