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.
Peruzzi — “Gunshot”
While undeniably talented, both as a songwriter and a performer, Peruzzi can be pretty hit or miss with his releases. Thankfully, his latest single, “Gunshot” falls squarely into the ‘hit’ category.
On the solidly produced track, Peruzzi sings about an attractive woman he’s powerless to resist. Peruzzi has released a few impressive solo tracks since he broke out, but “Gunshot” rises above the rest due to sheer catchiness.
Wande Coal — “Again”
At this point in his career, Wande Coal has nothing left to prove. He’s already dropped enough gems to validate his status as one of afropop’s greatest stars, but that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to deliver.
His newest single, “Again” finds him at the peak of his considerable powers, utilising his standout voice and typically heartwarming lyrics, making this the best thing he has put out in over a year.
Patoranking — “I’m In Love”
Patoranking has been one of Nigeria’s most consistent stars since he broke out, dropping at least one defining banger every year. To kick off the new decade, he’s come through with another solid single, “I’m In Love”.
On the dancehall-influenced track, Patoranking sings about feeling blessed to have found the woman of his dreams. It’s a delightful love song that continues the singer’s seemingly endless streak.
