#BumpThis: D-Truce’s “For You” & A-Q’s “Distraction 2”

October 14, 2019

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 daily series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.

D-Truce’s “For You” ft. Bella Alubo

With the release of projects from Asa (Lucid), Teni (Billionaire) and Wale (Wow… That’s Crazy), Friday was stacked with a lot of great new music. However, that meant a few solid singles got lost in the shuffle, with the strongest of the lot being D-Truce’s fantastic “For You”, featuring Bella Alubo.

On the track, D-Truce skillfully raps about a passionate relationship that has made him a better man. Bella Alubo then joins in halfway and instantly makes the song better, nearly stealing the show with her sultry voice. At the end of its almost 3-minute runtime, “For You” emerges as one of the year’s strongest duets.

A-Q – “Distraction 2”

Most of the year has been rife with seemingly endless rap beefs, but none of them have gotten half as much attention as the M.I-Vector saga. Following Vector’s diss track, “Judas The Rat”, the lyrically gifted A-Q – an affiliate of M.I – has now responded with the scathing “Distraction 2”.

On the relentless track, A-Q goes all in, spilling tea and throwing shots. While the production work isn’t particularly memorable, it ends up not mattering much, as A-Q’s bars prop up the track and keep us engaged for its lengthy runtime. In a year filled with diss tracks, “Distraction 2” stands out as the most brutal.
