#BumpThis: Adekunle Gold’s “Something Different”, DRB’s “Trouble” & Terri’s “My Chest”

May 4, 2020

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.


Adekunle Gold — “Something Different”

With each new release, it becomes clearer that Adekunle Gold’s new era is set to be his greatest yet. After gems like “Kelegbe Megbe” and “Jore”, he’s now released the astonishing “Something Different”.

On the groovy track, Adekunle Gold sings about a lover who left when he had nothing. It’s an infectious single that showcases the singer’s impressive range and gets us even more hyped for his upcoming album, Afro Pop.

DRB — “Trouble” ft. Tems

Last week, DRB finally dropped their debut album, Pioneers — a project that has been 10 years in the making — and it’s everything we hoped it would be. A standout of the nearly flawless LP is the Tems-assisted “Trouble”.

On the Adey-produced track, everyone gets a chance to shine, but it’s Tems who steals the show with an unforgettable hook (we expect “Trouble is what excites me” to occupy Instagram captions aplenty).

Terri — “My Chest”

Since the success of “Soco”, we’ve been waiting for Terri, one of the song’s standouts, to deliver on all the promise he showed. Well, he’s finally done that with his fantastic debut EP, Afro Series.

Every single song on the project is solid, but “My Chest” is easily the strongest. It’s a fun and instantly likeable track that has the potential to be the singer’s biggest hit.
