MUSIC : BURNA BOY – WANT IT ALL ft POLO G [Official Audio]

Burna Boy release his highly anticipated single featuring Polo G titled “Want It All”

Grammy award-winning Afro-fusion pioneer, Burna Boy releases his latest single titled “Want It All“, featuring Ace American rapper, Taurus Tremani Bartlett, known professionally as Polo G.

Produced by A-list talents, Smoke Ono and Sean Silverman with the accompanying arresting photostory visual directed by Adrian Yu and shot on location in Los Angeles, USA, ‘Want It All‘ is a refreshingly different dimension to the Afro-fusion genre, with Polo G’s verse being the icing on an already perfectly-baked cake. Burna Boy has surely stolen our hearts and taken us to the suburbs with this tune.

The African Giant × Polo G’s team-up is magnificent as they boost this charming track and visual with cooing backup vocals of choristers towards the end of the visual, evoking an avalanche of emotions.

Profound as ‘Want It All’ is, this song weaves itself around you, and is given life in understated video images, but powerful nonetheless in delivering its message. On this collaboration, Burna Boy says, “I’ve been watching him for some time, and I just knew this had to get done, but it had to get done in the perfect way where the whole world gets to feel the reality of both of us.”

After shutting down the O2 Arena and notable appearances at the 2021 Global Citizen Festival and The Governor’s Ball, this multiple award-winning A-list artiste is currently preparing for his historical Hollywood Bowl performance on Friday, Oct. 8, 2021, as part of his global Space Drift Arena Tour.

I remember when they said they don’t believe in me no more
I was sleeping on the ground, on the cold floor
Whole time I was grinding, I’ve been tryin’ to achieve
Working night and day, you know my people no dey sleep

Singing in Igbo and English, Chike and Ada Ehi both combine on this moving duet in glorious fashion, to birth a gem that is fated to be an uplifting anthem across the African continent and world at large.

Speaking on duet; “’Watching All over Me’ is an anthem of gratitude for all; regardless of tribe, religion, race, political views, gender, and whatnot. Looking back at the past 12 to 20 months, we survived a pandemic, we have survived tough times. The acceptance of my album is something I am thankful for, even having the gifted Ada Ehi join me on this song is a blessing, and I am thankful for that. This song preaches the gospel of gratitude, as the year comes to an end, we have to be thankful for life and people in it”.

MUSIC : ADEKUNLE GOLD SINNER FT. LUCKY DAYE [Mp3 Download]

Adekunle Gold “Sinner” featuring Lucky Daye is a perfect blend of Afrobeat & R’n’b pop, And Adekunle Gold outdid this.

Adekunle Gold is an award-winning Nigerian highlife, Afrobeat, Alternative and Pop singer, songwriter, and graphic designer. AG Baby calls his music “urban highlife” because of its conscious intersections with contemporary pop, electronica, folk, and R&B. His debut solo single, “Sade,” in 2014, a cover of One Direction’s “Story of My Life,” set the radio stations of Lagos buzzing. Mixed by top Nigerian singer and songwriter, Simi he won an award for it at Nigeria’s Headies the very next year for Best Alternative Song.

Sheba o Sheba
Girl you make me a sinner
Sheba O Sheba

Never say Never
Know I can do whatever
for Sheba oh Be mine
don’t wanna be a sore-loser

Listen and Enjoy!

MUSIC : OMAH LAY – UNDERSTAND [Mp3 Download]

Understand” is an uptempo record with addictive lyrics and Vibe, Omah Lay delivers yet another Godly Hit! This to whet fans and music listeners appetite while we await Omah’s album.

With his shine sparkling voice, evocative storytelling, and contagious rhythms, Omah Lay is now one of Nigeria’s most talented artist in Nigeria, talked-about musical innovators. Omah Lay’s brand of Afro-fusion pulls from his deep history with West Africa’s percussion-heavy highlife genre, as well as his enthusiasm for the popular sounds of his generation—from U.S. rap, to the Afrobeats empire flourishing in his home base of Lagos.

Raised in industrial Port Harcourt, a city infamous for oil-driven conflict, Omah Lay found comfort in the music around him. His grandfather was a percussionist in Celestine Ukwu’s legendary highlife band, and his father played, too. But it was hip-hop that inspired him to record. After becoming the neighbourhood go-to guy for beats and witnessing his tracks help others succeed, Omah Lay found his voice. Throughout his breakthrough Get Layd EP, that seductive coo unravels tales that range from introspective to explicit, expertly laid over lush and soulful instrumentals that he often dreams up himself. Layered with vivid scenarios and heartfelt confessions, Omah Lay’s music depicts a young man daring to reveal his grittiest vices and innermost feelings. Moreover, with his roots dug in firmly beneath him and a global audience tuning into Lagos’ thriving scene, Omah Lay gives us a fascinating window into Afro-fusion’s bright and expansive future.

After the huge success of his 2020 debut EP ‘Get Layd‘, Omah Lay hit the industry with another impressive EP titled “What Have We Done” 6 months after. The WHWD project housed the mega hit – GODLY.

Today July 8, 2021, Omah Lay serves his fans a brand new song titled “Understand“….

Quotable Lyrics

I thought we in this together
Give you my necklace pendant
Give you my last card you spend am
I Show you my best friend, you friend am

ALBUM : OLAMIDE – UY SCUTI [Mp3 Download]

The eleventh nigh-virtual anticipated Album from Olamide is finally out UY SCUTI.

YBNL Boss and EMPIRE rapper, Olamide releases a brand new album titled “UY Scuti” to kick start 2021 official. The music project which is a follow up to Baddo’s 10th studio album, ‘Carpe Diem‘ is a classic album.

With UY Scuti, Nigerian rapper Olamide continues his evolutionary cycle on his eleventh studio album. A follow-up to 2020’s Afrobeats-tinged Carpe Diem, this project sees him set comfortable flows over roots reggae, R&B, Afrobeats and pop soundscapes.

“Carpe Diem was the beginning of the new me, and I took it to the next level of brand Olamide’s new direction on this particular project,” Olamide tells Apple Music.

With a widened palette, he packages the lessons of his early street days into pop ditties that reflect his expanding worldview. “I’m a citizen of the world now, so my choice of sound is a combination of all the beautiful music I’ve heard,” he says.

“This is a full-time pop album, and it’s way, way above everything I’ve ever done. My son is a huge fan of astrology, and one day he asked me what the biggest star in the universe was.

Carpe Diem was the beginning of the new me, and I took it to the next level of brand Olamide’s new direction on this particular project,” Olamide tells Apple Music. With a widened palette, he packages the lessons of his early street days into pop ditties that reflect his expanding worldview. “I’m a citizen of the world now, so my choice of sound is a combination of all the beautiful music I’ve heard,” he says. “This is a full-time pop album, and it’s way, way above everything I’ve ever done. My son is a huge fan of astrology, and one day he asked me what the biggest star in the universe was. I found out; it stuck in my head and I titled the project that because it’s the biggest move I’ve made in my career.”

I found out; it stuck in my head and I titled the project that because it’s the biggest move I’ve made in my career.” Here, he talks us through this momentous offering, track by track

“Need for Speed”

“‘Need for Speed’ talks about the ups and downs of every typical ghetto kid, but I used Lagos as a point of reference. When I was younger I used to walk to school and whenever it was raining, cars would splash water on my brother and I. I used to say, ‘I can’t wait to be rich and hopefully I don’t end up like those people.’ I used to think I would never, but I’ve done such things unknowingly several times since I became rich, too. Life is like a sports car, and there’s no way you’ll buy a sports car and not want to speed.”

“Jailer” (feat. Jaywillz)

“‘Jailer’ was just vibes and feel-good music from me and Jaywillz. He came up with this hook, then we started cooking up the chorus and the beat as well. We were just trying different sounds from around the world as I chopped verses up. I’m taking a bit of everything and just mixing it up with my Afrobeats sounds nowadays.”

“Rock”

“There’s too many problems out there, so that’s what we do now: have fun, turn up and listen to good music. It’s majorly about telling someone you love, ‘Hey, you don’t even need to do too much for me to keep being with you.’ Sometimes I think society in general puts too much pressure on how a lady should look—dress like this, move like that, do this and that for your man. And the men, what do we tell them to do?”

“Julie”

“This song is me telling my woman that I know I’m crazy and not 100% perfect, but the kind of love I get from her is so amazing I’m willing to surrender everything. I wanted a mixture of that Caribbean feel just to take it away from the regular Afrobeats vibe.”

“Rough Up” (feat. Layydoe)

“This is a small bashment vibe, you know? Just true to the dancehall vibe. While I was working on this record, I went for a show somewhere outside Lagos. I was bored on the road trip, and while searching for Chaka Demus, I stumbled on a ’90s dancehall playlist. The moment I heard all those sounds, I was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna try something like this on my project.’ I also knew someone that could actually kill this. I’ve always known Layydo, and she was actually meant to be on Carpe Diem with me. I called her up to come and do justice to the song, and she did.”

“Want” (feat. Fave)

“Fave is my G! I stumbled on her music when my wife sent me a link to a song of hers last year. I checked her out and thought she was dope. Right now, we’re family and I can’t wait for the whole world to listen to her and see all she’s got. We just linked up and recorded a series of songs, and ‘Want’ is just chilled R&B vibes—some laidback music.”

“PonPon” (feat. Fave)

“This has a whole sensual vibe to it and we’re just setting the mood right like the previous song. I just thought we needed to flip it a little bit at this point, slow the run and keep it smooth. Just spice it up with something different.”

“Cup of Tea”

“This is a proper, proper Naija thing. There’s a lot of traditional Nigerian vibes in it, with the percussion and all. ‘Sho’ is just saying, ‘I’m gonna look after that…I got you’ in Yoruba. While coming up, I was a rap artist, and I grew up thinking you always needed an R&B singer to do your chorus. It was very difficult to get one while coming up, so I was like, ‘I’m not gonna wait on nobody no more.’ I started developing that part of me, and I have just kept working on my hooks. I’m not 100% where I want to be yet, but I guess it’s paying off so far.”

“Somebody” (feat. Phyno)

“‘Somebody’ is basically about being all around the world and seeing different girls. They love me and I show them love too, but that’s not the kind of love I want now. I need someone that makes me feel really special. I don’t know how this song made it to the album. Phyno just came to visit me randomly and we just wanted to play around. We’d planned to sit down, record a series of songs and just give them out to friends like DJ Enimoney. I was up recording all day, and by the time Phyno got there I was so tired. I went straight to the mic and started recording the chorus, but after that I just slept. The next day I woke up and they told me Phyno did his verse and left. When I heard it, I knew I had to finish this song and put it on my project.”

“So Much More”

“This has a roots reggae vibe to it, just a little bit faster. The song has lots of depth and it’s very special, ’cause growing up I’ve seen all the drama women go through. I dedicated this song to all the women out there, just to let them know that they might as well just live their lives, ’cause no matter what you do, people are going to talk. There’s no point in rushing into anything just to please your friends, family or society. While you’re here, make the decisions that are best for you, ’cause there’s only one life!”

“Petty (Bonus Track)”

“This is about a cocky guy—me. Ladies are always gonna come around and say no to the cocky guy because they need a chilled guy, someone they can control. The song’s just me saying, ‘I’m cocky, I know—but I’m a cool dude, yo!’”
