Zinoleesky – Call Of Duty

Zinoleesky has performed admirably this year. We could all agree with songs like “Rocking,” “Loving You,” and the recently released “Jaiye Foreign” featuring Tiwa Savage.

With the ultimate summer tune “Call Of Duty,” Zinoleesky continues a run of back-to-back hits. The Marlian music sensation combines his love of women with video games in one song, which was inspired by the game series. Zinoleesky, who was most recently nominated for the Headies’ “Next Rated,” has seen a steady rise in popularity as a representative of the next generation of Gen Z talent emerging from Africa.

Rema ft. Selena Gomez – Calm Down Remix

Rema’s incredible music has recently caught Selena Gomez’s ear, and they’ve chosen to make the experience worthwhile by working together on the remix of Rema’s hugely popular song, Calm Down.

Selena Gomez, one of the most popular musicians in the world, is obviously featured in the much-anticipated remix of Rema’s Calm Down. London and Rema, who frequently work together, co-produced the song.

During the recent years, Rema has been one of the most incredible musicians to come out of Africa. Since his debut in 2019, he has maintained his position at the top of the music conversation among artists like Burna BoyWizkidDavido, CKay, Omah LayFireboy DML, Tems, and others. He has been hot and has demonstrated his star power.

Rema has cemented a distinctive place in the broader Afrobeats conversations both locally and internationally thanks to his numerous hit recordings, certifications, and honors. He has also drawn significant interest from other artists from all over the world. Some of the artists who have expressed a great deal of interest in Rema’s songs include Drake, Chris Brown, Offset, Jason Derulo, and Selena Gomez.

Olamide – We Outside

Olamide releases We Outside, his second official single of 2022, in an effort to extend his winning streak. The song is a follow-up to his previous release, “Hate Me,” which also features Wande Coal.

Ckay – You

In preparation for the release of his upcoming album, Sad Romance, Nigerian singer-songwriter CKay has released a brand-new single titled “You.” CKay releases a new song while still enjoying the popularity of his international songs “Love Nwantiti” and “Emiliana.”

Christer Kobedi, a talented beatmaker, produced the tune. It depicts CKay pursuing his love interest while sounding cozy to the track’s melodic instrumentation.

DJ Tunez ft. Alpha P And Tay Iwar – Majo

With “Majo,” Nigerian celebrity DJ and musician DJ Tunez gives listeners a preview of what to expect on the tape before it is released as part of his Cruise Control studio project.

Alpha P, Tay Iwar, and Nigerian Afrobeat singer Wizkid are all featured in the Afrobeat groove.

This year, DJ Tunez has consistently released hit songs, and this is no different.

BNXN (Buju) ft. Wizkid – Many Ways

‘Many Ways’ is the third track housed under BNXN (Buju)’s newly released ‘Bad Since ’97’ studio album and it features Nigerian Afrobeat star, Wizkid.

After coming of age on 2021’s Sorry I’m Late—released on the back of an unprecedented run of hitmaking features and inescapable singles that established him as one of Afropop’s most talented singer-songwriters—BNXN fka Buju is enjoying bringing his music to people across the world.

Pieced together on many stops along his unending journeys crisscrossing the globe, BNXN’s sophomore project, Bad Since ’97, is an audacious attempt to situate himself among the greats of Afropop. If Sorry I’m Late was a long-winded apology to fans for a quiet 2020, Bad Since ’97 veers into self-mythology, positioning Buju as a peerless act operating at the zenith of his powers.

Lyrical Joe ft. Mr. Drew – Superman

After a lengthy lyrical feud with Amerado, Ghanaian rapper Lyrical Joe is not showing any signs of calming down. According to the reviews from music critics, many people learned about Lyrical Joe through this rap feud and his talent.

Similar to Amerado, who took advantage of the occasion to promote his forthcoming album G.I.N.A., Lyrical Joe capitalizes on the buzz to serve a new song titled ‘Superman’ and it features Highly Spiritual starboy Mr. Drew.

The song was produced by Mix Master Garzy who doubles as the manager of Lyrical Joe under imprint of 2MG Music.

Larruso – Midnight

Larruso’s sound texture has evolved and been explored if you’ve been paying close attention to his releases this year. After a strong start to the year, the Ghanaian Afro-dancehall is not showing any signs of slowing down.

Larruso is fearless and adopts a similar tone in his new song, “Midnight,” which was created by Gigzbeatz. In the passionate ballad Midnight, bedtime antics are discussed.

As he tries new genres outside of his comfort zone, Larruso continues to astound his listeners.

Skip Marley ft. Ayra Starr – Jane

When a picture of Skip Marley and Ayra Starr appeared online a few weeks ago, we speculated that a collaboration might be in the works. I guess we were correct after all. Skip Marley and Ayra Starr have combined for a new tune accompanied by a well-deserving video.

The latest single by Jamaican singer-songwriter Skip Marley, “Jane,” features Nigerian singer-songwriter Ayra Starr. Rykeyz, a gifted beatmaker, produced the Afrobeats-inspired song.

Shatta Wale – Society Contract

After posting an advertisement for his upcoming GOG album’s anticipated Nigerian media tour, Shatta Wale received a lot of backlash.

This is due to Shatta Wale disparaging several Ghanaian singers who went to Nigeria, the hub of the current Afrobeats movement, to promote their most recent music projects. He was described as being disoriented and aimless by many social media users.

But as we all know, Shatta Wale is a tough skin and will take delight in the hullabaloo. That is exactly what he did, leveraging on the clout to drop a new song.

Shatta Wale titles this self-produced Dancehall and Hip-hop fusion ‘Society Contract.’ The King Of African Dancehall asserts vehemently in the song that he owes society nothing and that no one has the authority to command him.
