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.
Mr Eazi — “Kpalanga”
Mr Eazi’s capacity seems limitless, both as a businessman and a musician. That being said, Mr Eazi the artist is our favourite iteration of the multi-hyphenate, and he just reminded us why with his new single, “Kpalanga”.
On the track, Mr Eazi sings about a girl he’s trying to woo, promising to give her anything to prove his love. Not only is “Kpalanga” immensely catchy, but Mr Eazi also gets to flex his vocal chops more than he has in a while.
Runtown – “Body Riddim” ft. Darkovibes & Bella Shmurda
Runtown doesn’t get nearly enough credit for just how consistent he is. The versatile afropop star rarely drops a weak track, and his latest effort, “Body Riddim” continues that impressive streak.
Featuring two exciting up-and-comers, Bella Shmurda and Darkovibes, “Body Riddim” is a sultry song about a woman’s undeniable beauty. Runtown is expectedly stellar, but it’s Bella Shmurda that’s the real MVP.
Blaq Jerzee – “Arizona” ft. Wizkid
One of the last great releases of 2019 was “Blow” by Wizkid and Blaq Jerzee. Thankfully, it didn’t take too long for both stars to reunite, as Wizkid joins Blaq Jerzee on his solid new track, “Arizona”.
On the self-produced banger, both stars sing about weed, women and wealth. While Blaq Jerzee stole the show on “Blow”, Wizkid dominates this time around, delivering yet another standout hook.
