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.

Nissi — “Trouble”

Nissi Ogulu, Burna Boy’s younger sister, is a very promising star. While she doesn’t drop songs as frequently as we’d like, when she does, it’s always a delight. That’s the case with her two new releases, “Trouble” and “Tornado”.

Both songs are really strong, but “Trouble” definitely stands out the most. Impressively produced by Kizz Ernie, the track is the more upbeat of the two, wearing its dancehall influence on its sleeve.

On “Trouble”, Nissi brags about her and her girls being a cut above the rest. It’s the kind of confident song that feels primed to be a girl-power anthem, especially if it gets some much-deserved mainstream love.
