AMAPIANO : DAVIDO & FOCALISTIC – CHAMPION SOUND [Mp3 Download]

Following their astonishing visits together, Davido and Focalistic drop the authority rendition of Champion Sound.

The two have fostered a close relationship since Ke Star Remix and have gone on to record another sound.

Focalistic blasting vocation took an extraordinary turn with his cooperation with Davido and he will be searching for more predominance with Champion Sound having visited Nigeria no less than multiple times and developing wings across borders with exhibitions in Dubai, Ghana, London, and different countries.

The song has made waves even before the official release.

The Nigerian craftsman realizes exactly when to drop the track as he drops it a couple of seconds to his birthday.

Davido’s Verse]
The way I’m feeling right now
Mad over you like Runtown

ALBUM : ZLATAN – RESAN [Album Download]

On his sophomore album, the multi-talented Zlatan Ibile takes stock of his ongoing progress as an artist. “‘Resan’ is actually a Swedish word that means ‘the journey’,” he tells Apple Music. “I called it that because there’s something particular about my journey—from being a grassroots artist to being someone that’s celebrated globally. I want the people to know what my music career has looked like so far.”

Delicately balancing cohesion and experimentation, the rapper stands firmly in his Zanku sound while exploring several themes over Amapiano, drill and highlife-infused instrumentation. This is the first time Zlatan has something different to tell, so there are improvements, new sounds and different skills.

The rapper talks Apple Music through his second album, track by track;

“That Guy”

“This is that kind of ‘Wake Up’ vibe—thanking God for life and everything. I said, ‘Many people have tried, and many people have failed/But I don’t want to be that guy.’ That means the only guy I want to be is a successful one. It’s for everybody—when you listen to the lyrics, you can now pick the kind of guy you want to become.”

“Alubarika” (feat. Buju)

“‘Alubarika’ means ‘certain’, and this is like a prayer song as well. As I’m going and coming—when I leave my house—success must come out of it. I was just at home in 2019 and saw a tweet saying, ‘I want Zlatan on this song’. I didn’t really know who he was then, but fast-forward to 2021 and Buju is one of the hottest artists in Nigeria. I’m happy for him and happy I could play a little role in his journey as well.”

“Level”

“‘Level’ is for the gals dem! I’m using this one to praise all the girls. Just as you’re built, don’t look down on yourself. You have level on your own and don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t.”

“Shakur” (feat. Ms Banks)

“This is a drill song, and I just felt I needed a UK rapper on it. I recorded it in Lagos but was in London a while back. Ms Banks is my G, and we were in studio together; I played the track for her and she loved it. ‘Shakur’ is Yoruba slang where you’re saying, ‘You’re free to show yourself and free to feel yourself’.”

“Polongo” (feat. Bella Shmurda)

“The chemistry between me and Bella is spiritual. He’s someone I’ve always known had something in him that the world needs to listen to. During COVID, we connected more and had music camps together. We were recording so many songs and that’s how we got his ‘Cash App’ track, ‘Hallelu’ with Masterkraft and this one. We recorded around that time period, but this is a different vibe entirely. We actually got inspiration from Danfo Drivers, who are some Nigerian OGs who did that highlife kind of sound.”

“Egun”

“I recorded this song two years ago, and every time I was making a project, I’d try to infuse it. I lost the data, and there’s always something with making a beat again! I wasn’t comfortable with the beats I was making, but I was able to work with P.Priime, who delivered. The tempo went down a bit ’cause I really wanted everybody to listen. This is a marital song, talking about us not being unfortunate by going into wedlock with someone that’s not meant for us.”

“One Life”

“This is for my party people! You only live once, whether you like it or not, and you actually need to live it to the fullest. I worked on this song with a producer named Willis, who actually produced ‘Celebrate Me’ by Patoranking. I like to work with young people that have drive and hunger ’cause the connection is always different. In Nigeria—and every part of the world—amapiano is big and that’s good for South Africans. We have to celebrate with them right now, as amapiano cuts across all countries and continents.”

“Money” (feat. Davido)

“[Davido’s] my brother and my main man. We have this chemistry that goes beyond us being colleagues; we’re quite cool friends. I didn’t wanna disappoint those who love hearing me and Davido together. So, this one is talking about me not wanting to look like I have money when I don’t, ’cause if you don’t have money, they’ll steal your wife!”

“Ale Yi”

“This was the last song I recorded on the project, and it’s just a nice vibe. I just knew it had to go out immediately when I recorded it! I was thinking about a lot of things, and even if you think [about them] from now ’til tomorrow, you can’t solve your problems—just forget your worries and enjoy yourself.”

“Fada” (feat. Phyno & Flavour)

“Having both Flavour and Phyno on a track is destruction already! Now spiced up with the Zanku as well. It sounds so perfect.”

“Energy” (feat. Rayvanny & Sho Madjozi)

“I recorded ‘Energy’ a year ago, and I’m just appreciating God’s work for creating these sexy women. This is a banger for dancers across the world. I’m looking forward to going to Tanzania and South Africa to shoot this video.”

“See Me So”

“This is just a vibe where I’m singing to a lady, proposing my love to her.”

ALBUM : MAYORKUN – BACK IN OFFICE [Album Download]

The Mayor Of Lagos got Himself “Back In Office” for the second term.

Mayorkun BIO Album Tracklisting
Tracklisting

On his long overdue sophomore album, Mayorkun blends influences from across Africa’s regions into a coherent body of work. From the East African lyrics on “Nakupenda” to the Southern African rhythms of the title track, he varies his sonics with an accomplished dexterity. “I wanted to play around with different sounds but with Afro fused in it,” Mayorkun tells Apple Music. “I still do Yoruba and local Naija wordplay, but I was going for Afrofusion.” Along with its varied aural framework, the album incorporates a range of moods and themes. “I’m heavily influenced by my environment,” he says. “I feel like I had to master peace to make this. I had to be OK before I made this album.” Covering affirmation, catharsis, social commentary, and gratitude, Mayorkun (Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel) talks us through the album, track by track.

“Soldier Boy”
“I made this song for myself. At that point, I had some things going on and was going through the most. I needed to talk to myself. I think, with the kind of person I am, most people don’t see when I’m sad. Everybody thinks I’m incapable of sadness and I’m having fun every day. Sometimes sadness makes you forget who you really are. I just reminded myself that I have my family, mum, and dad around me to let me know that it’s gonna be OK. I needed this song to remind me of that.”

“Back in Office”
“When I made these songs, I needed them to make a statement and let people know The Mayor is back—kinda bragging. This was one of the last songs I recorded on the album. Africans like to dance, and I think that’s why Nigerians love amapiano. The heavy drums and percussion are what we like over here.”

“Freedom”
“I think, with this new album, I tried to change people’s perceptions about my music a little. People think I make fun music for people to just dance to. If you listen to songs like ‘Freedom,’ I’m really in my renaissance bag, feeling like I was in slave times. I’m talking about feeling like a Black man in bondage trying to get free. When it’s freedom time…you have to do whatever you have to do.”

Let Me Know
“Fun fact: This song is about three years old. For some reason, my manager loves this song so much, so we added it to the album.”

“Desire” [Mayorkun & Gyakie]
“Gyakie has that song ‘Forever,’ which I’m a big fan of. When I was recording, I found out she was in Lagos, and I was working on this particular song. We did, like, two or three songs and I really liked this one.”

“No Strings Attached” [Mayorkun & Joeboy]
“This song is just a Lagos club anthem…I’m just talking about everything that goes down in the clubs!”

Holy Father” [Mayorkun & Victony]
“Victony is very talented, and he came up with this idea. I felt like he was talking to a girl, and it sounded like he was likening her to God in a way. Like, how you surrender—that’s what you do to God. So, I just tried to play around with that on my verses and flip it.”

“Nakupenda”
“This song is an East African jam, and I spoke Swahili in it. I worked with Napji, who also produced ‘FEM’ for Davido. He actually helped me with the Swahili…I don’t know how he knows it! I had to call a South African producer to touch it up when we were done. It had a very Afropop sound, and I needed the log drums.”

“Feel Am” [Mayorkun & Flavor]
“I’ve been wanting to do a song with Flavor for the longest time and never got the perfect tune. I’m saying, ‘If you don’t like this song, I don’t care because people in Liberia and Ghana are gonna love this song.’”

“Piece of Mind”
“It took me about three months to get this title, ’cause I made the song and was just pouring my mind out. There was a period where I was very sad and really in a bad space. For artists, when we can’t drop music, it’s like you’ve just cut off our legs, ’cause that’s what we like to do. I figured that I was giving out a piece of my mind.”

“Jay Jay” [Mayorkun & DJ Maphorisa]
“‘Jay Jay’ is a great song produced by and featuring Maphorisa. Big shout-out to him. It was recorded in South Africa, where I linked up with Maphorisa and the song just happened. When I got to his apartment, he was already working on the beat. I got in, vibed, and he loved it. If you listen to the beat, you’ll understand why it had to be on the album.”

“Oluwa”
“I wrote this song during the End SARS protest [in late 2020]. We were on the ground, and I could see that people are really suffering. We don’t say anything because of who we are, but people are actually suffering. I had a point of reflection again at that time to give thanks for what I have. I’m giving thanks, appreciating my current situation, even if it’s also not the best.”
