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.

Joeboy — “Call”

2019 was a year filled with impressive breakout stars, and Joeboy still managed to stand out with his consistently great songs. He’s carried that energy into 2020 with the fantastic “Call”.

On the supremely catchy song, Joeboy sings to the woman he loves, promising to be there for her whenever she needs him. As the lead single from his upcoming debut album, “Call” is a truly exciting effort.

Mayorkun — “Of Lagos”

After scoring one of the biggest Nigerians songs of 2020 so far, “Geng”, DMW star, Mayorkun is already back with another certified banger, the infectious “Of Lagos”.

Even though he spends most of the song repeating “Of Lagos”, the track miraculously never feels grating or boring. It just ends up being further proof that everything Mayorkun touches turns to gold.

Ladipoe — “Know You” ft. Simi

Even though he rarely gets the attention he clearly deserves, Ladipoe never stops delivering quality. His latest single, the Simi-assisted “Know You” is just the latest reminder.

On the track, Ladipoe raps about feeling inexplicably drawn to someone he doesn’t really know that well. It’s an instantly likeable track with the potential of being his biggest song yet.
