Samini – Be Alright

“Good Vibes, Feel High, Live Life”, these powerful opening lines for the song already sets the tone for the theme of the message embedded in this new big record. Flawless production, crisp sound, and audible vocals with groovy harmonies is what Samini brings with his just-released song to shut down year 2022 in fine style.

Samini always comes through as the ‘Vocal Saviour’ in very ugly situations; he has proven that within different periods – he seems to be the mollifying factor. “Be Alright”, his latest single is not just a swooning record but a therapeutic masterpiece he releases to comfort Ghanaians in the face of recent economic hardships.

The song is live-produced. A Reggae song with a classic production; comes across with a combination of school ska, raga, and a touch of highlife ensembles.

In such ‘turbulent’ ties with global crisis hitting socio-economic sectors, crazy inflations, fuel hikes and food scarcity coupled with expensive labels on goods and services, “Be Alright” by Samini is sure that ONE SONG you need in your ears to help you carry through and survive instead of the verbosity on Radio and Television by politicians.

Wizkid – Money & Love

The release date of Wizkid’s fifth studio album, More Love Less Ego, which is set for November 6th, has finally been made official. He unlocked a new song called Money & Love after the confirmation.

Remember that he had earlier shown off the song Money & Love in the original Bad To Me music video? It is the lead single on the soon-to-be-released More Love More Ego album, which P2J, a usual suspect, produced.

In addition, he said a music video would be released in due course. Here is Money & Love to soothe our nerves while we wait for the release of “More Love Less Ego.”

Blaqbonez ft. Lojay & Amaarae – Whistle

‘Whistle’ is the third track housed under Blaqbonez’s debut album ‘Young Preacher’ and it features Ghanaian-American singer and producer Amaarae along with Nigerian singer, Lojay.

Blaqbonez had already evolved a formulaic strategy to entice listeners to a fun side of himself by the time 2021’s Sex Over Love appeared, so helping to lengthen the shelf life of his releases. His funny persona conveyed a contentious idea of reeling in pleasure rather than being tied to a love connection using this strategy, which developed into Sex Over Love. The message, which was equally colorful and contemplative, resonated with Blaqbonez and brought him a lot of hits.

Using his love for women, difficult observations on his childhood and the luxuries fame now grants him, this theme is reiterated in Young Preacher. The 14-tracklist body of work Young Preacher featuring notable names like Amaarae, Lojay, Tekno, Tay Iwar, and others has a sophisticated, soulful sound that is characterized by several beat changes, guitar, and keyboard embellishments, and in-depth narration. It’s like a gospel of Blaqbonez.

Mr. Drew ft. Medikal – 2 Shots

Ghanaian singer and songwriter Mr. Drew has released a new tune in anticipation of the December festive season. Mr. Drew presented us with bangers in December, as he has done for the past three years in a row.

Mr. Drew has put out a possible dance-flow cracker ‘2 Shots’ in keeping with his customary style. He calls on Ghanaian rapper Medikal to add a catchy line that brings the song to life.

The previous two songs written by Mr. Drew and Medikal together were “S3k3” and “This Year.” With expectations that this would follow in their footsteps, both songs found commercial success.

The song was produced by the prolific Ghanaian music producer Mix Master Garzy.

Guiltybeatz ft. Joey B – Little Bit

Guiltybeatz, a prolific Ghanaian producer, and Joey B, a talented Ghanaian performer, have collaborated on a new song. The team, who get along well at work and have previously teamed up to collaborate on incredible projects, is back at it. The song by Guiltybeatz, “Little Bit,” is an Amapiano tune that features incredible orchestration and a standout Joey B verse.

D Jay & Mr. Eazi – Balance It (Remix)

The song “Balance It” by Ghanaian singer D Jay is an appealing masterpiece drenched in seductive melodies, which is why the song has amassed enormous streaming statistics.

With this song, D Jay has won over many listeners and put the Afrobeat community in a chokehold with a number of Tiktok challenge submissions. Mr. Eazi, a singer and businessman from Nigeria, is one person who has shown his love for the talented musician.

Together, D Jay and Mr. Eazi remix the song to give it fresh life. The vocal appeal of the remix of “Balance It” continually produces an acoustically overwhelming sensation. Excellent words are also present, and they all jive with the production’s bass-heavy beat from Samsney, D Jay’s go-to producer.

Bella Shmurda & Popcaan – So Cold

Bella Shmurda, a street-hop musician from Nigeria, has unveiled his 15-track album dubbed Hypertension.

Bella Shmurda adds to his discography with the release of his debut album, Hypertension. Finally, the project that fans and listeners have been waiting for for more than a year has arrived.

The name of the new Hypertension album was inspired by his previous extended play High Tension and its follow-up (2.0). There are 15 beautiful songs on the album, and PhynoOmah LaySimi, BackRoad Gee, Not3s, L.A.X, Victony, and Popcaan all make cameo appearances.

Phyno – BBO (Bad Bxtches Only)

The frontman of Penthauze, Phyno, has released a brand-new song for his fans. Following the successful release of “Full Current,” which featured Tekno, the seasoned Nigerian rapper and singer has released “BBO,” an acronym for “Bad Bxtches Only,” which has the potential to become a street anthem.

The song is unquestionably a mega-hit in the making and one that Detty December would approve of.

OV – Shush

An oral release from the depths of her heart poured into a song with an important social message, OV’s Shush will in due time be seen as the song that reignited her career.

Shush is the flame that refused to go down when the artist had a moment where she was down with personal conflicts that she has outlined in a tell-it-all documentary. When you watch that documentary to its end, you will come to one exciting conclusion, OV is back!

Back from the self-inflicted doldrums that nearly swayed her away. Back from the clutches of being one of those talents who couldn’t make it. Back from being constantly seen in the sha
dows of her past failed music beginnings, and now an unleashed-well-cooked artist and a matured individual.

“Shush” by OV is not just a song for you, it’s a statement for all.

Lil Kesh – Talk And Do

Lil Kesh is a gifted musician from Nigeria with a discography that includes a number of chart-topping songs. Since his inception, he has continued to uphold a high level.

Lil Kesh has released a new single titled ‘Talk and Do.’ The song has an attractive melody and a chorus that is sure to catch one’s attention after the first hearing.

The Niphkeyz-produced tune follows the release of Vanilla Bottega, a song featuring Joeboy.
