There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.

Brymo — “Strippers + White Lines”

Brymo, one of Nigeria’s most acclaimed singer-songwriters, just released his seventh studio album, Yellow,

and “Strippers + White Lines” is its astounding lead single.

On the Mikkyme Joses-produced track, Brymo sings about his struggles with depression, his unhealthy coping mechanisms and fighting to find the light amidst all the darkness.

While it’s one of the more muted songs on the eclectic new album, “Strippers + White Lines” still beautifully continues Brymo’s tradition of being raw and unflinching with his music.
