Eroticism is one theme that Afrobeats effortlessly eats anytime it comes to it. Whether directly, subtly or figuratively, it’s clear through these particular songs that artists can communicate their romantic and hedonist desires well.
Ready — Sarz, Fxrtune & Pjstar
Straight-up uncouth, Ready fills your head with Kama Sutra. This song is for the real eaters — the ones who won’t leave the sheets before a complimentary buffet.
YAHWEH — Lojay
Hold your church mind; don’t get it twisted that this has anything to do with God. This song supports the sweet gibberish you mutter in the course of the sloppiest “slurp-slurp”.
Water from Wine — Amaarae
Amaarae sings for those who’ll text back “omw” when their sneaky link calls. They just want to have a good time that’ll keep their satisfier on speed dial.
Water — Tyla
When realisation hits that this song isn’t about hard labour nor a conversation with a workout instructor, your mind quickly unwraps the subtle request for an intense genital meet-and-greet. As a queen who values her time, Tyla asks, “Can you blow my mind?” If she has to hustle for her own nut, you’re better off seated in your house.
Attends — Brazy
This fast-tempo House song takes you straight to the dance floor. When Brazy says, “Whine your waist, oda bi rubber,” you have to obey and put your flexible low waist to serious grinding. But with, “Cheat on me, I cheat on you” Brazy preaches that you pay your liaison back in their coin.
Amma HOE — Bizzonthetrack
On this self-confessed jam about being a hoe, Bizzonthetrack makes it clear he’s unavailable for commitment. He’s only committed to whoring activities.
Boytoy — SGaWD
The sexual awareness SGaWD flaunts on Boytoy is admirable AF. This song is for the sexually liberated folks who own it with their chest.
Shibebe — Olamide feat. Fireboy DML
Indoor is where the fun is at. You have all the time, space and privacy to “shibebe” (flaunt your waistbeads), Netflix and chill, do waterworks and all other sorts of debauchery. At least, that’s what Olamide Baddo and Fireboy DML said on this track.
