#BumpThis: Teni, Wizkid and Ice Prince Return With Potential Hits

June 24, 2022
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, you absolutely need to hear. 

We made it to Friday! Whether or not you accomplished anything this week, you deserve to pat yourself on the back and celebrate. As your resident music “expert”, I’ve decided to put you on to some good stuff to get your weekend vibe right. 

Dig in. 

Little (Love I Love) — Teni 

When Teni loves, she loves real hard — this babe threatened to fight agberos on 2018’s Case and offered up all her money for love on last year’s For You with Davido. On her latest amapiano-inspired single, Little (Love I Love), Teni tells us, “Na love I love, I no kill somebody”. Sis, are you sure? 

Call Me Every Day — Chris Brown and Wizkid

After three songs together, I won’t be shocked if Wizkid and Chris Brown drop a joint EP. While Call Me Every Day is a single off Chris’ new album, Breezy, the vibe of the song feels very Wizkid. It’s almost like Chris is the featured artist and the song is a leftover from Made in Lagos. One thing I know for sure, though, is a lot of waists will be broken to this song. So, please, lube it up. 

Hustle — Ice Prince, Seyi Vibez and Ceeza Milli

“Hustle no dey kill nobody o!” Errm, Ice Prince, have you met me? I don’t like stress, please. After killing it last year with Oxlade on KOLO, Ice Prince is back with another potential banger, Hustle featuring Seyi Vibez and Ceeza Milli. If you liked Pheelz and BNXN’s Finesse like a normal human being, there’s a high chance you’d be into Hustle. Both songs have the same sing-along chants that just get Nigerians going!

Daylight — Bigfootinyourface and Dwin, The Stoic

Oontz oontz music is finally getting the public recognition it deserves, and I’m here for it. Like Drake’s Honestly, Nevermind album and Beyoncé’s Break My Soul, Daylight by Bigfootinyourface and Dwin, The Stoic is another house music that reminds us to forget capitalism and party. While we love Dwin’s soothing voice convincing us to dance until daylight, the Nigerian in us doesn’t fully agree with the “there’s nothing to lose” line sha. 

Let You Down — Boybreed

Even though Boybreed have two EPs and collaborations with Patoranking and Ycee under their belts, I didn’t know about them until last night. Yes, I messed up. Their newest single, Let You Down — lowkey reminds me of 2016 to 2017 Maleek Berry — is a vulnerable yet solid exploration of grief. It’s like, do I want to cry or do I want to dance? Let’s do both.  

Mind — Romi 

Listening to Romi’s Mind, I couldn’t help but say “Oh shit!” repeatedly. This is a solid song for a debut or just for an artist in general. While the reflective song slightly suffers in differentiating Romi’s vocal identity from the myriad of young Afropop singers we have today, its catchy melody and hook will worm their way into your head and stay there.  

I’m curious to see what Romi puts out next with a song like Mind

About a decade ago, collaborations between Nigerian and international stars never felt organic or even remotely impactful — the best that fans could hope for were laughably lacklustre verses on remixes to already established hits. With each passing year, however, these team-ups get bigger, better and much more intentional. In this regard, 2019 has been […]
