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.
Somadina — “dont need” ft. Jay10
Last month, Complex rightfully heralded Somadina as one of the Nigerian up-and-comers to watch out for in 2020 — alongside the likes of Tems, Joeboy and Fireboy DML — and now, the gifted rising star has proven why with her astonishing debut project, Five Stages.
On the EP, Somadina goes through the five stages of grief, starting with denial (“but i should”) and finally ending on acceptance (“a capella”). However, the emotion that births the strongest track is unsurprisingly the most explosive, anger (“dont need”).
On the track, Somadina seems to be mad at both a good-for-nothing lover and herself for keeping up with his shit for so long, Jay10, the only feature on the project, earns his place, delivering a solid verse that complements Somadina’s simmering rage on the rest of the song.
