Curated for your listening pleasure, we present ten songs we feel will be a worthy accompaniment throughout the week.

1.       FRANKIE WALTER ft RIC HASSANI – This Thing
This MacRoy produced song has both vocalists bringing their A Game to the song. Frankie, for whom this is only his second single of the year scored a major one with the quality of the music and this feature.

2.       ODUNSI THE ENGINE ft HAMZAA – take me there 
Off his debut album rare. comes this international collaboration. A dreamy song which moves at a leisurely pace surely perfect for the introspective moments.


3.       QUAVO ft NORMANI & DAVIDO – Swing
Recently, Quavo of Migos released his debut solo album. While there have been subtle digs at Quavo not knowing what a ‘solo album’ means, (they’re many collaborations) there were no such opinions about Swing, easily the standout from the album; with our own Davido “providing the vibes”.

4.       MAKA ft ALPHA – Hula Hooping
The Soul/ Alternative singer Maka delivered a five track EP titled CTRL+M – all acoustic inspired songs – and some, inspired by SZA, like this. Maka samples, for a bit, Love Galore and Alpha is the Travis to her song.

5.       BEMSHIMA – Closure
The MC and producer Bemshima has scored some high profile collaborations. He has famously produced for A-Q and among industry movers, he’s stronger as a beat maker but he does possesses a fiery skill on the mic too, as he proves on Closure. 

6.       VECTOR ft El-Rigo – Church
The rapper Vector polarizes fans but one unarguable thing about him is that when motivated, he can churn out classics. Church is one of such. Featured as a song in his Rap Dialogue EP, the song samples a 90s Hip Hop song and samples Brymo’s vocals on the Loose Talk podcast episode titled Higher Vibrations.

7.       POE – Mood
Poe begins the song by asking a set of questions about an alternate reality – like,  what would Afrobeat sound like if you couldn’t say whine? Well, for one, Wizkid wouldn’t be on One Dance.

8.       MAKA – No Be Me

Just Acoustic and Bigfootinyourface create the perfect landscape for Maka’s voice to flourish. On No Be Me, she bemoans the expectations of her lover, saying she loves him but not enough to rid herself of what makes her uniquely her.

A treatise on originality.

9.       D – TRUCE FT TYLERRIDDIM  – Kalakuta
This project, titled Backbenchers Vol 1 has been quite a while but it’s likely you haven’t heard it.
Two ex classmates and forever friends come together to tap into nostalgia to deliver one of the more striking joint projects we’ve ever heard. The opener to the five track EP is Kalakuta, which expectedly, taps Fela and the song itself, brims with so much regulated electricity that Tyler’s hook seems like a less hyper Burna Boy singing, only better. Truce comes hard too.

It is worth remembering that Poe got his big breaks and mentorship under the belts of Show Dem Camp – the Premier African Hip Hop duo.

On Talk About Poe, the Mavin signed artiste recruits Ghost (one half of SDC) for Double Homicide, one of the harder songs on the album, as they both trade bar for bar.
