Seems Drake is reciprocating the favour with Wizkid, who’s just released a new danceable beat titled ‘Closer’. It’s been a surprise release and doesn’t sound half bad. Enjoy the audio here:

2. Juliana Kanyomozi – I’m Still Here

Ugandan singer Juliana has been through the fire and the storm, but she’s still here. It may look a lot like J.Lo’s ‘Ain’t Your Mama’, but ‘I’m Still Here’ is still an amazing video, laden with luscious lyrics:

5. Kendrick Lamar – Humble

One of the greatest rappers of our time, Kendrick, has unleashed a new video ‘Humble’, barely 8 days ahead of his highly anticipated album.
