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.

Yemi Alade — “Boyz”

Last year, Yemi Alade dropped the cohesive and far-reaching Woman of Steel — easily her strongest body of work to date. Now, she’s back with her first single of the year, “Boyz”.

On the deliriously catchy track, Yemi Alade gleefully sings about the kind of men she likes. This is the first taste of her upcoming album, and we’re glad to report that she delivers.

DNA — “Monalisa”

While they don’t release songs as frequently as fans might like, whenever twin duo, DNA do put out new music, they tend to impress. Their new 4-track EP, Gemini, is no different.

“Monalisa”, the project’s standout track, finds the brothers at the top of their game. On the smooth love song, their voices have never sounded so assured and their synergy has never been more potent.
