#BumpThis: Yung L’s “Tropicana Baby”


January 14, 2020

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 daily series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.


Yung L — “Tropicana Baby”

A severely underrated artist, Yung L is relentless in his pursuit of becoming the star he’s clearly meant to be. He consistently puts out solid songs (and equally impressive music videos), but he rarely seems to get the attention he deserves.

Hopefully, that all changes with “Tropicana Baby” — the first single off his upcoming project, Juice & Zimm. The dancehall-influenced banger has all the trappings of a proper hit, specifically it’s brief runtime and infectious T.U.C-produced beat.

Back in 2019, there were a ton of afropop songs to zanku to, but not nearly enough to whine to. “Tropicana Baby”, which is dedicated to girls who like to party, is here to help with that. We just hope the track doesn’t end up flying under the radar like the ones before it.
