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.
Mayorkun — “Geng”
Mayorkun is one of the most gifted afropop stars working today, and every new song reaffirms that fact. For his first release of the year, “Geng”, he proves that he’s even capable of turning a freestyle into a certified bop.
On “Geng”, Mayorkun seems to be having more fun than he’s ever had on a track, as he calls out posers and brags about his crew. It’s an exciting start for DMW’s not-so-secret weapon, prepping us for what’s to come.
Jamal Swiss — “Lifestyle” ft. Remy Baggins
A criminally underrated star, Jamal Swiss is yet to drop a weak song. For his first release of 2020, he keeps that same energy, enlisting the silky-voiced Remy Baggins for the hypnotic “Lifestyle”.
On the Jay Blakez-produced track, Jamal raps about the allure of his party-hopping lifestyle. A perfect fit for the track, the talented Remy delivers a killer hook that effortlessly complements Jamal’s solid verses.
